Anger management is a specialized service that focuses on defusing anger and hostility. Changes Place will provide an evidence based approach to treating anger control problems with individuals and groups. Empirically supported treatments will be utilized to evaluate, educate, and treat anger control problems. It is the goal of Changes Place to help individuals to identify manifestations and triggers of anger and to know when anger is helpful or hurtful. Changes Place also seeks to provide assertiveness training, conflict management, and problem-solving skills to individuals seeking anger management. Furthermore, coping skills will be developed through cognitive restructuring interventions and stress management/relaxation interventions provided during the course of the program.
