Anger Management - Brad Barris, Ph.D.
Dr. Barris recommends a type of treatment for anger management closely related to cognitive behavior therapy. He describes his theories on the causes of anger and presents his model of treatment.
Overview to Domestic Violence - Rochelle Hanson, Ph.D.
Dr. Hanson defines domestic violence as involving a broad spectrum of abusive behavior and discusses the phases in the cycle of violence. Because many battered women are ashamed to admit they are being hurt, Dr. Hanson recommends a number of "red flags" the clinician should look for. Dr. Hanson also presents the primary goals of treatment for a battered woman and the steps in a treatment plan.
“The programs and format are simply excellent, to the point, and informative.”
