Anger, Rage and Relationship

This two day (weekend) workshop, available in Poole and Exeter, will help counsellors, psychotherapists and others in helping professions deepen their understanding of, and confidence in, working with their own and clients’ anger and rage.

  • This workshop defines and differentiates between anger and rage, explores the positive aspects of anger and identifies a wide range of ways in which anger gets distorted.
  • Presents neuroscience, academic and positive outcomes in psychotherapy research, which support a relational approach and methodologies for working with anger and rage
  • There is an opportunity to view a demonstration of the approach, skills practice, a supervision slot to discuss a case and opportunities throughout for Q&A.
  • Provides really useful models to guide participants' practice and to share with clients, as well as methodologies that are both professionally and personally useful.
  • Deepens understanding about how a therapeutic relationship alone provides clients with everything they need to address their anger and rage issues.
  • Arms participants with up to date neuroscience, positive outcomes in therapy and academic research findings.
  • An empathic, relational approach will be experienced first hand as the process of the training mirrors the approach being advocated.

  4. You will take away really useful models to guide your practice and to share with your client

  5. You will deepen your understanding about how a therapeutic relationship alone provides your client with everything they need to address their anger and rage issues

  6. Feedback about the quality of this training, it’s relevance to practice and it’s usefulness personally to participants is consistently very high

  7. Through this training you will discover that you already have all the necessary skills to work with anger and rage

  8. Rage is an issue for all of us, not just those who come to the attention of authorities or come to us as clients; participants have experienced helpful insights into their own anger and rage processes

  9. You will be armed with up to date neuroscience, positive outcomes in therapy and academic research findings which challenge the mainstream understanding of and approach to rage issues

  10. Participants have commented on how the process of the training mirrors the approach being advocated and experience an empathic, relational approach first hand
