More information: Not knowing how to manage our anger causes it to grow, intensify and spread to anyone or anything that gets in the way. Often it harms the ones we love – wife, husband, partner, children, friends or even people we work with, both colleagues and customers. We react before we stop and think, then find ourselves having to deal with the consequences, which can be painful. It is important that we learn what triggers our anger in the first place.
This workshop is open to all adults who wish to explore, understand and identify the roots of their anger. They will learn how to express it safely through the use of appropriate tools designed to manage and transform it into a positive energy in their lives.
During the workshop participants will learn:
- how to recognize their anger type and style;
- historical anger vs present tense anger;
- the six rules of anger management;
- defence mechanisms;
- to discover what anger is and what is not;
- primary feelings and emotions;
- what the main sources of anger are;
- to understand rage and how it differs from anger;
- powerful strategies for managing anger;
- to recognise anger-triggering thoughts and ways to challenge them;
- to create an anger barometer for themselves;
- to give and receive effective feedback;
- techniques for conflict resolution;
- the regressive power of historical anger;
