struggle.with.anger ...Some.join.the.program.because.they.are.struggling.with.anger.in.their.
relationships.and.want.help ..Others.may.participate.because.they.are.court-ordered.to.attend ...

attendance.reports.sent.to.their.case.worker ...Groups.meet.once.a.week.in.a.variety.of.metro.
locations ..
