Fully Customisable Training Course Material: Description

“The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.”

Albert Ellis

From time to time we get angry. We can be offended by people’s words, behaviour or attitude and feel anger and resentment. The way we react to the feeling of anger, how we control our emotions and our communications skills are essential in managing our angry and frustrated emotions. Those people who can control their emotions and express themselves in a controlled way stand to preserve their relationship with others or to build new ones more easily. In contrast, those who have a temper can explode at the drop of a hat and have significant difficulties to communicate with others. People keep their distance from such individuals and this in itself leads them to become more isolated and angry.

The majority of difficulties in anger control come from the lack of emotional skills and not knowing how to respond to challenges and confrontations. The solution is not to stop getting angry, but to learn how to control the response and use assertive communication.


This course aims to provide several established techniques that are suitable for different kinds of delegates. The course can be offered to people who need to learn how to control their temper when they find themselves challenged or in conflicts. It is also useful for people who might suffer from repetitive expressions of anger who can systematically address their behaviour using the techniques provided in this course.

Participants learn to use Cognitive Behaviour Therapy to manage thier Self-Talk and understand the root cause of anger

This course takes advantage of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and provides valuable techniques to manage self-talk and help people understand the root cause of anger.

The course is provided in 8 distinct sessions that can be easily delivered across multiple days if necessary (guidelines are provided in the course notes). This way, techniques thought in the course can be applied to real world scenarios and the tutor can provide feedback in the next session based on delegates’ experiences and their use of these techniques. Each session contains theory as well as specific and tailored exercises that help the delegates practice what they just learned.

The Philosophy Behind Anger Management Training Course

Emotional skills such as anger management are best learned through practice and this course is specifically designed with this in mind. The course focuses on two distinct aspects; attitude and step-by-step guidelines to handle various situations.

Many emotional problems can be resolved through self-probation and understanding that your perception of the world can be significantly different from reality. The course focuses on this topic and presents it in various forms through repetition so that delegates can fully grasp the idea. This will help them to re-examine their encounters with others and question their assumptions. Research shows that this alone can significantly help people to manage their encounters better in future interactions.

Angry Conversation - Communication Skills

Having covered the fundamentals of attitude change and mental states, several techniques on handling conflicts, assertive behaviour, managing confrontations, etc. are provided that can help people to quickly respond to various situations. It is important to master these step-by-step guides so they can be executed promptly when needed. The exercises will help the delegates to memorise these techniques during the course using accelerated learning principles.
