Anger Management Programme

Anger Management Programme (Individual and Group): 'Turning Anger Into Power'
Anger is a normal human emotion. It can be caused by anything from a friend's annoying behavior to worries about personal problems or memories of a troubling life event.

Martin Luther King said: "When I am angry I can pray well and preach well".

When handled in a positive way, anger can become positive energy that motivates people to achieve their goals and bring about changes in life. On the other hand, anger can lead to violence and injury when not addressed positively. Some people choose to ignore or bottle up anger, but this approach may actually cause more harm because the root problem is never addressed.

Children and young people who lack the appropriate skills to manage their anger often struggle in their interpersonal relationships.

This programme is for children and young people aged 5 - 18 to learn and practise anger management skills through creative arts activities such as role play, story telling, drawing, music, movement, drama. The skills will enable them to exercise self-control and stay calm in different anger provoking contexts.

1. To enhance participants' abilities to identify, assess and monitor their anger by helping them to understand the nature and expression of anger.
2. To enhance participants' self-control skills by reducing and channeling their anger into creative arts activities such as storytelling, drawing, music, movement, drama.
3. To enhance participants' abilities to stay calm in different anger provoking contexts by practicing specific relaxation techniques and role play.
