Founded 1995

  • Mission statement

    For the sake of their children and the well-being of our society abusers urgently need help to change their violent aggressive abuse behaviours. Both men and women are abusers. It follows that both men and women need help to change their behaviours. Children are frequently very badly damaged by what they witness, what they experience, and from the fall-out when relationships separate.

    Our mission is the improvement of the behaviours of men and women who are violent and or abusive to a wife or husband a partner or former partner. We view this a vitally important work for the well-being and welfare of children who represeant by far the biggest group of victims of inter-familial abuse. Children are often very badly traumatised by the consequences of witnessing the behaviours, of becoming involved, directly and indirectly and by the fall-out when a parent gets sent to prison or gets separated from them. Very sadly children are also quite frequently placed in the position of being pawns in disputes between parents.
    Radical feminism holds men accountable for all domestic abuse, attempting to send men on ineffective programmes, Duluth style and "power and control" whilst sending female abusers on "The Freedom Programme" for victims of (men's ) violence.

  • Aims

    Temper (Domestic Violence) Ltd aims to:

    • To work quickly and effectively in groups with male and female domestic abusers and to support them in ongoing processes.
    • To bring to the attention of authorities that a gender inclusive approach is necessary and that the "power and control" mantra is largely wrong. Most IPV is about situational couple violence.
    • Emotions drive behaviours. Emotions precede thoughts. They colour and focus all thoughts. Emotions need working with so they can be "named and tamed". The emotion wheel we develop needs publicity.
