Our Anger Control Training programme is a mixture of teaching in a class and homework and aims to help people to understand why they get angry and how to control it.
Anger may lead to aggressive behaviour such as:
- Attacking someone else physically, verbally or in a passive-aggressive manner.
- Hitting objects or animals.
- Displacing anger onto someone else.
- Aggressive withdrawal.
Who is the group for?
The course is open to nearly everyone. A history of violence does not itself exclude you. We only ask that you come on the course because you want to and not because someone else thinks you should. An assessment will then be undertaken by Mind in Croydon counselling service to assess needs and suitability for the programme.
