The duration of the program is 32 hours/16 sessions one session per week, with the addition of individual sessions for intake, risk assessment, orientation and exit session.
The focus is on how Men can take responsibility to change their beliefs, their behavior, and decision making without using violence, and how to use this knowledge to make positive change for healthy, respectful and safe relationships.
The program facilitates a process whereby men can identify positive changes they can make to increase the safety for women and children in their lives,and to help them become better men, fathers, and partners into the future. The four core principles that are constantly reinforced in the program are gendered analysis of power and control, safety, respect and responsibility.
