Mentor, OH, November 13, 2019: Melanie J. Blasko, President and CEO of Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers, Inc. is pleased to announce that it now offers Anger Management Intervention classes at its Chardon Outpatient Office.
Anger management intervention helps individuals who have a difficult time controlling their anger by teaching them tools to identify anger cues and triggers along with diversion techniques. To increase the individuals’ awareness of their personal patterns and behaviors regarding anger, and to assist them in developing an anger control plan.
“Our new anger management intervention is for individuals age 18 or older who have a desire to better control their anger, may be used to fulfill requirements through courts for anger management classes or individuals who may be referred by the criminal justice system, employer, school, other agency or profession, family or self-referred”, said Blasko. This class is not a replacement for anger management therapy.
Prevention Specialists will provide group classes using an evidenced-based curriculum workbook to assist in recognizing personal anger cues and developing an anger management plan. Concepts will include how past learning can influence present behavior as well as the aggression cycle and how to change it. Additionally, clients will learn and practice anger management tools including relaxation, communication skills interventions, cognitive restructuring, and assertiveness training.
