The BRAVE Project - Training:
“Working With Men”
Over four weekends (one weekend a month for four months, in the spring of 2007) a series of experiential, workshop based sessions around what is needed to work with men. Although the focus of the work will be working with men around anger and violence, there will be the opportunity to look at some of the common problems of working with men:
-for men….have you looked deeply into yourself, to know yourself before you try to help other men change. You are your source of knowledge about men.
-for women….do you really know men, or are you mostly dealing with the defences and masks.
The training will be run in Guiseley, Leeds. Each weekend will have a theme. One day the training will be run by Sue and Pete Dominey of the BRAVE project and will consist of the sort of work that we ask the men of BRAVE to do. You will learn about the work, as well as learning about yourself. The second day of each weekend will have a visiting trainer who will expand on the theme of the weekend.
