Taking a Domestic Violence Online Course? What to Do if Your Partner Leaves You

man sitting on a windowsill looking  out of window
You have been ordered by a judge to take domestic violence courses – now what? Your most immediate reaction is probably anger or frustration. Deep down, you know why you are being ordered to take a domestic violence online course, but it’s still hard to deal with emotionally. You may also be dealing with a loss of your partner.  This can feel like the end of the world, but there are some things you need to do to come to terms with your partner leaving you in the wake of your court proceedings.
Understand How Your Actions Hurt Them
One of the most important ways to cope with the loss of your significant other is self-examination. Your actions hurt them deeply, whether it was emotionally, physically, or both. Your partner saw the opportunity to escape an abusive situation, and they took it. It can be hard for you to assign the blame to yourself, but you need to accept it if you want to move on from this. Blaming your significant other for your problems is most likely why you have come to this point in the first place, so it is time to let go and realize where the true blame lies.
Work on Becoming a Better Person
Completing a domestic violence course cannot bring your significant other back into your life. They may decide to return, but often it is better to sever ties completely to avoid falling into the same cycle of abuse that led you to this point in your life. What you need to do now is focus on yourself. Look at the situation and think to yourself: how can I become a better person? Do everything you can to absorb the lessons in your course and use your new knowledge to shape your new life.
Turn Over a New Leaf

Putting all of your effort into your domestic violence course can lead to a new lease on life. You may find it easier to maintain relationships in the future, and you may even be able to have healthy romantic relationships. If you can truly let go of your partner and put your heart and soul into unlearning bad habits, you can move on to a better, happier, healthier life.

What You Will Learn in a Court Ordered Parenting Course

father and daughter coloring
Custody battles are never fun, but now, on top of your impending divorce, the judge has ordered you and your spouse to go through court ordered parenting courses. You can choose to see this as an annoyance, but both you and your children can greatly benefit from taking a court-approved parenting course through AIC. American Integrity Courses. Visitation and custody rights may be limited if you do not complete the required coursework, so it is very important that you get the most out of the course. You will learn important parenting skills, including:
Discipline without Anger
Developing age-appropriate discipline does not come easily to every parent. More difficult still is learning to keep anger out of discipline. Anger-driven punishment does not help your children develop, and can lead to a strained and difficult relationship between you and your children. A parenting course can help you develop the skills necessary to discipline your children in healthy ways.
How to Recognize Your Strengths
These courses are not just about correcting unhealthy parenting methods – they are also about recognizing the things you do well as a parent. Learning to recognize your strengths will help you parent more confidently. Your children will recognize your confidence, and in turn, will respond better to you as a parent.

Co-parenting is the most important thing to do for your children after a divorce. Your kids need to have both parents present in their lives. Working with your ex-spouse to parent can be difficult if things did not end amicably, but it is a skill you must learn. Keeping lines of communication open between you and your ex is important for raising healthy children.

Tips for Coping with Stress at Work, Pt. 2

man with three heads, stress, juggling life and work
In our last post, we discussed three ways to cope with stress at work without blowing a gasket. If you are taking anger management courses, or have been ordered by a judge to take them, it’s important that you learn some coping mechanisms to keep your anger at bay. One of the most important ways you can keep anger in check is to carefully manage stress. You can’t avoid it, but these tips can help you prevent it from building up and causing you mental and physical harm.
Make Time for Yourself
If you’re feeling burnt out, it’s because you aren’t taking enough time for yourself. You are pouring all of your energy into work and it is draining your nerves and reducing your ability to restrain your anger. When you are home, avoid looking at work emails. Don’t think about work, don’t talk about work, just enjoy your time at home. It is 100% okay to veg out a little if work is getting you too worked up. If it helps, turn off your smartphone and get involved in other activities like reading or watching your favorite movies.
Learn Relaxation Techniques
Learning how to meditate and perform breathing exercises when stressed can do wonders for your anger management issues. Whenever you feel stressed, take a deep breath and observe the situation as if from an outside perspective. Take a walk, or focusing on enjoying your meal rather than working straight through lunch. Learning how to relax while you are at work is a very important skill.
Speak with Your Supervisor
If you feel that you are having an especially difficult time managing stress at the office –speak to your supervisor. Your boss has an obligation to keep their employees productive, which means keeping them healthy. This is not to complain about the job; your supervisor can help you devise a plan for managing stress at the work place.

