Controlling Anger Before It Controls You
All of us have experienced anger in some way. We can easily think of an incident (real or perceived) that provokes strong feelings in us. Someone who is rude or cuts us off in traffic, a boss or colleague who does not appreciate us, a new tax, or a reminder of an old wrong can all provoke feelings of anger.
This workshop will help you to explore the causes of anger, the different ways that anger presents itself, and coping tools that you can use.
The information here can help you to manage your own anger effectively; to recognize when anger is the behavior that you are faced with even if it is masked as something else; and to recognize and respond to or diffuse anger in your work, family, and social lives.
We will consider ways to change negative thinking, and ways to help develop healthier behaviors and a more fulfilling life.

- Understand Anger and its causes
