    The Men’s Behaviour Change program aims to explore the impacts of abuse and violence on our partners, children, ourselves and others. We explore ideas about men’s role within the world and relationship, and examine the ideas that help/hurt what we are trying to achieve. We look at responses to conflict and what we contribute to the problem and how we can take responsibility for safety and self. Communication, self-reflection and dealing with strong emotions are also important elements of the group work program.

    Engage2Change will now be delivered in Kempsey (starting February 28th), Coffs Harbour (starting February 27th) and Nambucca Valley (mid-year). Service and Self Referrals are welcome.

    Alongside this program is the Women and Children’s Advocate who will support current or ex-partners of the men participating in the Engage2Change program.
