The anger management class at Harvest House helps residents understand the destructive consequences of uncontrolled anger and the steps they can take to change. The goal is to give residents the tools they need to manage powerful emotions in a positive way.
The class is discussion-based and uses the Gaining Control of Ourselves workbook by Anderson and Anderson.
We cover things like:
- The causes and costs of anger
- How to develop more self-awareness
- Stress management
- Emotional intelligence
- Thinking of consequences before acting
- Identifying and managing high-risk situations
- Communicating positively with others