Tips for Coping with Stress at Work, Pt. 1

stressed out woman
Work-related stress is practically unavoidable these days. Unfortunately, long-term stress can have severe impact on your physical and emotional health. If you struggle with anger management issues, it can be even more difficult for you. If you are currently taking online anger management courses through AIC. American Integrity Courses, or you have been recently ordered by a judge to take these course, these tips on dealing with workplace stress can be a great supplement.
Keep Track
Journaling can be a great stress-reliever by itself, but keeping track of the things that stress you out is important. Carefully observe which specific things are causing stress and anger responses and write them down. Go back to them later when you are feeling calm and try to determine how you can best deal with each stressor. Be as detailed as possible with your notes – where were you, who was involved, what was going on, and how did you react? This will help you identify patterns.
Develop Healthier Stress Responses
Once you know what is stressing you out, come up with healthier ways to deal with that stress. Exercise can be a great way to relieve stress. When you feel the anger coming on, take a quick walk around the office. Keeping a stress ball or other type of object that you can fidget with while you work can also help. One of the most important ways to keep stress down is to establish healthy sleep patterns.
Create Clear Boundaries
When work stress follows you home, it can create long-term mental and physical health problems. In today’s world, we are more connected than ever – which can make it difficult to separate work life and home life. It’s important to create clear boundaries between work and home. Use your vacation days, don’t check work email from home, and try to find hobbies that take your mind off of work when you’re not on the clock. This separation will help you recharge and perhaps you will go into work each day feeling a bit more optimistic.

In our next post, we’ll talk about three more healthy ways that you can cope with stress at the office.

Tips for Defusing a Fight with Your Significant Other

couple yelling at each other
No one wants to fight with their significant other, but a fight can still happen. Sometimes, in the heat of the moment, we let things get out of hand, and something trivial escalates into a huge shouting match. The best thing to do in these situations is defuse the fight before it gets out of control and you start saying things you will regret later. Here are some tips you can use to defuse a fight with your partner:
Deep Breaths
When you feel yourself getting heated, and your heart accelerated, stop and take a few deep breaths. This will calm you down so that you can continue the discussion more calmly.
Put yourself in your partner’s shoes. Consider how they feel about the situation. This can help you see the argument from a different perspective, and open your mind to compromise.
Hug It Out
Physical contact can help you remember the affection you feel for one another so that you can calmly and rationally discuss the issue without hurting the other person.
Listen, Repeat
Listen carefully to the other person’s side of the argument, and then repeat it back to them in your own words. This lets them know that you are listening to them. Sometimes arguments get heated because neither one of you feels like the other one is paying attention to what they actually have to say. This can also help both of you find the clarity in the situation.
Make a Pros and Cons List
Sit down with your significant other and make a pros and cons chart of both sides of the argument. Then, try to work out a solution that meets both of your needs.

Better Safe Than Sorry – Tips for a Night Out

2 women posing for a photo in a bar
A night out with friends can be a great experience, but if you aren’t careful things can go south very quickly – especially if there is drinking involved. Drinking in moderation is fine, but even a small amount of alcohol can impair your judgment and motor skills. That’s why it’s important to have a plan in place before you go out. Here are a few safety tips that are essential for staying safe during a night out.
Designate a Driver
You should always designate one person to stay sober and help the rest of the group get home safely. Even if you plan on using a cab, Uber, or public transportation, you should always have one sober person to help shepherd everyone to where they need to go. This person should also help you and your friends avoid dangerous situations.
Watch Your Drink
Never let your drink out of your sight. If you need to use the bathroom, give it to your designated driver to watch. Someone could slip something into your drink without you knowing, which can lead to a very dangerous situation.
Have an Exit Strategy
It’s important to have the number of the nearest taxi company saved in your phone. If you don’t want to take a cab, have the app for either Uber or Lyft installed on your phone. This way, you can always get a ride. It’s very important that you never attempt to drive when you have been out drinking.
Limit Your Drinking
It takes an adult about one hour to process one standard size drink. Consuming one single drink per hour and drinking plenty of water in between will ensure that you do not go overboard. This doesn’t ensure that you’ll be able to drive, but it should prevent a blackout and a nasty hangover.

