OUTrage: A Game to Recognize and Change Abusive Behaviors

OUTrage: A Game to Recognize and Change Abusive Behaviors

ASBA member Stephanie Angelo invented this game along with Carl W. Mangold. It teaches professional staff the way domestic violence abusers and victims behave so they can recognize and change their behaviors.  That will positively affect communities for generations! They are working tirelessly to make it available to shelters, treatments centers, and therapists everywhere and have launched a crowd funding campaign to help raise marketing funds.

Why the Game Was Invented

No one deserves to be abused.  Many people, however, do not understand how subtle emotional-psychological abuse can be.  By the time victims are hit, many of them may, ironically, already believe they deserve it.

Emotional-psychological abuse almost always precedes physical abuse; however one does not have to be physically harmed to experience a lifetime of abusive manipulation and control.

The Impact

This game is designed to be played by 5 people or teams.  Most victims only share the “tip of the iceberg” with friends, family and coworkers.  This game experientially portrays the underlying realities that cause victims to be so circumspect.

Players will learn more about the dynamics of intimate partner/domestic abuse and violence in a way that is safe, challenging and, dare we say, fun!

The Challenge

Just the words, ”Domestic Violence” scare people away.  Nobody wants to deal with it.  We aim to change society!  We’re working hard to end violence one game piece, one person, one community at a time!

Other Ways You Can Help

Sometimes you just can't contribute, but that doesn't mean you can't help:

Help to get the word out and make some noise about "OUTrage".

Share the IndieGoGo Campaign with everyone you know!

And that's all there is to it.

Thank you For Your Time and Thank You in advance!
