How does No Excuses help people?

This programme is for people who are either self-referred or referred and/or required to attend by the courts, community probation, or another agency and it:

  • Examines and challenges beliefs that support violence and coercive control.
  • Looks at the effects that abuse has on the people who are victimised.
  • Teaches non-controlling and non-violent alternatives.
  • Does not judge the people who use abuse, but judges abusive behaviour and focuses on engaging with participants so that they feel comfortable to talk openly about their past and present behaviour.
  • Often motivates participants to change by discussing the impact of violence and abusive behaviour on their children.
