Programmes for behaviours

There are two Blueprint programs, one for women another for men. Blueprint is an intervention program, for use where individuals of either gender are displaying abusive behaviours in the family setting. These abusive behaviours could be physical, mental or emotional in nature.

We focus on ‘abusive behaviours’, rather than someone being an ‘abuser’, for a couple of reasons. This shift in focus acknowledges that the issue is with these abusive behaviours, and the underpinning belief and attitudes, as much as the abuse per se.

Also if we define a person as ‘abusive’, with the inference of it being at best a character trait and at worse a gender or genetic trait e.g. abusive male, then experience has shown that there is far less engagement with professionals. This helps no one. Whereas while still holding the person fully accountable and responsible for their abusive behaviours, we can begin to separate the behaviour from the person and with help and support, this behaviour can be changed.

This leads to a fuller and more genuine engagement, which increases safety for everyone involved, and is in fact, far closer to the reality of the dynamics of abusive behaviour within the family setting. By shifting the focus from the abuser/victim dichotomy, Blueprint flows into a more Restorative Approach to abusive behaviour, and works much more organically with dynamics of the family setting.

The male program has been successfully facilitated for several years in the Vale of Glamorgan, Cardiff and Llanelli for Parc Prison, Flying Start, Social Services. Some feedback from those attending includes:

He says it changed his life.”

“It helped massively,” he says. “It inspired me to change. I was an angry person and the course has made me a whole lot more positive. It was a light at the end of the tunnel. For the first time I realised I can change. I don’t have to always be like this.”

“I have been in prison five times. This is an opportunity. I’ve gone along to a group voluntarily and it has changed me. I was heading in the direction where I thought I would spend the rest of my life in and out of custody. I spent so many years messing up and finally this is an opportunity to do something about it, I want this to be my life.”

Blueprint will run in Cardiff for 16 weeks, the male group running on Mondays beginning on the 30th January and the female group running on  Fridays beginning on the 3rd February. Professionals can refer individuals they work with to the programme or ask for more information by emailing tammi&

Blueprint offers 2 programmes for professionals wishing to work with or work more effectively with men or women, who are living with, or have lived with, abuse from their partner.  You may be a professional who works with families, you may be working in a supportive role with an individual within a family and want to develop more awareness on how to engage men or women  to address their own personal issues. 


Blueprint also offers 2 programmes for individual men and women who want to become more aware of their situation and develop tools and techniques to help themselves and move on if they wish to after living with abuse from current or past partner.


These programmes can be used together in a supported environment between a professional and an individual if they wish to do so, to support each other and encourage open communication and learning from both sides on impact on living with abuse and how professionals can support you in your choices and become more aware of what help and support is available.
