What do the teachers say about
like to express my enthusiasm and gratitude to Anger Management. It was my pleasure to
assist Mrs. Dolly Johnson at a Youth Seminar. I wondered how a class of 8 - 10 students,
varying in the age of 10 - 12 would communicate their feelings to one another, Some
students were agitated just because they were there.
With the "tools" this program provides, we were able to
get around personality conflicts. I think I can speak for the students if I say that
knowing everyone is entitled to their own opinion, left the gates of communication wide
open for civil discussions on personal matters.
I am writing this letter to state that I have worked
with the New Hope/Anger Management program for several years. As a special education
teacher, I used parts of the program with my emotionally handicapped students to help them
learn to deal with their anger appropriately. I found that this complemented my behavior
management system and blended well with conflict resolution strategies.
I had the pleasure of working with this program as a facilitator
during a New Hope Anger Management weekend seminar. This session had youngsters
that ranged from pre-teen to teenagers. I worked with several children who were pre-teens
but was able to observe both age groups during the session. I felt that the program
appeared to help these children understand that everyone has an opinion and that it can
differ from their own. It also aided them in identifying support people, called a safety
net, to help them deal with their feelings and practice using skills to express their
anger in acceptable ways.
I highly recommend this program for the reasons that I listed
What do some
What I learn in anger management was, sometimes when we get
too buisy we do not take the time to see what is really going on. I also learned to listen
to my mother better and deal with my own personal problem. Anger is something we have a
hard time with.
I am only 11 years old and I learned not knowing how to stop the
anger causes it to grow and I could take it out on others. So the class is good.
Anger Management has helped me alot. My attitude towards my brother is not so strong. I
have learned to control my temper. Anger Management and some help from karate, has changed
my attitude 98%.
When I first started the class I felt like I didn't fit in. But
everybody made me feel welcome. I played lots of games and had lots of fun! Mrs. Dolly,
the person who put the whole thing together, was the most fun of all.
