He might have to request a referral to a specialist if his doctor is not able to find the right solution for him.
This behavior sounds like it goes above and beyond Anger Management classes and that maybe further exploration into other available treatments, i.e. medication is necessary.
All that I am saying is to not let the doctor's simple solution after a verbal interview to be the end all and be all.
It sounds like the behavior needs a second look by a medical professional. Doctors dont always catch the solution on the first try.
i highly doubt i'll be able to convince him to go back. the doctor telling him the mood swings and patterns of depression, etc. is normal. hubby is satisfied w/ the interview and diagnosis. im so frustrated. it took 5 years and a hole in the wall to get him to go to the doctor in the first place.

Mama, it's not your job to convince him to go back. It is your job to take care of yourself and your kids and keep you and the kids SAFE. The best you can do is to get out of the situation and let him know why you are getting out of the situation. Let him know that if he gets his issues resolved, that you and the kids will come back (if you will that is). Then, it is HIS job to decide if he wants to get his anger issues resolved. It is HIS job to decide if he thinks hitting kids and belittling the family is reasonable. If he doesn't see these things himself, you can't make him.
