Anger Management

Anger Management

Anger is a completely normal healthy human emotion. The problem begins when anger gets out of control, turns destructive and affects our personal relationships and other areas of our lives.

Is Anger Management right for you?   Are you over the age of 18?

Do you have difficulty expressing anger without using physical or verbal aggression?
Is your anger impacting your relationships with family, friends and co-workers?
Do you feel that you are at risk of becoming more aggressive?
The John Howard Society of Peterborough offers an 8 week group training program to teach participants self-monitoring and self-management skills that allow them to reduce the intensity, frequency and duration of their anger.  Some of the topics covered are:

All individuals enrolling are required to complete an Intake for the program.
