QUT is currently conducting a research study focused on treatment interventions for men who struggle with controlling behaviours or have difficulty managing anger and may become aggressive. The goal of this project is to create, implement and evaluate a 12-week group psychotherapy program to support men who experience anger to the point of losing control. We welcome male participants to take part in this study at no cost.
NB This research is being conducted through QUT and is independent of the services offered by Misso Psychology & Consulting. Research participants that may require further counselling support will be referred to other independent providers.
The program helps participants to improve their thinking and behaviour with the aim of improving the quality of their relationships. The program involves participating in a 12-week group treatment program during which participants are offered the opportunity to discuss their behaviours within a personally supportive context, and to engage in discussion aimed at enhancing thinking styles and self-control.
We are inviting men who are 18 years and older and who experience issues with anger and controlling behaviours towards an intimate partner to participate. We also invite their female partners to participate in a separate activity where they will be asked about their experiences with their male partners at specified times during the program.
Men who identify as being controlling or aggressive in their intimate relationships will attend the 12-week program. The men’s female partners are also invited to be a part of the program and will participate in information sharing. Issues around safety will be prioritised. The program will be evaluated for research purposes and is provided at no cost to participants.
Please call 3342 1838 and we will answer any questions you might have. We will provide you with more information on the research and the group program so you can make an informed decision about participating.
