Violence Part 3

When we look at anger and what causes it we find the heart of man is desperately wicked. Many times this anger leads to Domestic abuse and we need to be alert to the Signs & Symptoms.

Domestic violence takes many forms. The most commonly reported form of domestic violence is physical assault, which includes punching, kicking, grabbing, slapping, choking, poking, pulling hair, twisting arms, biting, beating and using a weapon. Intimidation is another form of domestic violence, and it may include scaring the abused person with looks, actions, gestures, yelling, or smashing things. Abusers also may threaten to kill their partners, take away children or commit suicide.

Emotional abuse is also considered domestic violence. This involves putting people down by calling them names, making them feel like they are crazy, treating them like servants. Another element is isolation, in which abusers isolate their partner from people who are important to them. The abuser also may control all the finances and try to prevent the partner from getting or keeping a job.

4. ANGER 

Here are some ways to deal with anger without resorting to violence:

*   Learn to talk about your feelings - if you're afraid to talk or if you can't find the right words to describe what you're going through, find a trusted friend or adult to help you one-on-one.

*   Express yourself calmly - express criticism, disappointment, anger or displeasure without losing your temper or fighting. Ask yourself if your response is safe and reasonable.

*   Listen to others - listen carefully and respond without getting upset when someone gives you negative feedback. Ask yourself if you can really see the other person's point of view.

*   Negotiate - work out your problems with someone else by looking at alternative solutions and compromises.

Anger is part of life, but you can free yourself from the cycle of violence by learning to talk about your feelings. Be strong. Be safe. Be cool.

We are living in a world of violence and terror and it is very important to understand what causes us to become angry and violent.

It is very normal to become angry but what do we do with that anger?

We many times think we have a right to become violent, but as we look at the REASONS FOR VIOLENCE what do we really see?Here is one of the courses I teach at the Restitution Center with using the Bible as a text book. But note how basic this teaching is and how it can be used to correct any lack of conscience we need to have freedom in our world today. We should never forget, it is not my truth, but Gods truth that give us the victory again and again over our tendencey for violence.

Violence. It's the act of purposefully hurting someone. And it's a major issue facing today's young adults. One in 12 high schoolers is threatened or injured with a weapon each year. If you're between the ages of 12 and 24, you face the highest risk of being the victim of violence.

At the same time, statistics show that by the early 1990's the incidence of violence caused by young people reached unparalleled levels in American society.

There is no single explanation for the overall rise in youth violence. Many different factors cause violent behavior. The more these factors are present in your life, the more likely you are to commit an act of violence.