What to Do When Your Partner is Ordered to Take Anger Management Courses, Pt. 2

court ordered anger management courses
In our last post, we covered some general tips that you can use to help your partner as they complete their court ordered anger management courses. In this post, we’ll go over some more ways that you can help them become a better person through their courses.
Reflecting on your own behavior does not mean blaming yourself for your partner’s anger. It is an important tool when it comes to helping your partner manage your anger. Think about whether or not you do anything to escalate arguments, or if you try to resolve them. This could be a chance for both of you to improve your role in the relationship and come out of this experience stronger.
Pick Your Battles
Exercise restraint when it comes to your differences. Every single couple has a million things that they can fight about, but it’s important to figure out what is worth the time and energy, and what you can let go. Your partner will be learning this in their courses as well.
Bide Your Time
When your partner is angry, they are not thinking straight. If you have an issue that needs to be addressed, try to bring it up when your partner is calm and has the ability to discuss the problem rationally. This will help them learn to communicate without anger.
Be a Cheerleader
Let them know that you appreciate their efforts to get better. If they are doing well in their courses, tell them you are proud of them. If they hear encouragement from the person they love, they will make an even stronger effort to manage their anger and excel in their court ordered classes.

Your partner is not in this alone. With your help, they can complete their anger management courses, become a better person, and be better able to build their future with you.

What to Do When Your Partner is Ordered to Take Anger Management Courses, Pt. 1

couple hugging in a field
When your partner has anger management issues, it can affect your relationship in a million different ways. You may feel like you have to walk on eggshells around them to prevent provoking their anger. There are times when you may even feel that their angry outbursts are your fault, even if they were triggered by another stressor in their lives.
Anger problems within a relationship can cause serious strain. It may even end up ruining the relationship. If your partner is ordered by a judge to take anger management courses, it may be the one thing you needed to save the relationship.  But you may be wondering, “How can I support them while they take online anger management courses?”
Stay Calm
When your partner becomes angry, the most important thing for you to do is remain calm. Answering their anger with more anger will only exacerbate the situation. As your partner goes through their classes, they will be learning ways to manage their anger. If you remain calm, the anger will subside much more quickly. If you unknowingly create additional turbulence at home, it could throw them off-track.
Practice Constructive Communication
Sometimes your partner may react angrily if they think you aren’t listening to them, or appreciating them. That’s where effective communication comes in. Listen carefully to what they are saying, and then respond in a way that shows you listened and understood. Sometimes simply validating their emotions is enough to calm them down. Try to understand what they need and communicate it back to them so that they know you heard. This encourages them to tell you how they feel in a calmer manner the next time there is an issue.

These are just a few tips you can use to help your partner as they go through court ordered anger management courses.

Why Taking a Divorce and Co-Parenting Course Online is Good for Your Children

When going through a contentious divorce, the last thing you want is to have to spend even more time with your ex-spouse. If the judge ordered you to take a divorce and co-parenting course, you may feel like it’s meant as a punishment – but it isn’t. It may be stressful at times, and you may not want to do it, but in the end it will benefit your children. After all, your kids matter the most to you, so you want to do everything to can to provide them with a good future. Court ordered divorce and co-parenting courses have many benefits for your kids, including:

Modeling Healthy Relationships
Now you may be thinking, ‘How is my divorce modeling healthy relationships for my kids?’ While it is true that your relationship failed, learning to co-parent will show your kids that breaking up doesn’t mean that you can’t interact civilly. You may not have a romantic relationship anymore, but if you have young children you need to form a co-parenting partnership that your kids can look up to. It’s important that you learn to control your feelings towards one another so that your kids do not see the strain in the relationship.

If you can learn to successfully co-parent, you may also avoid psychological damage. Kids who are products of messy divorces often think that they are at fault for the failure of your relationship. Successful co-parenting shows them that you can work together to make sure that they are taken care of, which is very reassuring to a child.

Showing them How to Mediate Arguments
Depending on their age, they may know that you and your spouse are not on good terms. By learning to co-parent successfully, you can show your kids that it is possible to work with people you may not like. Those lessons will benefit them later in life at school and work.
