The Violence Cycle

The anger, abuse and violence cycle goes something like this:

Anger Management Strategies

It is up to you to de-escalate the anger disorder and abuse cycle dynamics. Use simple anger management techniques to stay balanced and reasonable, such as -

  1. Stop blaming others.
  2. Accept your angry feeling as an emotion telling you that something is wrong.
  3. Use self control early on. 
  4. Use calming techniques when you feel your anger begin to escalate.
  5. Using violence, abusive language or threats are unacceptable.
  6. Take a time out.
  7. Consider the consequence of your actions, both now and later.
  8. Be honest.
  9. Be specific on what you feel the real problem is.
  10. Don’t get into a power struggle and maintain dignity for everyone.
    Be fair and generous. Deep listening works wonders.
