About This Program

Target Population: Adults who have anger control and/or communication problems; can also be used with adolescents

Brief Description

Century Anger Management Model of Intervention teaches eight essential tools of anger control to participants, usually in a class or group format. It is a highly structured 10-hour core program around the program’s workbook titled Anger Management for the Twenty-First Century. Usually, the classes are held on a weekly basis for one hour each, although accelerated weekend intensive programs are offered.

All participants are provided with this workbook (separate workbooks are available for adults and adolescents) which provides many worksheets and questionnaires to personalize and apply the tools of anger control in their daily lives. Participants are also encouraged to practice the tools between sessions and then briefly share their progress or challenges with the rest of the class. A certificate is issued at the completion of the program. Graduates are invited to return to future classes for a free “tune-up,” if needed.
