84% of people surveyed said Americans are angrier today compared with a generation ago. In this presentation we will explore ways to break down barriers and help clients open up about the causes of their anger, acknowledging the roots of their choices so they will no longer run from their feelings or refuse to share them with others.

Young adults are still in the process of developing effective coping strategies. (American Psychological Association, 2017), So, they typically report higher levels of stress than middle-aged or older adults. For example, they are more likely to use maladaptive coping strategies, (smoking, substance use, and drinking alcohol), more than older adults There is also evidence that young adulthood is a critical period for the development of emotional maturity and emotion regulation. (Zimmermann & Iwanski). In this webinar, we will present and focus on the practical aspects of emotional regulation.

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Formulate a strategy to understand the sequence and process of anger.
  • Integrate a system to understand personal stressful situations.
  • Demonstrate the use of the anger wheel for stress management with clients.
  • Apply the “CALM” method to prepare clients to deal with anger.
