Stress & Anger Management

Free

with Julie Berube, Biddeford Adult Education

Calendar Current session started Jan 25, 2021 at 10 am, runs for 13 weeks

Information is Power. Life can be overwhelming these days with school, work, and family. Stress is a fact of life; we need to learn how to manage it. We will learn how to take advantage of the positive and reduce the negative effects of stress!

Anger is one of the most misunderstood over-used human emotions. In this class we will learn how to recognize anger by identifying our anger triggers. We will learn about the three components of anger; the Emotional State, the Expression, and the Understanding. This class will increase your knowledge about how anger affects you. You will learn new ways to cope with anger and set goals to manage anger more effectively. Learning how to manage stress and anger is a way of taking control of your life. It is also a way of staying healthy and happy.
