Men's Self-advocacy - Weeks 3 & 4

Week 3 of our course focussed on the men identifying what they need from others in order to be strong self-advocates.

In Week 4 we spent time discussing aggressive, passive and assertive styles of behaviour and why they are or aren't effective. We watched the locally made movie Beautiful http://www.artsaccessaustralia.org/news/230-beautiful and identified and discussed behaviour styles and more effective ways of dealing with issues.

Each week we spend time discussing individual goals for change, and a group goal. The group's goal will culminate in an outing at our final session.

We also read and discussed several recent or relevant articles of interest:
