In What’s Good About Anger? Lynette Hoy and Ted Griffin teach how to decrease stress and turn anger into assertiveness, problem-solving, conflict management, empathy and forgiveness! Participants learn to identify the problem, power and process of anger (from annoyance to bitterness or rage); effective examples of “good anger”; and how research-based skills can effectively manage anger and be used to accomplish personal and relational goals.
Participants will gain a new perspective on anger, how to prevent flare-ups and how to better manage responses to provoking situations. Chronic anger can be costly – physically, emotionally and relationally. Most people can use their anger in appropriate ways in some situations, and yet can be ineffectual or harmful in other situations. Participation in this anger management course can reduce levels of anger, and help individuals learn ways to direct anger into healthy, effective coping behaviors to stop escalation and to resolve conflicts.
Logging anger, triggering situations and applying new approaches helps individuals to contain and manage anger.
Goals: To reduce levels of anger in provocative situations. To learn effective coping behaviors in order to halt escalation of anger and to resolve conflicts. To maintain and consistently develop effective skills for managing anger.
