The Power to Change—Managing Anger and Fears
The Power to Change—Managing Anger and Fears is a peer-to-peer self-help program where adolescents age 12-18 and inmates in correctional facilities learn impulse control and how to manage anger and fears. Beyond its subtitle it is a life skills program. Participants learn to take control of their lives, rather than be victims of events or of other people’s behavior. The underlying premise is that while individuals have little control over the events or people around them, they can control their own thoughts and impulses. Through ongoing training and practice, they form new cognitive and behavioral habits that help them gain mastery over their angry or fearful reactions.
