Anger Management

Ages 18+

In this group, clients will learn what anger is, how to identify the symptoms of anger, and how to recognize when their feelings of anger are growing to a destructive level. During this process, we will explore how our belief systems play into our emotions and how those belief systems can be altered so that we may regain control of our actions. Clients will learn the difference between controlling their emotions and controlling their actions tied to those emotions. As a result, clients will learn to recognize their feelings in the early stages, and with enough time to be able to use the techniques, concepts, and skills learned in group, to begin to make healthier choices and ultimately be less reactive to triggers.

Women's Empowerment Art & Meditation
