Other comments from Anger Resolution Class:
“I have learned how to control emotions from bad to good. How to take over your actions before you regret it. Everything was explained with words that made sense on how to handle anger. Don’t let anger take over my life.
“I was very comfortable sharing, which says a lot, (I don’t usually speak much). Humor was thrown into the class along with the seriousness. All in all was a good class. I didn’t feel as if I was being judged so that made it easier to open up and express myself.”
“I feel that I will be able to recognize the problem before it becomes a PROBLEM—through AWARENESS”.
