Changing for Good is a program to help men stop using violence in their family and relationships.
We work with men to help them recognise their abusive behaviours and end their use of violence. By providing ongoing support, specialist counselling and resources, our goal is to help men make and sustain changes in violent or abusive behaviours as well as attitudes that support violent behaviours.
By working with men to end their use of violence, we help to increase the safety of women and children who have or are experiencing domestic or family violence.
How does it work?
Changing for Good is a free voluntary program for men who have completed a men’s behaviour change program in the previous six months.
Changing for Good aims to build on the work already started in a men’s behaviour change program, further educating and supporting men to maintain respectful and violence free relationships.
Participants will have the support of two specialist counsellors for up to twelve months who will provide telephone counselling sessions and psychoeducation as often as needed depending on individual circumstances. Participants also receive regular newsletters and SMS messages with helpful tips, strategies and other helpful tools.
The program is designed to help men identify and work towards their individual goals, as well as support them to access any additional services if and when required.
Who is it for?
Changing for Good provides free telephone counselling to anyone who has completed a men’s behaviour change program.
Men’s behaviour change programs are an important starting point in the journey to respectful and violence-free relationships and we know many men are keen to access further support when their programs end. Changing for Good will work with you to maintain change and establish violence-free relationships.
