Up2U: Creating Healthy Relationships

Up2U: Creating Healthy Relationships is a programme for people who use domestically abusive behaviours in their intimate partner relationships.

It is an assessment lead intervention programme which responds to individual need, risk and responsivity, providing tailored packages to suit the needs of the individual.

The programme recognises that people use domestically abusive behaviours for different reasons, including – power and control; learned behaviour; attitudes which promote male dominance; lack of emotional management skills and poor conflict resolution skills. Therefore, motivational interviewing techniques are used in a personalised programme to address the needs of the individual.
