Preventing anger from escalating in the first place is a start.

 

A local non-profit group called "Winning Against Anger and Violence" has been trying to do that for 25 years in central Oregon.

 

The group's director, Karen Hobbs says they try to reach people with anger issues before things escalate into violent acts.

 

"But that's the end of the road for them.  I hear what you're saying, we're seeing a kind of Rambo act.  What about reaching these people before they act out.  That's what concerns Winning, getting these people who need help, the extra help they need.  We can teach them to make different choices."

 

"Winning Against Anger and Violence" offers counseling to adults and chidlren dealing with anger issues.  Some are mandated by the courts and others are self referred.  The group is specifically reaching out in area schools working alongside school counselors to help students deal with their anger and make better choices.
