A Thought!

You have boiled water before. You know that you can’t just fill a pot with water and expect the water to begin to boil immediately. It takes time for the water to warm up, and for all those molecules to bounce around and start the water bubbling. What is your boiling point? Like the pot of water, you don’t all-of-a-sudden become angry. Anger is a healthy, natural feeling of displeasure that usually has many causes. The difficulty often lies in identifying the sources of your anger and learning how to communicate it appropriately. This course will enable you to understand your anger and teach you how it to use it to help you create positive solutions in your life.

Anger has played a significant role in history. Wars, divorces, new nations, and old feuds have sprung from the root of anger and impacted society, families, and individuals. Today, anger is an accepted emotion, but many of us have seen inappropriate anger modeled in our families of origin.

  • Learn to recognize anger as healthy and natural.
