Men's Support Group
What is our Men's Group?
This is a therapeutic program for male victims of violence in an intimate partner relationship. It is a program that focuses on therapeutic change for men who want to be part of a healthy relationship and have a non-abusive future. The 8 week program addresses issues of abuse in intimate relationships and offers methods of coping with its effects.
The goals of the program are for participants to:
- Participants recognize and understand abuse dynamics.
- Participants take responsibility for choices related to their own and their children's well-being.
- Participants gain confidence in their ability to co-create healthy, abuse-free relationships.
There are four principle sections in the group, each section building on the knowledge and understanding gained in the previous components.
- Validation that the men are, or have been, victims of abuse.
- Identification and recognition of abusive behaviors.
- Challenging prevailing belief systems.
- Regaining confidence in the ability to have healthy, non-abusive relationships.
- This program is free.
