#8784 Beyond Anger and Violence is a 40-hour, evidence-based program designed for women who have difficulty managing anger. Based on a social-ecological model, the program addresses the factors that put women at risk for experiencing overwhelming feelings of anger, and perpetrating assaults or destruction of property. It consists of a DVD, a facilitator’s guide, and a participant’s workbook.
This curriculum acknowledges anger as a normal, appropriate, and human emotion, but also recognizes the destruction it can lead to if allowed to get out of control. The participant’s workbook will help guide them through the program, reinforcing the discussions held in session. Topics include:
- The effects of trauma
- Relationships and communication, control, and conflict
- The importance of safety and the power of community
- Self-transformation, and creating change
Written for those who will be facilitating the therapeutic intervention “Beyond Anger and Violence Program,” the facilitator’s guide contains a step-by-step guide containing the theory, structure, and content needed for running groups. With tips on conducting group sessions and materials needed for each session, this guide provides a background into the type of environment that is necessary for a therapeutic program to be effective, considerations for the facilitator in conducting the program, and descriptions of the theories and knowledge that are the underpinning of the program.
The workbook alone (288 pages, softcover, © 2014) is $31.25; the complete curriculum (DVD, facilitator’s guide, and workbook, © 2014) is $225.95. SPECIALS ON WORKBOOKS: 10 copies for $289.95; 100 copies for $2,695.00.
