I opened my email and saw this article.

Don’t despair, understanding the three stages of learning.

I would say that my hubby is on step one or two. He recognizes that he is verbally abusive. Before he said that I was “too sensitive.”

But our educators would take issue with the example in this story where the woman recognizes she is angry and should walk away.  Our educators or our group leaders say this is why “anger management” doesn’t work. Walking away doesn’t stop the anger. You are still angry and it stops communication with the other person. You need to stop the false beliefs that cause you to get so inappropriately angry in the first place.
