Working with anger
Many of us have difficulties with anger; some of us implode with our anger, some of us fear anger in others and some of us explode with our anger. Anger is a response to a need that is seeking to be met, a need to change or restructure a situation that we do not like or that we find unbearable.
Acts of anger and violence are on the increase both on the street and in close relationships. We can manifest anger in many different behaviours; withdrawal, distancing, turning anger into tears, being critical and acts of destructiveness and violence. All of these are mechanisms for coping.
In this workshop we shall clarify our relationship to our own feelings of anger and practise constructive and appropriate ways of experiencing, expressing and meeting anger. We shall also look at the effects of anger both on ourselves and others and how we deal with it within relationships.
About the host
For over 21 years through our work with individuals, couples, families we have evolved a successful programme of workshops to teach anger management strategies, constructive perspectives on anger and skills for influencing its various facets. Learning to live with anger in a constructive way requires both skill and practice over time.
