Programs addressing men’s abusive behavior need to include reflection and accountability that confronts harmful gender norms and learned behaviors reinforcing male entitlement and privilege. Ulester Douglas, former director of Men Stopping Violence, Scott Miller, advocate and coordinator at Domestic Abuse Intervention Programs, and Melissa Scaia, Director of International Training for Global Rights for Women and men’s group facilitator of Pathways to Family Peace, will share critical insight into how men’s behavior change programs can be effective, and what centering survivor needs in this process looks like to prioritize women’s safety. Part I: Can He Change? is not a prerequisite to this ongoing conversation.
