It's been awhile since our last upDAYte.  We've been busy delivering Building Your Compass training about gender identity (you can find out more about the training HERE) and uploading new videos to the DAY Hub.

The Own My Life Course

Over the last few years, Natalie Collins (the Creator and Director of the DAY Programme) has been developing a course for women who have been subjected to male violence.  This course is now written and is due to be piloted in 2019, with free training available to practitioners in 2020!  You can find out more on the course website HERE.  Scroll to the bottom of the page to sign up for updates on the course as it progresses. 

Book and Conference

Natalie Collins' has finally written a book!  It will be published in March 2019 with SPCK and is entitled "Out Of Control; Couples, Conflict and the Capacity for Change".  It has been written primarily for a faith audience, but is accessible to anyone interested in male violence.  You can sign up to get updates about the book HERE.  To celebrate the book launching she is organising a conference in London on 23rd March 2019.  This is the flyer for the conference, and you can find out more HERE.

Booking DAY Training

If you or your organisation would be interested in booking DAY Programme Session Leader training, please email for more information.  It is a 3 day training event that previous training participants have described as "incredibly worthwhile and informative" and "the best training I have ever been on!".
