Why take a course on Anger Management?
By taking this course, you’ll get the tools to control anger instead of letting your anger control you. Learning how to deal with anger will benefit your self- esteem as well as your relationships!
This course is not a substitute for therapy. This course will not address those anger issues best handled in a therapeutic setting. However, if you'd like some practical and time tested ideas for dealing with your angry feelings in a positive way, then this course will give you an opportunity to try out new behaviors.
The one- hour course includes 8 steps. Included with each step are downloadable resource materials (PDF homework assignments).
Completing the assignments gives you insight into your behaviors and feelings, as well as an opportunity to try out new behaviors. So, practicing these new behaviors is an important part of this course if you’re looking for change!
I want to emphasize here the importance of doing the practice activities if you want to reduce your angry feelings and have more positive interactions.
