This course helps participants understand what their triggers are and develop effective and positive coping strategies to improve communications and assertiveness in dealing with stressful situations and strong emotions such as anger.

The expected outcomes of thise course are:
  • Improved relationships in the workplace, at home and in the community;
  • Enhanced team cohesion;
  • More effective problem solving skills; and
  • Reduced levels of stress and anxiety when faced with anger-generating events and circumstances.
IMPORTANT: Managing Angry Moments (MAM) is not a treatment process. It is designed to meet the needs of a non-violent CAF population and is not structured to encourage emotional expression and venting involving uncontrolled aggression.
