Individual Counseling & Full-Day Workshops

Anger Management

Our Steps

At Chenal Family Therapy, we recognize that anger management is more complex than simply “learning to control your emotions.” We recognize that anger is a valid emotion and we believe that acknowledging both our human tendency to experience anger, as well as our right to get angry over legitimate complaints, is crucial to not acting angry. 

Our individual anger management counseling and our intensive format workshops are meant to help accomplish three things that will lead to greater harmony, peace, and safety with the people around our clients. Specifically, we focus heavily on:

Step

01

Learning to better choose relationships and situations that don’t cause legitimate anger.

Step

02

Strengthening a person’s ability to discern between rational and irrational anger. 

Step

03

Acquiring skills to properly navigate anger when it occurs, so that your anger does not make the situation worse.

 Upcoming Classes

Classes are led by Alisa Anthony, a former probation officer now working as an LAC, offering a one day intensive anger management class.  This group includes psycho-edicational, individual workbook / journaling, and therapeutic group processing.  The curriculum is SAMSHA approved and meets the requirements for curt-ordered anger management classes.
Cost is $299, includes lunch, workbook, and certificate upon completion.

 Our Programs

We offer anger management in two formats, both involving between 8-12 hours of therapeutic work. They each use a workbook that meets Federal standards for anger management curriculum. They also include an assessment at the beginning and end of treatment to ensure that you’ve grasped the material and to validate that a change has occurred in your approach towards anger. 

The format you choose is highly dependent on your individual budget and how quickly you need to complete the work (if under a court deadline). Both result in a certificate of completion upon successful completion. 

Additional details:

  •  Designed for Court, Employer, Relationship Distress, or Self Improvement
  •  Course is a nationally-recognized program
  • Court-Ordered Anger Management Certificate provided to participants 
  • Participants must make 80% or higher on final test to receive certificate
  • Counseling available for participant family members
  • One-on-One Anger Management offerings include: 8, 16, and 24 hour programs
Individual Anger Management Sessions

This is arguably the most effective approach, since the therapist’s full attention is given to one individual, their triggers and their personal history with anger. It is typically completed over 8-12 weeks and may be covered by insurance. This provides the highest level of confidentiality, since no one besides are our staff needs to be aware that you’re receiving services. 

Group Anger Management Class

This is the quickest and most cost-effective approach since it is offered over a single day, usually on a weekend. You will be part of a group of 5-10 other people who meet in a private setting with one of our therapists. Each hour of the workshop includes lecture, individual writing exercises that help you process what you’ve learned, and group discussion time. This is not covered by insurance and our practice cannot guarantee your privacy due to the presence of other participants.
