Z was referred to The Hampton Trust via Childrens Service’s due to abusive behaviour towards his partner. During assessment Z explored his relationship acknowledging elements of his behaviour he was unhappy with. Following assessment Z elected to attend ADAPT where he fully engaged with the process. During sessions Z disclosed incidents of abusive behaviour such as name calling, intimidation, and partner blaming. He explored how these behaviours impacted on his children and partner. During his second module Z admitted to initially attending as a “tick box” exercise.
He commented that “I realised that this changed very early on, where I am now is very different to where I started. It’s not a tick box exercise anymore, this makes sense and I really feel like this is helping me, you can use this in all areas of your life”.
Upon completion of ADAPT Z said, “I am so glad that I completed this programme, I didn’t want to be there at first but I’m glad I was pushed to do it. Things aren’t perfect by any means, we still argue sometimes but I have the skills to manage this better now and my partner is more open with me”.
Z’s partner identified that “he has been so much more open with me. I trust him a lot more. It sounds weird I know, I just feel more secure about his intentions now and I know where I stand with him. This programme has been good for us both, he enjoyed going and we’ve grown as a couple”.
