RELAX: Alternatives to Anger Weekly

Mondays, September 26 and October 3, 10, 24, 2022
10:00-11:30 am ET


How individuals handle their anger and stress affects the people around them. Alternatives to Anger is a four-part educational series designed to help adults, parents and caregivers increase their knowledge about anger issues and put anger management and healthy relationship skills into practice. Through presentations, group discussion and skill-building activities, participants learn what anger is, what triggers anger, calming down and de-stressing methods, the principles of problem solving, effective communication skills and forgiving and letting go of the past. 

The concepts of RELAX include:  

  • Recognize your anger signals. 

  • Empathize by seeing the other person’s point of view. 

  • Listen and really hear what the other person is saying. 

  • Accept that the other person’s anger is NOT ABOUT YOU. 

  • “X”- out the past and keep it in the present.

Oct 3 - Lesson 2 – Calming down and de-stressing.              

Oct 10 - Lesson 3 – Six Principles of Problem-Solving.

This is a free class.
