Learn to prevent impulsive reactions and stay calm and in control.
Weekend Anger Management Class - Two Saturdays (16 hours total) (See dates of upcoming classes below.)
Just as people have an intelligence for processing and manipulating thoughts and ideas, we have a similar capacity for understanding and using emotions. Know as Emotional Intelligence (EQ), it’s the ability to consciously understand and use our emotions to get optimal results from our relationships with ourselves and others. Researchers have identified key skills or fundamentals of Emotional Intelligence. When practiced, these skills allow us to use the information we’re getting from our feelings to improve our effectiveness, relationships, health, and quality of life.
This two-part, 16-hour course is designed to help individuals who are experiencing inappropriate expression of frustration and anger to develop emotional self-regulation skills for responding to the stressors of life more calmly and in a professional manner. It provides eight proven behavioral change concepts and techniques that are easily learned and can be immediately applied to your work, family and other personal life situations. As part of your participation, you will become aware of how your thoughts, choices and actions affect outcomes from your interpersonal interactions. Thought-provoking written exercises will give you opportunities to revisit past incidents and analyze why things happened the way they did, become aware of how you contributed to what happened, and then allow you to contemplate how you can make better choices. You’ll also learn skills for communicating effectively with others and resolving conflict in even the most stressful situations. As a result, your relationships can improve and collaborative solutions are more likely to be worked out whenever disagreements and conflict arise.
As you proceed through the two parts of the course, you’ll create a Personal Change Practice Plan for each part that will help encourage you and be a reminder of how to apply the eight skills you learned to specific situations in your personal and workplace settings. The class is held in a nonjudgmental, uplifting class setting where participants can feel inspired and supported by their classmates. Participants receive a certificate of completion immediately at completion of the class.
Weekend Anger Management Class - Part 1 (8 Hours) 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Tuition: $95 Part 1 of our weekend class provides exercises to help participants identify anger triggers, behaviors and beliefs that make them vulnerable to anger arousal and expression.
