Anger Management (Adult & Adolescent)
We use a research-based curriculum designed for those who have difficulty managing their anger appropriately. Clients learn the components of anger, relaxation techniques, and coping skills. Clients receive a certificate of completion at the end of six-session series. Although some clients are referred by probation and the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), anyone desiring to learn how to manage anger more effectively may benefit from this class.
