The Change Em Ways (CEW) program is a federally funded Mens Behaviour Change Program which has been developed within a culturally secure, trauma informed framework for Indigenous men who have been involved in and wish to cease using family and domestic violence.
The program is premised on a number of core values:
- Safety, Accountability and Responsibility
- Respect for Country, Culture and Family
- Strength-based Trauma-informed Healing
- Support for Women and Children
The CEW program recognises the importance of partner contact during the men’s participation in the MBC process and a holistic approach being central to address and break the cycle of Indigenous Family Violence by engaging the man’s partner, family, children and community.
