The program provides a structured rotating curriculum on three main topics:
Alternatives to the Violent Expression of Anger
These topics were chosen due to their identification as problem areas in the cycle of
violence and anger management issues. Group materials, tools, and discussion are
directed to persons dealing with their own anger, as well as persons in a relationship
dealing with their partner's anger and/or violence. The discussion and feedback between
these groups is important to the process of the program. The group meets for 90
minutes each session, with approximately one-third of the session devoted to the
presentation of information and materials in one of the three topic areas previously
mentioned, followed by processing of the information and group discussion regarding the
role or impact of the current topic in the incident(s) for which they were referred to the
program and/or in their current situations. The information and materials presented by the
counselor and incorporated in hand-outs constitute a revolving format. This way, we
provide a thorough and uniform body of information to all participants. Enrollment in the
program is open. Therefore, participants may enroll at any time.
