Course Description

This training helps to create community safety, by learning how to respond to men who perpetrate violence. Engaging with both victims and perpetrators of family domestic violence is critical for the safety of families. Through education about the consequences of their actions, qualified facilitators can help to avert further harm.

In a counselling context, this training will cover;
• The factors that promote behaviour change in men who abuse
• How to support the process of accepting responsibility
• How to assist men to seek help

Agencies and workers are often privy only to the aftermath of a single incident in this ongoing pattern. Working Therapeutically with Men Who Perpetrate Violence can help make a positive difference for men and families, to support personal accountability and better understand patterns of behaviour.
