Chris, who used to yell, scream and emotionally torture his wife Loretta, says he sought professional help after his wife packed up her things, took their son and left. The 14-week, court-ordered "compassion and power" workshop helped Chris to see the implications of his rage.
"After about the third or fourth week, something clicked; snapped," he says. "And I started to see myself and the pain that I was causing her or the pain that she was feeling. I started to feel that within myself. And that allowed me to start to change."
