Anger management not appropriate for those charged with Domestic Violence
Posted August 30, 2007on:
After reading the story of a man who killed his girlfriend after attending a anger management class I just had to comment once again. Anger management is not appropriate for those who are charged with or have a history of DV. As a matter of fact anger management and domestic violence are very different. All individuals who are charged with DV should be seen by those who have special training in DV. This confusion regarding DV and AM persist and as we have seem it can have deadly consequences.
All concerned should be aware that if an individual has been violent in a romantic relationship, anger management is NOT APPROPRIATE.
