ANGER MANAGEMENT GROUP
What is the Anger Management Group?
The goal of Anger Management is to become more aware of the triggers of anger, the effects of aggression and the underlying emotional wounds.
How does it work?
Members keep a log of situations that trigger them and work through a chapter in an Anger Management workbook each week. In group sessions, members are invited to share insights from their log and workbook. Other members are encouraged to respond with their immediate thoughts, feelings and reactions. As we explore the dynamics that unfold in the group, members gain real-time feedback of what activates them and alternative possibilities to their usual thoughts and behaviors.
The group fee is $65 per week for a minimum of 12 weeks. It is not covered by insurance at IPG. Group is not for people in acute crisis or psychosis, active addiction or suicidality. Members are charged for every session, regardless of attendance, and must attend all sessions in order to receive a certificate of completion which may be required for court-mandated clients.
