The Counseling and Training Clinic at Texas A&M Corpus Christi has decided to carry on their free Anger Resolution Skills course throughout the summer.
It’s a 10-week course specifically for helping people cope with anger issues.
The facilitator and creator of the course, Spencer Yeamans, is a Master’s student with the clinic. “People will frequently say things like well I don’t, I don’t want to be angry anymore. Well you can’t really do that. you have to find a way to resolve it.”
This course will help those facing anger problems find ways to resolve them, and use certain tools that they can carry with them to teach loved ones about anger.
The course will be in a confidential group setting, with different activities each meeting. Yeamans says, “I think that a group like this is important because not only does it help people deal with their own, again, their own mal-adaptive ways of dealing with their anger and they’re also teaching their children or their teaching their loved ones, ‘hey this is a better way to deal with anger.’”
In order to be in the course, you must be 18 or older and there will be a pre-screening to be a part of the course.
“I think that’s really huge for our society today,” says Yeamans, “is to learn how to handle it in such a way that you’re able to resolve it and it doesn’t lead to things like violence and shootings.”
The Counseling and Training Center also holds other courses as well as individual and couple counseling.
