Tuesdays 4-4:50pm EST
Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
Really, Anger Management is the wrong name for what we do. We’re not interested only in managing anger, but in transforming it.
The goal is to become more aware of the emotional wounds underlying anger and to learn how to constructively channel and express aggression.
You will need to ask the significant people in your life to list the aggressive behaviors that you are doing that are scary, hurtful and upsetting. You will then maintain a log of each time you do these behaviors, and the accompanying thoughts and feelings.
A digital workbook is provided, to study at your own pace. Before concluding treatment you will make a presentation on what you have learned. The other group members and I will evaluate you based on the degree to which you’re taking responsibility for your actions, demonstrating empathy towards the people affected by them, developing insight into the deeper emotional pain and cultivating the skills of managing and transforming your rage.
