We believe that enhancing human welfare demands fundamental social changes and hence, challenge society’s traditional attitude. The family court system, CAFCASS, and police have too often oppressed men rather than liberation even after there are enough physical evidences that prove male victim’s innocence.
When CAFCASS and the family court system insist that the rules of the game count more than the outcome, injustice is tolerated. Reason being, it seems to result from a legitimate process and not from institutionalized structural factors. This favours women at the expense of their male victims.
HELP 4 MALE VICTIMS OF INTIMATE PARTNER’S VIOLENCE refers and provides support to deal with every aspect. This includes going to court for child(ren) custody battle.
We also look into the relationships or marriage to see how best it could be restored. We aim to improve communication between both the parties for the best interest of the children.
We encourage the present and potential male victims to pursue personal and collective empowerment. Be attuned to issues of partner’s violence/abuse and demonstrate sensitivity towards gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and other “differences” that are devalued by society. We participate in social movement activities and model for “clients” to involve in social change.
We work in a highly participatory and collaborative manner with “clients” to share power over the therapeutic process. We address internal experiences and concrete realities faced by our “clients.” Besides, we work with them in the best way possible and accompany them to court if they desire. The aim behind doing so is obtaining resources and support from other sources or to advocate for themselves. We put our best foot forward to move beyond therapy and develop supportive social networks. This way, we participate in self-help/mutual aid groups and other community organizations that are focused on mutual support and social change.
