“Anybody can become angry – that is easy; but to be angry with the right person, and to the right degree, and at the right time, and for the right purpose, and in the right way – that is not within everybody’s power and is not easy.”

This workshop is designed to enable you to develop competence in Solution Focused Anger Management, for self and others. It provides a clear framework for thinking about anger and planning steps to helping others manage their emotional and behavioural responses. As a participant you will find points to reflect on in dealing with your own responses, while gathering enough information – and some invaluable practical tools – needed  to help others.

Anger is a universal, natural and understandable emotion, yet it is one of the least understood. This workshop has proved highly successful helping people deal with anger in their client group as well as understanding, and managing, their own feelings and responses. It also provides exercises and guidance for preparing anger management workshops for others.
