In addition to the tactics, the discussion concerns the use of the "Control Log" which can be a tool used by abusers to analyze their own individual use of the tactics.

After talking about the tactics and the Control Log, vignettes from the Duluth Model curriculum and scenes from appropriate movies will be shown. The group will have the opportunity to analyze each scene with the Control Log.
