Managing Emotions – Anger management is not really about being angry or upset, but HOW we lose our tempers After all, anger is a normal, healthy emotion. How we INTERPRET any given situation makes the difference in how we REACT. To complete this course, parents are required to do an activity entitle History of the Heart: a personal timeline, a birth story and a life story.
Tuesdays, 5:30 pm at the Roosevelt Suite
The interactive classroom instructor also introduces parents to brain-based research, resource videos and a personal reflection journal.
