I had to re-evaluate myself, as well as my career, and that is when I came across social work.

Also, I would refer him to anger management classes to learn problem solving skills and how to communicate effectively with his family but specifically with his wife. Furthermore, for the client I would recommend also individual therapy to address her depression and to learn new coping skills to manage anxiety and reduce her depressive symptoms.

Finally, for the mother I would also recommend her to attend individual therapy to receive psychoeducation on domestic violence and to be provided with a safety plan.

One possible alternative route to the prison system could be a boarding school type system where convicts are required to participate in an educational program that gives them the knowledge and ability to be released and given the needs to go make something better of the life they have been given. This system where they are required to participate in educational training would come along side a strict rule system that would encourage them to make the decision to choose something better.
