The crime of killing and wounding is a crime that requires more strength and courage than other crimes. There are many reasons for this crime, mainly psychological and social. Looking at these crime rates, it is seen that in recent years there has been an increase in the number of women convicted of these crimes, even though women commit fewer murders or injuries less than men. Researches on the crime of women in our country are very limited. These studies mostly focus on demographic data of women, sociocultural and economic factors that push women to shame. When women are thought to have committed a serious crime such as manslaughter or bruising, often without planning, it can be said that the main reason for leading them to this suicide is lack of anger control. The aim of this research is therefore to examine the effect of anger control group work on the anger control ability of women convicted of murder or wounding. Group members consist of women convicted of manslaughter or wounding, aged between 20 and 43 years. Five female convicts participated in the study. The group work lasted 8 weeks. Pre-test post-test was applied to the Continuous Anger-Anger Expression Style Scale, which was adapted to Turkish by Özer (1994). As a result of the research, it was found that there was a significant difference between pre-test and post-test scores of female prisoners, continuous anger level (p <0,05). Accordingly, it is thought that anger control group work has left the anger control of female prisoners in a positive and permanent way. It is thought that women who are given anger control education for female prisoners within the scope of judicial social service practice in prisons in the direction of this obtained result will prevent the repetitive criminalization of women. In addition, it is thought that working with women towards anger control at the Violence Prevention and Monitoring Centers in the Department of Family and Social Policies (MCH) will reduce the number of women who commit crimes against manslaughter and injuries, especially when women who are subjected to violence are thought to have committed more crimes of murder or wounding.
