Hearts of Your Youth Concerning Anger
Last summer I attended the Anger
Management class. I learned how my defense mechanisms work. This helped me to realize when
I was using them and to resort to an alternative. I learned why it is bad to repress anger
and that it is better to cope with it. I was in an environment with other people like me.
This makes it easier to share feelings and have people to relate to...I got allot from this
class. I would recommend this class for everyone who needs it.

I participated in the Anger Management
Class in the summer of 2000. I learned most of my anger problems were occurring because I
am an imploder. This means that when something stressful would happen, I would hold it in.
Eventually after gradual events occurred I would snap.
Since the Anger Management Class, I have improved greatly and m y
emotions handling things are great. To conclude, this class really helped me in many ways
and I would recommend this class to other kids.

Management has helped me a lot in learning to control my anger. I was also dealing with
frustration, disappointment and hurt.
Most of my frustration came from school. When I was not in school, I
hardly talked at all. I don't have many friends. Tests caused much of the frustration I
had. Just thinking about them made me angry because, most of the time, I failed tests.
I have been very disappointed with many things and that brings on hurt.
I became disappointed when my Mom and Dad left each other. I kept asking myself, "Why
me?" and I was hurt and angry. Even though I know that it is best for both of them
not to be together, it hurts me very much.
I think that without Jesus in my life, I would not get through all of
this. I know that I am not alone and that Jesus is always with me. He has really helped
me. Anger Management has also helped me to control my anger and not to stuff the anger
inside of me. I just want to say thank you to Jesus, and to Anger Management.

It is with great
pride that I send this letter forward in behalf of Dolly Johnson and New Hope. Mrs.
Johnson and the Anger Management program have been a God send to me and my work.
Dolly has successfully taught classes for the young people of my congregation including
grades 3 through 12. Her communication with the kids was strong and compassionate and the
Anger Management curriculum was timely and useful to my kids.
I highly recommend this program to anyone looking to deal with
the pressures of youth anger.
I have used this program a number of times to get the strong word across that anger needs
to be dealt with. My sincere hope is that Mrs. Johnson has the opportunity to present this
program to others.

I want to express my thanks to Dolly Johnson for the fine job she did teaching 25 kids how
to deal with stress and anger management. The 4 weeks were sincerely a blessing in helping
them get ready for school.
The Mayor and Police Chef really thought it was great. Through
the efforts of Dolly and Operation Hope many people will be given hope for their future by
receiving assistance and guidance on their journey.

attended the New Hope Anger Management Class in the summer of 2000. After the class was
over, we sat down and discussed what they had learned. I learned from my children that
they each handle anger differently. My daughter would hold things in and my son would
explode. They learned what their "defense mechanisms" were and how they could
change the way they reacted to a particular situation. My daughter's "defense
mechanism" was withdrawal, while my son had several. He would rationalize his actions
and always blamed something or someone else. Another one he used was repression. He used
to humor or changed the subject to cover up what he really felt inside instead of dealing
with the anger and emotions. Learning and understanding what their defense mechanisms are
when they are anger has helped them to change the way they react to their anger. They
learned that there are more effective ways to channel their anger. I am able to understand
them better, which changes my reaction to the situation too.
I am a single parent because I decided to leave an abusive and
controlling relationship so that the quality of life would be better for my children. As
parents, I believe that we are responsible for providing our children with the tools and
skills that they will need in life.
The "Anger Management Class" provided excellent
knowledge and skills in dealing with anger and emotions. This class had a great impact on
my children and gave them skills that they can use through life. As a family, we are able
to communicate better instead of fighting. Words can not express what this means to
me..... I would highly recommend this class for children and adults.
