After "Protection against violence" law has taken effect in 2011 December 15 Marijampolė County Women's activity Center, together with other 16 organizations in Lithuania is carring out Specialized support center function. This center staff provides comprehensive assistance to victims of violence (or have seen, heard violence), no matter what gender they are. There are reports of not only violent men, but also about violent sons, brothers, grandchildrens(male), grandparents and less frequently about violent wives, daughters, sisters or even grandchildrens(female).
There are punishments for domestic violence and one of them may be Court judgment to change violent behavior during an activity in specific programs. One of the Marijampolė county Men's Crisis center's activity is to carry out violent change programs.
We suggest not to wait until violent behavior modification program will be ordered by Court judgment, but to apply themselves personally to people who are unable to manage their emotions.
"Every one of us are surviving crisis - bigger ones or smaller ones. At difficult moments we are looking for someone to lean to, where to gain strength or to get wise advice. Sometimes when it hurts for a person, he/she feels lonely. Sometimes he/she is angry, aggressive, have fears and addictions. We - men would like to solve these problems ourselves without involving and making difficulties to others, but.... In life and work I communicate a lot with men and I notice that not only just one men got away from difficult situation only when he found with whom to share his onus, received help". These are words of Remigijus Bimba - personal trainer, Lithuania bodybuilding and fitness federation President of the Jury, Vilnius Bodybuilding and Fitness Clubs Secretary General. Read more into these words. ("Help for men and their family members").
Men's Crisis and Information Center specialists say that men are violent because of desperation, being unable to show their importance in other ways. They think that violence can be treated as an aspiration to leadership or control the situation, avoiding to show their weakness, helplessness.
