The score of anger management skills, as well as the prevalence exposure to violence were compared between two equal groups of 44 married woman with exposure to violence, without any interventions (control group), and with 4 sessions of training anger management skills (interventional group). Before and 3 month after training, anger management skills questionnaire and Iranian violence screening checklist were completed for both groups. Data were analyzed using analytical tests such as chi-square, t, and paired t, via SPSS software.Findings: Both groups were similar in age and exposure to violence (P = 0.530). The score of anger management skills before the training was 24.75 ± 9.92 and 23.25 ± 9.47 in interventional and control groups, respectively (P = 0.470). After training, the score became 31.30 ± 6.48 and 23.34 ± 8.72 in interventional and control groups, respectively (P < 0.001).
