Do you really believe that this resource will be used as an `abusers handbook' and that a violent and abusive man needs to have this manual in his back pocket for handy hints and tactics to further increase his violence - or a psychologically manipulative perpetrator needs this manual as his `dictionary' to further mentally torture us - I don't think so!
I have observed FP Men's Programme's and interviewed men who state - from the awareness and understanding they gain - leave the intervention with the belief they could stop their abuse - and/or have strategies in place to help them towards this goal. Many of them have been successful!
This manual now provides men with the opportunity to have a written resource for them to monitor their own behaviour - and if they have the motivation and drive to engage in this process - could result in positive transformation!
I note the one of the reviews on here is disparaging to say the least. This is one the reason agencies are put off working with the perpetrators never challenging their beliefs.
For the information of the writer of that review, at the last program that I attended 3 women decided mid program to leave their abusers and were assisted to do this safely. The partners of men on the program were monitored closely to ensure their safety.
I suspect the bad review was written by a member of Respect, who charge at last look £7000 to get programs accredited and then more thousands yearly to stay accredited and then more to take part in training, what a money making machine that is. Working for the victims or the overpaid workers sitting in an office dictating how programs should be done according to them ?
If you are a man wanting to change or want all those questions answered that you didn't feel you could ask, then go for it, you will not get a better book than this.
