Anger Management treatment requires more than just a series of techniques to help the client control his or her behavior. It is important to explore the origins of the triggers, the prior experiences that may have led to a learned fight response in reaction to any perceived threat. It is also important to explore and trace what models of behavior are currently available to the client and expand on those options

One of the most common patterns before domestic violence is the occurrence of the pursue-withdrawal interaction effect: She pursues because she wants to connect with him; he withdraws because he doesn't want to fight. The more she pursues, the more he withdraws to avoid conflict. The more he withdraws, the more she feels disconnect. Unbeknownst to her, his heart is starting to race and he's getting more and more upset and she has no idea and then BOOM! Look. He's still responsible for blowing up, but there's no sense both of us heading down this road. I teach couples to work together on their differences and to communicate in a way that can be heard.
