The Male Freedom Programme is an awareness only programme and run at RCT Drake St office every 2-3 months. The course is delivered over 2 days.
On receipt of the referral Jenny will make contact and arrange a pre-course meeting that usually last 30-45 mins; this is to assess the men and make sure they will be suitable for the group work. On this we cover exactly what is covered on the ladies, we then ask the men to look at violent, abusive and controlling behaviours that men perpetrate on women and how this then affects the ladies and the children. When the course is finished we invite the men to come back for a post –course meeting approx. 1-2 weeks later to see what they have actually got out of the course and if they can implement some of their new knowledge into their relationships. Referrals can be taken off professionals or self-referrals.
The programme is 2 full days and runs from 9am to 4pm.
