Anger and the Energy Behind it Workshop

Join mental health counselor, coach, and educator Dave Jetson as he provides valuable insights into the perils of anger and the energy behind it. The workshop will take place from Thursday, September 20th, through Sunday, September 23rd.

Through a wealth of research and over ten years in the counseling profession, Dave has worked with numerous individuals to overcome obstacles involving anger. With power to motivate or to create distance from others, anger can cause life altering problems if not addressed in a healthy manner. Anger can be useful, productive and respectful, yet few people have had the opportunity to experience this type of anger. Together, Dave will help participants recognize the energy behind anger that causes them to act or respond to people and situations in ways they later regret. This workshop will offer mental health psycho-education for participants who want to create positive change in their lives by reducing the tension, anxiety and chaos through the healthy release of anger.
