Your chance to transform your life in the most positive way
through Online Anger Management Classes for Co-Parents!
Our online Anger Management For Co-Parents programs teach co-parenting skills and techniques for effective anger management for adults going through separation or divorce. Participation in our course may be voluntary or recommended by the court due to a high-conflict separation or divorce. (Check with your court in advance if you are mandated to take an Anger Management program to assure acceptance of this course within your county or jurisdiction.)
There are two options: 8-hour or 12-hour. The 12-hour program provides greater depth of the subject and skill-sets, especially regarding interactions with children, domestic abuse and the impact of drugs on anger issues.
Both classes are designed to help divorcing or divorced parents learn what triggers their anger, strategies for managing their anger, alternate ways for expressing their anger and the consequences of anger. Parents also learn more effective co-parenting skills to make home-life and visitations easier for the children in their care. The program is widely recommended by divorce therapists, coaches, mediators and attorneys as an aid to conflict resolution before, during and after a divorce.
The programs include valuable material to read, insights to help you make better choices, video examples, quizzes, exercises, suggested resources for additional support and a final quiz to demonstrate your mastery of the content.
You will receive a Certificate that you can print out after you have completed your program and passed the final exam.

Anger Management For Co-Parents online classes help both men and women who are separating or divorcing — or who are already divorced — and are having trouble with anger issues.
Anger is a feeling that alerts you that something wrong. But you have choices regarding how you act upon those feelings. Acting before thinking can lead to mismanaged anger. Once you have reacted to anger, you have allowed your feelings to control you. This could lead you to actions and behaviors you never would have taken if you were making rational choices. Knowing how to manage anger can help you set limits and determine comfortable boundaries in your former relationships and future relationships.
While anger is a natural emotion, when faced with a challenging situation, it can also create the most destructive consequences. Improperly expressed anger can produce difficulties with family, friends, co-workers and colleagues. Left uncontrolled, it often results in encounters with law enforcement and the judicial system.
Anger Management is especially important for co-parents facing new life challenges following a separation or divorce. You will discover new ways to talk about your feelings, address concerning issues, express your emotions and hear what others are saying to you — in productive, more rewarding ways. These skills can stay with you for a lifetime and result in more harmony, better health and greater rewards in your life. Most important of all … your children will thank you!

Understanding Domestic Violence and Abusive Relationships:
Domestic violence is unpredictable, yet there is a pattern that is repeated with each episode. It starts with the honeymoon phase, where things seem to be running smoothly and going well. It then moves on to the intimidation phase, the actual violence, and then back to the honeymoon/forgiveness phase. However, the level of violence gets worse after each incidence and the duration of the violence is longer.
- Domestic abuse is any coercive behavior that a person uses to exploit, injure, mistreat or violate his/her intimate partner. The tactics an abuser uses include intimidation, threats, put downs, isolation, humiliation and other verbal sabotage.
- Domestic violence is one of the most chronically underreported crimes in America and other countries.
- It can take many forms including physical or sexual violence and often involves financial secrecy, dependence and restrictions.
- Abuse cuts across all socio-economic boundaries, all ages, both genders, all religions and educational levels. It is based on the principals of power and control and is perpetrated most frequently against women (85%), but is growing amongst men (15%).
- Abuse is no longer a family matter. It has grown into a crime.
- Domestic abuse goes through a cycle and can escalate from threats to verbal abuse, physical violence and even murder.
- Anger, spiraling out of control, usually results in some form of verbal abuse, but can lead to physical violence.
- Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women between the ages 15-44 in the United States (Source: Uniform Crime Reports, FBI)
- About one out of every four women in America will be physically assaulted or raped by an intimate partner at some point in their lives. American women are more likely to be assaulted, injured, raped or killed by a male partner than by any other type of assailant.
- Besides physical injuries, domestic violence can lead to depression, anxiety, panic attacks, substance abuse and post-traumatic stress disorder. Abuse may also trigger suicide attempts or psychotic episodes.

What to do if someone you know has an anger management problem:
If someone you know has an anger problem, you may live in fear and attempt to do everything possible to keep the peace. It is important to understand you are not to blame for someone else’s anger or behavior. There is NEVER justification for physically or verbally abusive behavior. You have a right to be treated with respect and to live without fear of an angry outburst or a violent rage.
Although you do not have control of someone’s anger, you can control how you respond to their abuse by setting clear boundaries about what you will and will not tolerate. If you feel comfortable, share your concerns about their anger issue when both of you are calm. Remove yourself from the situation if they do not remain calm down. You may consider counseling or therapy for yourself if you are having a hard time standing up for yourself and putting your safety first. Trust your instincts. If you feel unsafe or threatened in any way, go someplace safe.
