Anger: It is a Choice
Most people believe that anger is an emotion that just overcomes them and causes them to behave in ways that they later regret. This workshop helps you understand that anger is a choice that people make, often subconsciously, in order to help them get what they want in that moment. You can learn to choose differently by first becoming aware of the choice and then making a plan to do something more effective to get what you want in a way that doesn’t harm others and damage your relationships.
