This timely book presents a new way of working with abusive men, to challenge and support them to take responsibility for behaviour they use against women and children. This book clearly outlines a model of engaging in men's behaviour change, together with an explanation of the principles underpinning it. A constructivist approach is used, challenging men's violence against women. It was developed in rural Australia and called the Men's SHED (Self Help Ending Domestics) Project. Personal Construct Theory provides the foundation for this approach, at an individual, group and community level. This example of practice research enables an exploration of constructive alternatives for challenging men's abuse and violence. It engenders hope that men can learn to take responsibility for their own abusive behaviour and challenge other men to do like wise. The greater safety and happiness of women, children and men, is the ultimate aim of this easy to read practice research.
