Anger Management

Stress and anger are two factors that can precipitate an act of violence towards another person. While anger is a natural emotion, it can get out of control and result in devastating impacts on interpersonal relationships. It also has the potential to create workplace andanger mangement legal issues. Our goal is to equip individuals in the program with techniques to manage their stress and anger and to minimize the frequency of their unhealthy anger responses.

As part of the Family Safety Division, the Anger Management Program is a 12 week psycho-educational program focused on learning behavioral modification techniques in a coed group setting to manage stress and anger and to minimize the frequency of unhealthy anger responses. The program is certified by the National Anger Management Association.

Individuals having completed the program should be able to:

  • reduce their levels of anger and rage
  • direct their anger into healthy problem-solving and conflict resolution methods
  • effectively use coping strategies to prevent escalation
  • regulate their emotions
  • identify triggering situations or feelings
  • develop a plan of action to manage stress and anger
