Current Groups Being Offered

Anger Management Group

Anger is a natural human emotion, but when it is out of control, it can harm our physical health, as well as our emotional and psychological well-being. If your relationships, career, and daily living are being affected by anger, our Anger Management classes can help you to understand and regulate this intense and overwhelming emotion. Our Anger Management Psychoeducational Group offers a completion certificate to participants who attend all 12 weeks of the program. This course meets the requirement for court-mandated anger management classes and is open to everyone. Meets via Zoom for 12 weeks on Mondays from 4:00 to 5:30 pm. Every 12 weeks, a new group begins.

Community Circle Group
