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
