What is Anger Management Group?

 

When anger is poorly managed the consequences can be wide spread. Family, friends, and even careers are often negatively affected by the results of uncontrolled anger. Improperly managed anger, whether it is held in or expressed in harmful ways, leads many people down a road of destruction.

 

The Anger Management group is a 15 week group that was created in response to a need voiced by those who wish to learn to effectively cope with, and better understand, their anger. The goal of the program is to provide support through a group setting, facilitate communication and increase awareness of thoughts and emotions through education.

 

Facilitators hold a Master's degree or above in the field of counseling or marriage and family therapy. All are trained in the concepts of treatment and the Relapse Prevention model. 

 

Any individual 9-17 years of age may attend the juvenile anger management group. A separate group is also available for adults ages 18 and over. We also offer a spanish anger management group for spanish speaking adults. Individual sessions are also offered for those seeking additional support.

What is F.O.C.U.S.?

 Families of Offenders and Compulsive Users of Sex, or F.O.C.U.S., is a psycho-educational support group for parents, adult family members, and partners of people with deviant sexual behavior. Deviant sexual behavior includes voyeurism, exhibitionism, other sexual offenses, and Compulsive Computer Pornography Behavior, of CCPB. The goal of the program is to provide support, facilitate communication and increase awareness through education.

 

The content of the program parallels the information taught to clients and offenders in treatment for sexually deviant behavior. This enables the family to better understand the importance of the application of concepts taught in the group to real life situations in order to affect positive change in behavior patterns.
