About this event

Temper Your Anger – Interactive online 5 Evening Programme


Not knowing how to stop your anger causes it to grow, intensify and spread to anyone or anything that gets in the way. Often it harms the ones we love – wife, husband, partner, children, friends or even people we work with, both colleagues and customers. It is important that we learn what triggers us in the first place. We react before we stop and think, then find ourselves having to deal with the consequences, which can be painful.

Overview of Temper Your Anger:

Our intensive and in-depth anger management programme is delivered online over five evenings. The programme format is psycho-educational, experiential and collaborative and is open to all adults who wish to explore, understand and identify the roots of their anger and learn the necessary tools and techniques to express it in a healthy way.

Participants will identify their anger triggers and develop a profile of their own anger and stress levels in order to transform them into a healthy part of their lives.

Evidence shows that our anger is usually rooted in childhood and adolescence. Growing up in an invalidating environment where rejection, withdrawal of love, physical and emotional abuse, inappropriate punishments and humiliation are some of our experience, we cope by locking these traumatic memories in the unconscious part of our brain where they secretly fuel our angry reactions in the present.

Ranging from those who are violent in their expression of anger to those who inhibit and contain their rage, Temper your Anger helps you step through your inhibitions to start the process of effectively managing your anger and that of others.

What you will learn:

  • How to recognise your anger type and style
  • Historical anger verses present anger
  • The first six rules of anger management
  • Primary feelings and needs
  • Recognising anger triggers
  • Strategies for managing your anger
  • The human brain and anger
  • Giving and receiving effective feedback
  • Techniques for healthy conflict resolution
  • Shame and anger

Other topics covered include:

  • Active listening
  • How we perceive things
  • Reactions verses responses to anger
  • Recognising differences between clean and unclean anger
  • Creating a support network
  • Recognise your assumptions, stereotypes and prejudices
  • Benefits of keeping an anger journal
  • Taking time out
  • Interpersonal clearings
  • Why we take things personally
  • Recognising the early warning signals of anger 

Cost: Euro 295 (payable in advance)
