C. Brown & The How Not to Beat Women Booklet

10/18/2009 2:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown has a lot to learn in his 52 hours of court-ordered domestic violence counseling -- but if it gets too overwhelming, at least now he'll know how to keep a cool head with the use of a proper "time-out."

Chris Brown Domestic Violence Booklet

TMZ obtained the booklet for Brown's Domestic Violence Awareness Group, which is spearheaded by Commonwealth Catholic Charities in Richmond, Virginia.

The book is full of tips to help Chris learn how not to throw temper tantrums -- including "Time-Out Rules," and the benefits of "deep breathing," "backward counting," and "pleasant imagery."

The booklet also has chapters on all the big no-nos:

- Using Intimidation
- Using Emotional Abuse
- Using Isolation
- Using Male Privilege
- Using Coercion & Threats

When it all comes down to it, Brown just has to remember his ABCs ... as in his Anger button, Behavior and Consequences.

Chris can do "deep breathing" and "armpit farts", but nothing will stop him from meeting/dating crazy women except a little willpower.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month! Please do not minimize or trivialize the domestic violence handout by making it gossip news. Chris Brown is a batterer in every since of the word. Perhaps he will learn something in his 52-week training. Most batterers continue to abuse after these types of training. Many of the sessions become victim-bashing sessions. Just be aware TMZ and maybe mention the significance of the month!

Wouldn't the title "How Not To Be A Typical Black Man" be a more accurate name for the booklet?

Just sayin'.....

You wrong TMZ, what about xeroxing copies of that damn book and handing it out to the many white folks you pamper on here who have been involved in domestic violence including your staff Harvey, leave Chris alone and go after Rhianna's stupid azz.

I wonder if the book says anything like, "Don't be a damn player if you expect to have a life free of drama and trauma. Don't beat up your woman when she gets in your face about your girlfriends, because this is the root cause of virtually all Domestic Violence."

That's why Brown beat up Rhianna in the first place. She got in his face about his cheating on her with other women.

For Rhianna's part, if she wants a one-to-one relationship she should find a good honest Man who won't cheat on her. Getting beat is what happens when you try to have an honest relationship with a lying little player like Chris Brown.
