Teaching Casino men how to talk to each other

Skilled Mates, an innovative program aimed at assisting men to be better communicators within their own network, will be coming to Casino, with the first class starting Tuesday, February 20, at 9.30am.

An initiative of the Men and Family Centre in Lismore, Skilled Mates will provide local men with a training opportunity aimed at increasing communication and conflict resolution skills, as well as knowledge about domestic and family violence.

The underlying aim of the program is to improve the communitys response to situations of violence by training men to work within their own networks to raise awareness and to provide appropriate referrals.

The Casino course will be facilitated by Bill Taylor, coordinator of the Mobile Mens Shed, and Ron Davis, coordinator of Mensline Northern Rivers. Both believe that men who participate in this type of training benefit in many ways including building their own self-esteem and learning how to support and help other men facing difficult issues.

For more information contact Bill Taylor or Ron Davis on 6622 6116.
