“I already feel safer and my husband is more willing to listen to me,” says one woman who’s partner has been attending CatholicCare’s Back on Track program this year. The program was launched in April and is a 30-week group program for men who are using violence, abuse, or coercive control in their relationships and with their families.
Men who may have a history of violence but who wish to understand themselves better are taking part in a ground-breaking program delivered by CatholicCare Diocese of Broken Bay (CCDBB) at The Glen on the Central Coast. The Glen was established by the Ngaimpe Aboriginal Corporation in 1994 and is the only male-specific Central Coast Drug & Alcohol Rehabilitation Centre.
Caring Dads is for men who are committed to changing behaviours in order to be better, more child-centred fathers. The program was developed in Canada by the University of Toronto, and is quite new to Australia.
