Aggression Control workshops, also called anger management classes, are offered the third weekend of the month. Call the agency to find out when the next class is offered. These classes are open to anyone, men and women, wanting to learn more about anger management and aggressive behavior. Some clients are court ordered to complete Level 1 (one day) or Level 2 (two day) classes. Each day, class is 8 hours long from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. The workshops are educational classes that offer many different teachings regarding dealing with feelings, people, and situations without using aggression. You will learn about feelings, why you have them, and how to take care of them. In addition, you will examine the connection between your feelings, thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors. We discuss where your beliefs come from and how they influence your behaviors. We teach conflict resolution skills, self care, and assertiveness techniques. You will learn to identify controlling behaviors and alternatives to these controlling behaviors. We talk about the impact of aggressive behaviors on adults and children who witness these behaviors. We also teach many methods to reduce abusive and controlling behavior. Each participant will leave with tools they can use right away to change the way they respond to difficult situations. These classes are taught in a positive supportive environment and are designed to focus upon the learning. Every teacher uses non shaming methods of teaching.
It needs to be stated that this class is often just a starting point for treating anger management issues. Anger management is often best treated in an ongoing group, which we also offer.
