If you work with people with problematic anger following trauma, this workshop will provide you with a model to better understand anger, and a set of flexible, evidence-based interventions.

 

Anger is a common response following trauma, but when a person finds it difficult to control their anger, it can contribute to a range of problems such as aggression, guilt, damaged relationships, and legal issues. Anger can be a significant barrier to recovery from trauma, and if not attended to, can impact on the effectiveness of therapy for posttraumatic stress disorder.

 

In this workshop, you will learn and practise practical strategies to help clients to better manage their problematic anger, including working with clients to understand the connection between their emotional instability and past trauma, and to better manage their problematic anger and foster improved coping and functioning.

 

These skills can be used by a range of practitioners, including those providing counselling and case management services.

 

A comprehensive guide with tools, handouts and other resources is provided.
