Course Description

Learn how to respond to men who perpetrate violence and, as a result, contribute towards greater community safety. Engaging with both victims and perpetrators of family domestic violence is critical for the safety of affected families.

Qualified facilitators can help avert further harm by educating abusive men about the consequences of their actions. In a counselling context, this training covers:

  • 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 may only see the aftermath of a single incident in an ongoing pattern. Training in working therapeutically with men who perpetrate violence can help make a positive difference for men and families by supporting personal accountability and better understanding of patterns of behaviour.
