WHAT IS ANGER?

Anger is a natural human response which is frequently in response to frustration, or of feelings that something important is being blocked or thwarted.

ANGER MANAGEMENT

We all get angry. How we deal with anger is what anger management addresses.  Actions such as violent responses to triggers are learned behaviors and can be unlearned. This course will introduce you to building new skills and introduce you to a toolbox of techniques to give you back control when you experience anger impulses. This course will address the effects that uncontrolled anger has on your life, the lives of loved ones and all the people we interact with. This course will teach you how to control your anger instead of it controlling you.
