General Information
Description of ServiceThe Anger Management program provides individual evaluations at Court request, and a 10-Week Group for men and women aged 21 and over. Group members can be mandated by Court or be self-referring, and receive counseling on recognizing the triggers for anger, methods for managing it, and strategies for reducing stress and removing themselves from situations which potentially result in anger, rage, and/or inappropriate behavior. Applicants seeking a Batterer's Group are referred elsewhere. The program runs for 10 weeks, and participants can cycle in at any point there is an opening, once they have completed their evaluation.
