PARTNER SUPPORT FOR MEN’S BEHAVIOUR CHANGE PROGRAM

As part of their Marra’ka Mbarintja Family Violence Prevention Program Tangentyere Council runs the Men’s Behavioural Change Program (MBCP). These programs exist to support women and children to be safe. Men who use violence (including being controlling) and abuse in their intimate and family relationships, attend weekly sessions to talk about violence, and how they can make change. 

 

A condition of the MBCP is that one of our Women’s Safety Support Workers contacts you, if your partner or ex-partner is going to be on the program. This is to make sure you get support and information, while he is going through the program.

 

We offer partner support to you because we recognise that domestic, family and sexual violence is more commonly experienced by women, because of male behaviours that are about power and control.

A lot of men believe women are not equal, that women are less important and that violence towards them is ok.

 

We are here to support women and to advocate for men’s behavioural change.

 

No women are referred to us through the MBCP from Tangentyere.
