ANGER ON MY MIND

My wife sent me to anger management

Posted on: April 24, 2008

I have been observing an interesting trend. In the last month I have seen many men who in order to save their marriage came to an anger management class. Initially some came just to appease their wives but for the most part these men displayed a genuine interest in changing their habits. Some struggled with cultural norms that seem to have driven them to having domineering perceptions of women, others struggled with being passive or explosive and yet others sought to build better communication skills and empathy to improve their interaction with their spouse. What note is worthy is that by the end of the class the resistance to change often goes away.     

Please note that we do not provide domestic violence interventions. DV interventions are distinct to anger management and should not be confused. Anger management is about managing a very normal emotion however DV related to power and control in intimate relationships and require other specialized interventions.
