About the course

Have you ever felt powerless in the face of anger? If so, this practical training day is for you.

Distressing, inappropriate and often violent expressions of frustration, anger and rage are on the increase in all areas of public and private life causing ill-health, stress, misery and sometimes even injury and death.

The best way to help yourself and others is to understand the causes, triggers and behaviour patterns of anger, and to learn effective techniques for diffusing and coping with aggressive situations. This training day gives you those valuable techniques.

The day covers: anger and health; anger at work; anger in school; anger and personal safety; anger in relationships and public rage out-breaks. It also contains essential information if you deal with the general public or work with people suffering from anger disorders.

What you will gain from attending:

  • Enhanced personal safety in potentially dangerous situations
  • A new ‘toolbox’ of effective strategies for calming down and dealing
    with angry people
  • Greater understanding about the relationship between anger and emotional and physical health
  • Insight into what triggers your own anger – and how to control it
  • Better communication and conflict resolution skills
  • Information about the effects of anger on our minds and bodies
  • Ways to diffuse potentially violent situations
