Young Persons Anger Support Programme

This one day experiential course has been designed to help those who work in schools, care homes, social services and care settings and any organisation that may have to deal with anger and other strong emotions in young people.

It can help to offer support to young adults to bring calm, for those who experience highs and lows of strong and sometimes negative emotions, in particular anger. It will help to gain an understanding of anger as a process, and the things that sit beneath that anger, like low self-esteem, lack of assertiveness and very poor core beliefs, so that the interventions made, can achieve positive outcomes. 

The key elements of the one day programme are as follows:

Aims of the programme: To help participants to:

  • Develop a greater understanding of their own anger
  • Learn new ways to be able to help and support young people who are angry
