Anger Management

The Father Center’s anger management classes offer a small group format that provides opportunities for personalized learning.

Participants learn to identify the primary ways anger activates and escalates within their mind and body.

They develop a personal plan that will be most effective in helping them stay cool, calm and in control during stressful situations.
