A Better Way

A Better Way Men’s & Women’s Group is a prevention program that provides participants with the education, skills, and resources required to make the necessary changes in their relationships and to resolve conflicts peacefully. Men’s groups meet separately from any women’s groups. Both partners are encouraged to attend, but this is not a requirement.

Registration is required and a registration fee may apply.

Is This For Me?

  • Do you feel unable to express emotions within your relationship without fear or reprisal?

  • Do you withhold sex or money from your partner to gain power in the relationship?
  • Do you use the “silent treatment” or threats to gain power within your relationship?
  • Do you regret the things you may have said or done to your partner while under the influence of drugs or alcohol?
  • Did you grow up believing that men have to be in charge? Does this gender role create conflict in your relationship?
