I don’t think I have an anger problem why am I being told I have to go to anger management?

It’s not that you have a problem with your anger. It’s that we have displayed our anger in ways that are not healthy towards others or ourselves. We all have anger, it’s how we let our anger out that can sometimes be unhealthy and/or damaging. Anger management is built to help us find better ways to displace our anger. 

Domestic violence? I have never hit or hurt anyone. Why do I have to take these classes?

These classes are for learning not just about domestic violence but also healthy relationships, communication, anger management, and self regulation.
