On any given day, you might experience at least one of these forms of anger. By taking this course, you’ll have a better understanding of yourself and others, as well as the tools to control your anger instead of letting your anger control you.

Completing the assignments gives you insight into your behaviors and feelings as well as an opportunity to try out new behaviors. Doing the homework is an important part of this course if you’re looking for change! The truth is, anger is a normal emotion. Without this emotion, you’d most likely find yourself in situations where you’re taken advantage of, or doing things that aren’t in your best interest. So, anger is actually a protective mechanism…a signal to pay attention because something feels wrong or threatening. This course gives anger its due, but also points out the downside of anger. As you probably know, it’s not the emotion that’s problematic, but what you do when you’re angry. The ways you express anger can either resolve the problem or make the problem worse. You can end up getting what you want, or blowing the entire deal, friendship, relationship, or career. That’s why it’s important to understand anger, and how to best express it in a way that doesn’t destroy relationships or derail careers. As a Licensed Therapist, I’ve helped many people deal with anger. Mastering your anger is a skill that pays off big-time in both your personal happiness and your relationships. Come join me!
