Anger is often perceived as negative, but it has positive aspects too. The key to managing anger is not in eliminating it, but in channelling it to your advantage. It can elevate our emotions to help us solve problems, for example, but it can also be expressed in unacceptable and unproductive ways.
Anger Management for Professionals is an online course that will teach you how to help others to manage their anger. Whether you’re managing people in the workplace, coaching a sporting team, counselling clients, or taking stock of your own anger – this online course is ideal for you.
In this professional development course, you will develop an understanding of anger and acquire the skills to deal with anger in the workplace and professional settings. You will also discover a range of anger management techniques, ranging from relaxation exercises to changing thought patterns and learning how to communicate better reduce stress levels.
On completion of this course, you will feel empowered to manage your own anger and help others to manage their anger in healthy ways.
