Course Description

If you have been at the mercy of the negative consequences that result from mishandled anger, Anger Management 101 will provide relief. This insightful course is  filled with both practical wisdom and application that will end the anger trap for good.

Everyone occasionally gets angry and anger is a natural reaction to the things that happen: to you, around you, to someone you care for.  Anger is a normal emotion unless the result of your anger is such that your reaction becomes uncontrollable, violent, or destructive. 

When anger becomes your reaction of choice to even the most  minor of situations, or if you find yourself lashing out unnecessarily at people you love, respect, or care for, your anger may be spiraling out of control.  Out of control anger can lead to many psychological and emotional issues, as well as many difficulties with your career, important relationships, and friendships. 

This course will provide the information you will need to end the anger cycle and live up to your true potential. We will discuss these topics:


What are Various forms of Anger

What are the Responses to Anger

How to Control Anger

Developing Empathy

Passive Aggressive Behaviors

Stress Factors

Anger in Relationships

Professional Help Resources

Breathing and Relaxation Exercises

Anyone who's interested in learning more about how to manage anger is welcome to enroll in this class. This course will provide the information you will need to end the anger cycle and live up to your true potential.
