  5. 6. Travelling Fellowship <ul><li>Met with NYPD </li></ul><ul><li>Researched American Models </li></ul><ul><li>Visited different organisations involved in Domestic Abuse work. </li></ul>
  6. 7. The Gourmet Dinner <ul><li>There is often a </li></ul><ul><li>gap between who </li></ul><ul><li>we want to project </li></ul><ul><li>ourselves as and </li></ul><ul><li>who we really are. </li></ul>
  7. 8. Definition of anger <ul><li>an emotional state ranging from irritation to rage that is excited by a real or imagined injury (Kopper et al 1996) </li></ul><ul><li>A feeling of great annoyance or antagonism as the result of some real or supposed grievance . (Collins 1991) </li></ul>
  8. 9. Anger Stats UK The Sunday Times Magazine - July,16 2006 <ul><li>45% of us regularly lose our temper at work. 64% of Britons working in an office have had office rage. </li></ul><ul><li>27% of nurses have been attacked at work. </li></ul><ul><li>1 in 20 of us has had a fight with the person living next door. </li></ul><ul><li>The UK has the second-worst road rage in the world, after South Africa. More than 80% of drivers say they have been involved in road rage incidents. </li></ul><ul><li>86% of secondary school teachers in South West suffered verbal abuse and 14% physical abuse </li></ul><ul><li>65% of people express anger over the phone, 26% in writing and 9% face to face. </li></ul>
  9. 10. Working with anger models <ul><li>Compassion Power Model: This model uses anger regulation instead of anger management. Anger regulation works with healing the pain underneath the anger using memory and visualisation techniques to access the underlying hurt. </li></ul><ul><li>Behaviourist approach – relies on the assumption that behaviour is learnt and can therefore be unlearnt. </li></ul><ul><li>Cognitive & Relaxation Therapy – believe that if we change our thoughts we can change the way we feel and therefore change our behaviour </li></ul>
  10. 11. Methods continued…. <ul><li>Rational Emotive Therapy – They believe that effective anger management relies on identifying, “ healthy” assertive and, “ Unhealthy,” destructive beliefs and change the unhealthy anger to creating new beliefs. </li></ul><ul><li>Psychodynamic Approach – Helped us to understand how defences and past history influence our recognition and handling of anger </li></ul><ul><li>Most anger management focuses on a way to convey to a client an understandable model of anger and its relationship to triggering thoughts, events and violent behaviour. </li></ul>
  11. 12. Domestic Abuse Statistics <ul><li>15% of all violent crime involves domestic abuse. </li></ul><ul><li>It affects 1 in 4 women, and 1 in 6 men at some point in their lives. </li></ul><ul><li>Two people are murdered every week in the context of a domestic violence situation, accounting for 35% of all murders. </li></ul><ul><li>Domestic abuse has the highest rate of repeat victimisation. </li></ul>
  12. 13. Somerset Change <ul><li>The programme is 1 night a week for 26 weeks or during the day on Saturdays for 15 weeks. Men are required to complete the whole programme and are assessed to determine motivation and suitability. This is a voluntary programme which requires commitment. </li></ul>
  13. 14. What does the programme include? <ul><li>Physical Abuse </li></ul><ul><li>Emotional Abuse </li></ul><ul><li>Intimacy Abuse </li></ul><ul><li>Children and Domestic Violence </li></ul><ul><li>Rebuilding Trust and Respect </li></ul><ul><li>Each module explores the subject, looks at the victim perspective and teaches theory, applying this to the men’s own experiences. </li></ul>
  14. 15. American Domestic Abuse Models <ul><li>The Duluth Model is a &quot;blame and shame&quot; behaviour modification approach, focusing only on the perpetrator's role. </li></ul><ul><li>The model was developed, not by a team of psychologists and research scientists, but in consultation with &quot;a small group of activists in the battered women's movement,&quot; and &quot;more than 200 battered women in Duluth. </li></ul>
  15. 16. New Leaf – Anger work <ul><li>Individual sessions </li></ul><ul><li>Blocks of 10 on a weekly basis </li></ul><ul><li>Voluntary attendance </li></ul><ul><li>Adults only </li></ul><ul><li>Holistic model </li></ul>
  16. 17. Non expressed anger <ul><li>Use of Metaphors </li></ul><ul><li>Short fuse </li></ul><ul><li>Hot under the collar </li></ul><ul><li>Seeing red </li></ul><ul><li>Let off steam </li></ul><ul><li>Venting your spleen </li></ul>
  17. 18. Underlying Anger <ul><li>Anger </li></ul><ul><li>Hurt </li></ul><ul><li>Needs </li></ul><ul><li>Fear </li></ul><ul><li>Think of something that makes you angry. </li></ul><ul><li>What is hurting in that person? </li></ul><ul><li>What is it that they need? </li></ul><ul><li>What is it that they fear? </li></ul>
  18. 19. Awareness <ul><li>Process as a way of bringing awareness to an emotion like anger this is a way of making something conscious. When the transformation begins you can redeem the anger. </li></ul><ul><li>To redeem – to re- light an internal aspect of ourselves. </li></ul>
  19. 20. Anger Hurt Needs Fears <ul><li>Anger and hurt are often two sides </li></ul><ul><li>of the same coin. Its is an important </li></ul><ul><li>step in facing the anger of </li></ul><ul><li>others to know what lies beneath </li></ul><ul><li>our own anger. </li></ul><ul><li>This exercise is a way of discovering some of the hurt, needs </li></ul><ul><li>and fears underlying a personal experience of anger. ( either </li></ul><ul><li>our own or others)we can start to address those fears rather </li></ul><ul><li>than be caught in the outward emotion. </li></ul>
  20. 21. Why are we angry? <ul><li>I see many people feeling disconnected to themselves and each other. This causes internal anger, depression and a tendency to objectify people externally and individuals feeling separate to themselves and society. </li></ul><ul><li>I see a society that is becoming fragmented, wanting immediate gratification and getting angry if this need is not satisfied. </li></ul>
  21. 23. Brain
  22. 24. Relaxation Techniques <ul><li>The use of relaxation techniques is usually aimed at reducing a client’s physiological arousal state. This would aim to dampen the sympathetic nervous system in situations of anger arousal. I mainly use meditation </li></ul>
