Communicare's Breathing Space men's behaviour change program
is featured in a new SBS
documentary series that aims to confront and start a crucial conversation about the alarming rates of domestic violence in Australia.
Hosted by investigative journalist, Jess Hill, and inspired by her award-winning book of the same name, See What You Made Me Do is a three-part documentary series that shines a light on domestic abuse and the national crisis currently unfolding across Australia.
The series starts at 8:30pm tonight, Wednesday 5 May, and continues at the same day and time over the next three weeks.
Our Breathing Space program is the focus of Episode three of the documentary on Wednesday 19 May, where Jess explores a range of innovations to prevent domestic violence by addressing the behaviour of perpetrators. As the first residential men's behavioural change program in the southern hemisphere, Breathing Space demonstrates the effectiveness of working with men on positive strategies for long-term change, while allowing women and children to remain safe in the family home.
Filmed by the team from Northern Pictures at our Calista facility over the course of a number of days last September, our program facilitators and participants provided a rare insight into the positive impacts and potential life-changing opportunities Breathing Space provides.
See What You Made Me Do will air weekly during Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month and premieres 8.30pm Wednesday, 5 May on SBS and SBS On Demand.
