How To Effectively Control Your Anger
Anger Management has become highly publicized, and statistics show that one of the most insidious forms of violence, domestic violence, is on the rise, and the old adage that you hurt the ones you love proves, all too often, to be true. Men commit 95% of all violent crimes.
Domestic violence is the top cause of emergency room visits by women. During the Vietnam
War, more women were murdered at home than men killed on the battlefield.
Just like anger management is a learned behavior, so are the cycles of violence that define
domestic violence in all its forms. Abuse of marital, or life partners, has seen a steady increase in all socioeconomic statuses of people everywhere.
Child abuse has escalated steadily over the years, and more and more angry parents are in counseling with equally angry, out of control children. It seems clear that better methods of communicating, dealing with the most intimate of interpersonal relationships, and productive methods of anger management are vital in today’s world.
Whether you blame violence on television, in movies, in video games, or within the families
themselves, everyone realizes some proactive steps need to be taken to stop the cycle of
violence, and teaching good anger management techniques seems to be the most popular
choice to accomplish that task.
Domestic violence often has its root in men with low selfesteem, who over react to imagined wrongs and rejections, and is most prevalent in homes of young, unskilled males, who are substance abusers.
It is never right for anyone to be abused. Many female victims of spousal abuse are often coerced into believing they are to blame for the violence against them, but nobody deserves to be abused.
Everyone deserves to live and be safe, and any victim of domestic violence should seek legal and professional help centered in positive anger management techniques.
