Anger Management

PURPOSE OF THIS CLASS
Meet Court Requirements or for Personal Growth
The purpose of anger management classes is to help Participants develop empathy, increase their level of emotional intelligence, decrease the heightened emotional and physiological arousal often associated with anger.
Adjust their perception of situations, and develop healthy, constructive ways in which to express anger and frustrations.
To accurately examine their triggers, adjust and improve their communication skills.
At the beginning of classes, Participants will learn a variety of coping mechanisms that will teach them how to properly respond to and cope with anger.
Anger Management classes uncover the symptoms of deeper issues. If you participate in an anger management class, you may begin to suspect that your anger is related to a chemical imbalance in your brain, a personality disorder, or childhood abuse.
Deep breathing exercises, counting to ten to slow down the pace of a conversation, and walking away from certain situations that prompt anger are a few of the many techniques you may learn to help you control anger when you feel like it’s getting out of hand. You may also be encouraged to keep an anger journal so that you can pinpoint anger management techniques that worked as well as those that weren’t as effective.
After completing anger management classes, you will be equipped with the knowledge necessary to control your emotions, think before you speak, and react calmly in stressful situations. The goal is to become a more level-headed and patient person when times get tough.

Doing practice exercises – In some lessons, you’ll be asked to do a practice exercise (answers provided right in the exercise).  This is the second way that we confirm your understanding of material. 

Final assignment – At the end of your course you will be asked to complete a final assignment. Though it is not actually part of the class material, it will allow you to assess what you have learned during the course and give feedback and ideas about the dynamics of the Classes.

Remember, these courses are self-paced. You’ll be progressing through the course as quickly or slowly as you like. You control the pace. Once you enroll in the class, you can begin.  We want you to get the most out of this course, so we require that you complete all activities in lesson one before you’ll be allowed to continue.
