WHY "MANAGE" ANGER?
"23 Years of Successful Classes"
With stories in the newspaper almost daily about violence in families, the workplace and the community, it is vital that men individually and collectively seek better alternatives to anger expressed as violence. These classes address the needs of men who believe their verbal anger is out-of-control as well as those who want to communicate better to avoid the misunderstandings which can lead to violent anger. We specifically seek to serve men who are either verbally abusive or who tend to stuff their anger and could become physically violent -- not those who currently are physically violent. Men helping other men learn to manage anger effectively will significantly affect men and their relationships with women, children, and other men.
Current Class Schedule
Classes are filled on a first come, first served basis. Currently, there are eight sessions each year at our Minneapolis office.
The focus of the twelve-week anger management class is both education and support. Through class interaction, experiential exercises, lecture, and homework assignments, men will develop new ways to manage their feelings of anger. Following completion of the class, participants can join an ongoing support group to reinforce their new skills. These ongoing support groups will also be facilitated by the trained volunteer facilitators.
Length of Class: One evening per week for 12 consecutive weeks. Each class lasts about two hours.
Number of Participants: Space is limited to 12 participants with 2 facilitators per class.
Cost: $265 for Men's Center members; $275 for non-members. Retake for $65. Use our website, www.tcmc.org to register and pay for an Anger Management Course on PayPal. (There is a small fee to offset PayPal costs,)
