Emotion Regulation/Anger Management Group

Learning skills for understanding and dealing with anger will make it easier for children to solve problems,get help when needed and be more relaxed around others.

Who is this group suitable for: children and teens suitable for this group are those who may act impulsively or aggressively and find it difficult to manage their emotions. Learning to recognize when they are getting angry helps children understand how angry feelings work. Children will be taught to be aware of what triggers their anger. Then they will learn strategies to help them cool down and stay calm instead of getting carried away by angry feelings. 

Children with anger problems are often rejected by other children because of their difficult behaviour. Feeling rejected, they may think others are being mean to them and become more angry. This may start a pattern of thinking that leads them to respond with aggressive behaviour even where no intention to hurt is present.

How the group works:  weekly sessions for 8 weeks in a row

Confidentiality: in these sessions, confidentiality is necessary and expected of all participants. You could ask your child or teen about his or her activities within this group, but please do not ask about other children or teens. An informed consent & confidentiality agreement will be available for each participant, at the intake appointment.

Intake Appointment: an intake appointment is required for interested clients.

Payment:  There is a cost of $ 495 per person for all 8 (weekly) sessions.  All Private Health Insurance Plans Accepted. This is also a tax deductible expense.

For efficiency of group interaction, places are limited to maximum 8 members per group. Regular, punctual attendance is expected (with the exception of unavoidable emergencies, illness, etc.), as it maximizes the therapeutic usefulness of the group process.
