Lyömätön Linja | English

Lyömätön Linja provides specialist services for men with intimate partner and family violence issues.

Our clients can be any men that have used psychological or physical violence towards the person they are in a relationship with, spouse, own child or other person close to them, as well as those men who fear using violence or want to assess their own and their family’s need for help.

The aim is that the client will better understand his own actions, the background issues affecting them as well as learning to realise the alternative forms of action to violent behaviour.

Types of work are individual meetings face to face or via video, that can be supplemented with pair meetings and group meetings.

As well as client work, we offer consultations and training.
