Anger is a normal human emotion that everyone experiences from time to time. 

But when anger becomes overwhelming, it can be distressing and lead to difficulties in your day-to-day life.

These courses explore the triggers of anger and identify ways to reduce its impact on your life and the lives of those around you.
