Course Dates: 29/11/19
Time: 11:00 - 18:00

Anger as a core feeling seeks to communicate and is not something to be aimlessly expressed or hidden. Understand it better and help your clients give a clear and coherent voice to their anger. Suitable for therapists, helping professionals and trainees. This course is aimed at counsellors, other helping professionals and trainees. It is not aimed at people seeking help for the specific course subjects.

An exploration of the emotion or state of anger, understand what we want to communicate when we feel angry, and develop strategies to enable clients to communicate their needs more clearly and move through anger into action.

Blame and responsibility.

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

Explain the difference between a primary and a secondary feeling.
Use empowering behaviour when expressing anger.
Coach your clients to voice anger in a safe and effective manner.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

This is a professional development workshop aimed at practitioners and trainees who are comfortable with experiential group work and willing to look at their own process as a way of learning. You will have experience of interactive group work and clinical application when dealing with emotions.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

The day will consist of a mix of theory and experiential learning where you will be working in pairs and small groups. A range of books will be available to view along with a DVD presentation. Throughout the day you will be encouraged to reflect on how you apply the learning to your own work setting.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?
