Domestic violence is an issue that affects millions of people in the United States. It occurs in all communities and to people of all races, religions, genders, and ages. It is important to be educated on what constitutes domestic violence, the problems associated with it, and how it can be stopped. This course will help both abusers and the abused to gain a better understanding of domestic violence, and learn how to take action against it.
Domestic violence can be defined as a pattern of abusive, controlling, or coercive behavior used by one partner to exert power or control over another in an intimate relationship. The term “intimate relationship” refers not only to dating partnerships and marriage, but also to relationships with either biological or non-biological parents, children, siblings, and extended family members. When you hear the term “domestic violence,” physical violence is usually the first thing that comes to mind. However, domestic violence can also be sexual, emotional, psychological or economic. Domestic violence includes behaviors that hurt, injure, intimidate, control, threaten, manipulate, isolate, or humiliate another person. Here are some common signs and behaviors of the different types of abuse:
Everyone’s experience with domestic violence is different. Although abusive behavior can often leave noticeable physical effects, other times, it may not leave a trace. It can happen frequently, or only once. However, inflicting or experiencing any of these abusive behaviors can constitute an abusive relationship.

The course material was great. I found it useful and frequently utilized and reflected on the course material during the day. The bottom line is the course clearly helped me, genuinely helped me, with the emotional struggles I had been experiencing. My supervisor and one of the employees I supervised myself both commented to me without prompting that I was dealing with work issues in a more balanced, open-minded manner.
I am very pleased with the courses you offer. The Anger Management course has literally changed my life for the better. I now know how to control my inner and outer anger and think before I act or speak. Thank you for having these courses to follow and revisit whenever I need a refresher.
I never write reviews, but I feel obligated to because of how much Open Path's Anger Management course has helped me to understand myself. I also never use the word "blessing," but I feel that the word pretty much describes what OP has done by making these resources available at such a low cost. I continue to use the tips I've learned every day and I try to help others with when I can. It has changed my life and my relationships.
