Facilitator Training

    Men's Program

The Counterpoint Men’s Program Facilitator training was officially launched in 2004. This training offers a total of 185 hours of training for workers who want training to work with abusive men. It includes theory classes, group work, supervision, peer review, team development meetings, mentoring and numerous opportunities for personal and professional development in domestic violence through an internship.

The training encompasses diverse aspects of domestic violence including the context of violence against women, philosophy, principles of domestic violence work and the Coordinated Community Response model in Toronto. The group work approach in this training is based on Paulo Freire’s pedagogy and the well-known Duluth psycho-educational model. The Counterpoint’s senior staff are responsible for the instruction and supervision of the internship program. Senior staff at Counterpoint and affiliates consists of psychologists, social workers and program workers who have many years of experience in doing group work and men’s programs.
