The information taught in RELAX: Alternatives to Anger will provide social workers the tools to counsel and teach individuals struggling with managing anger in a constructive manner. Many individuals are seeking out anger management and social workers are often on the front lines to meet this request. This seminar will provide six Social Work Continuing Education Units certified by the Michigan Social Work Continuing Education Collaborative.

The Michigan State University Extension’s anger management training program RELAX: Alternatives to Anger is designed to actively engage adult learners in a group setting to increase knowledge and skills around anger management and give those constructive ways to deal with anger. Aspects of promoting social emotional health are woven throughout the training and include expressing emotions, navigating stress, resolving interpersonal conflict, taking another’s perspective, feeling capable, whole, and building skills for forming and maintaining satisfying, healthy and supportive relationships.
