Peterborough Relationship Support (PRS) provides support for behaviour change through group work programmes. Our Stop the Hurt programme is designed to increase understanding about what behaviours are abusive and help people who want to change to learn positive techniques for handling conflict. PRS are also able to develop new programmes based on specific needs. The Stop the Hurt behaviour change programme is a therapeutic 17-week programme for males or females aged 16+ who use abusive behaviours towards their partners, ex partners, children, or other family members. The programme is designed to help teach positive, non-abusive ways to handle conflict situations, and provides those who attend with a tool kit of tips and strategies that can be used immediately. It also highlights the benefits of building and maintaining healthy, respectful relationships. Men and women who are accepted onto the programme will acknowledge the need to change their behaviour, and have a desire to change and demonstrate a commitment to doing so. There is an assessment process involving a 1.5-2 hour information gathering session, after which a decision will be made as to your suitability to the programme. There is a weekly charge of 50 per person for those accepted. Those accepted into Stop the Hurt are expected to attend every weekly session and talk openly about their behaviour, understand the impact on their partner, family and take responsibility for their behaviour. Participants are expected to engage fully in all activities. The most common misconception about domestic abuse is that it only involves physical violence. This is not the case - there are several kinds of domestic abuse including emotional, psychological, physical, sexual and financial as well as coercive control. If you find yourself shouting insults at your partner in an attempt to make them feel bad about him or herself, or refusing to allow them access to money, you may be a domestic abuser.
