Anger Management Courses for Couples

up arrow

Presented by Transitional Psychology & The Men’s Information and Support Centre

The anger management course for couples is designed to transform the way we experience and view anger in relationships. The impact of anger does not need to be devastating and having mastery and choice about how anger effects us and our lives is an empowering experience. We will be inquiring into things that we cannot already see about ourselves and the dynamics in our relationship that lay hidden from view. The course content is not only applicable to anger in our closest relationships, it can also be applied to all areas of life and to all relationships.

Focus of the Course:

  • Getting to the source of anger
  • Inquiring into our view of anger and our partner’s anger
  • Transforming the impact of anger in relationships
  • Managing our own anger & dealing with anger in others

Facilitated by psychologist, Gordon Wagner (B.Psych.Hons) and counsellor Michelle Gorgula (B.Psych.Hons).
