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.

TMZ could have just skipped this, there is nothing to make fun of when it comes to beating women or GETTING HELP For it, so now TMZ can only blame themselves for men now not wanting help because people make fun of others for getting help????

Chris I am a 66 year old man who beat up a girl I loved very much over 45 years ago. I was from a home of verbal and physical violence, not something that was a every day event, but it hurt. Well 45 years later I cannot get rid of that memory, I have been in all kinds of therapy. I lived in NY all of my life until I retired and moved down here to Florida. After some time moving down here I started to have dreams about that woman and the incident, and sometimes when I woke up I was in pain like it happened the night before. I would cry again like I did when it first happened. I can identy with you, I did not mean do this to this girl, she was a beautiful girl and we both loved each other very much. We tried to get back together after someime but it just did not work.I am not trying to say this will happen to you. But I was 21 or 22 at the time. I did not think of any kind of therapy other then drinking. So I was never really dealing with the reality of the situation like I should have. At this time in my life I will be sober 32 years come December 4, 2009. I have worked the steps I have shared this openly in meetings and with many therapist. You do have something that I hope will help you more then it helped me, that's money. Buy the very best help you can. You don't want to be haunted like I have been all of my life. Do the right thing and right things will come your way.
Good luck and God will forgive you. It's you who has to forgive himself, and apologize to her.

Bye Chris.
