Understand and Manage Your Anger

A Bi-monthly Interactive Workshop for Men

Your anger can be a blessing and not a curse.

What is Anger?

Anger is an emotion that alerts us to injustice, falsehood, and that which is wrong. It gives us energy to speak the truth and act rightly. The Fall has impacted every aspect of our lives, including our relationship with our inner selves, which affects our emotions, including anger.

Do you have too much anger? Do you not have enough anger?

What is the hope?

To grow into the maturity of Christ so that our words and actions will help, not hurt others. The outcome of these workshops is to increase understanding of how anger works and how our personal experiences contribute to our anger. Participants will gain practical skills for identifying and controlling anger.

You will learn to: identify and understand your anger; calm yourself down; take helpful and healthy actions when angry.

What are these interactive workshops?

A Christian anger management group for men, led by Paul Caprera, a Christian licensed professional counselor who specializes in anger management. The approach is grounded in practical psychological understanding and in Christian theological truths, and has proven to be helpful for many!

The workshop involves: one half hour phone consultation with the counselor prior to first group; 3 Saturday interactive workshops (6 hours of direct interaction with counselor and group per Saturday); cohorts limited to 8-12 men, maximizing engagement and interactions; and completing an anger management workbook with weekly readings filled with practical information and helpful assignments.

How to Start

Cost: $30 for anger management workbook (receiving at first Saturday workshop), $100 per Saturday workshop. Total cost for program is $330.

Workshops will be held at the Taconic Retreat Center, 64 White Drive, Milan, NY 12571 and at Faith Baptist Church, 11 Glenridge Road, Rexford, NY 12148.

This project is being presented by a partnership between CCA Hope, of Albany, and the Taconic Retreat Center, near Red Hook, NY. The goal is to provide men the support they need to understand and manage their anger.

Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love.
