those who have exerted power and control in their intimate relationships through physical,

beliefs, the impact of their actions on others, various alternatives for managing their thoughts
and emotions, and ways to begin building a more positive and encouraging environment for
their partner and children. Learn more about this program.

Anger Management

The Anger Management Program helps examine where your thoughts and emotions originate
and how to manage your emotions to create a different outcome. The concepts, skills and
issues participants have the opportunity to develop through the Anger Management program
include accepting responsibility, problem-solving and communication skills to name a few.
