Anger Management is available at The Center using the Century Anger Management Model of Intervention. This curriculum teaches eight essential tools of anger control to participants, usually in a class or group format. It is a highly structured 12-hour core program around the program’s workbook titled Anger Management for the Twenty-First Century. Usually, classes are held on a weekly basis for 1 1/2 hours each.
All participants are provided with this workbook which provides many worksheets and questionnaires to personalize and apply the tools of anger control in their daily lives. Participants are also encouraged to practice the tools between sessions and then briefly share their progress or challenges with the rest of the class. A certificate is issued at the completion of the program. Graduates are invited to return to future classes for a free “tune-up,” if needed.
The goals of Century Anger Management Model of Intervention are:
- To recognize and understand the nature and normalcy of anger as a hard-wired reaction for survival when triggered.
- To understand the high costs of inappropriate anger expression in today’s society.
- To learn that the emotion of anger is separate from the expression of anger.
- To respond to anger triggers in more appropriate ways.
- To learn the skill of assertive communication as an alternative to angry outbursts or suppression of appropriate angry feelings.
- To gain skills in empathy, emotional intelligence, stress management, forgiveness, and improving judgment and impulse control.
