In general, harmful behaviour constitutes any action which causes pain or harm in someone else. There is an infinite amount of actions which have the potential to cause pain or harm, and many of those actions are not necessarily intentional. If you have used these behaviours on the following list towards your partner, you are engaging in acts of Domestic Violence
MOVE provides awareness of the issue of Domestic Violence to reinforce the concept that violent behaviour is unacceptable and works with a network of other relevant statutory and voluntary agencies as part of a coordinated community response to end violence against women. MOVE believes that violence is a learned behaviour which can be unlearned.
Men attending MOVE will experience a respectful, person centred environment, which is conducive to change. MOVE will ensure their conditions of confidentiality are communicated to clients, women partners and referring agents.
We offer a weekly group session in which men can:
• Learn to stop the violence
• Learn to spot danger signs
• Learn to break out of isolation
• Learn other ways of expressing strong feelings safely
• Learn to build healthy relationships
If your partner is violent or you know someone who is, perhaps you could refer them to us and help someone to take the first step in changing their beliefs and behaviour.
MOVE Ireland is a national voluntary organisation with charitable status that provides intervention programmes free of charge for perpetrators of domestic violence at a range of locations around Ireland, which are listed above.
