Time Out for Parents: Handling Anger in the Family

Post image

Four sessions to help you and your child understand, recognise and handle anger safely and healthily.

Anger can threaten family life.  Heated words, unresolved arguments, fights and an uneasy home atmosphere can cause families to lose trust in each other and drift apart.

How does it work?

The first two sessions will help you understand anger as a natural emotion and how you can handle this safely using practical strategies and the idea of an anger river.  The final two sessions look at equipping you to help your child understand how anger affects them, how to recognise when they enter the anger river and practical and tested ways of handling anger safely and healthily.

Session titles:

  • Managing our anger Part 1
  • Managing our anger Part 2
  • Helping children manage their anger Part 1
  • Helping children manage their anger Part 2
