How individuals handle their anger and stress affects a radius of people around them.

Youth, parents and caregivers will learn to better manage their anger and stress at home and in the workplace.

Through presentations, group discussion and skill-building activities, participants will 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. This multi-session program can be provided in a variety of community educational settings. The RELAX: Alternatives to Anger series is also available online.
