Anger Management

Family Services offers an educational program that assists adults and teens with anger management.  Individuals aged 12-17 attend eight group classes and have several meetings with a counselor or facilitator.  Adults (18 and over) attend 18 group classes conducted by a counselor from Family Services Counseling Center to learn about:

  • Symptoms of anger
  • Ways to cope with anger
  • How to have more positive reactions to everyday stress
  • Making a plan to deal with anger

Adult Anger Management Classes – We have separate classes for men and women over the age of 18 each Monday from 6pm-7:30pm at the Family Services Counseling Center.  Classes are also available in Port Arthur.

Teen Anger Management Classes – Classes are each Tuesday from 6pm to 7:00pm at the Family Services Counseling Center.

Here’s what some past Anger Management participants have had to say about the program:

“Let me start by saying I am VERY thankful to have had this experience.  With that being said, I don’t have the words to describe my counselor.  This man is, without a doubt, the most genuine, caring and understanding individual I have ever encountered.  He showed me it was OK no to be perfect but to strive for it everyday.  I believe now that I can help others like myself.” – Anger Management Client

“I came in a troubled child, filled with hate and anger. The staff listened to me and opened my eyes to another world I didn’t even know about. I still get mad, but I’m able to control it and make wise decisions. This wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t come here.” – Teen Anger Management Client

Here are some points to remember about Anger Management

  • All classes begin on time.
  • No refunds.
  • A certificate is issued upon completion of all classes.
