How and Why You’ll Benefit
Our 8-hour online Anger Management For Co-parents Course is designed for women and men who are going through or transitioning after a separation or divorce. It’s designed to teach practical, useful and valuable skills and strategies for managing stress and the feelings of anger associated with it.
Comprehensive as well as enlightening, the program will enable you to be more empathic towards your family and others. It will also help you practice more assertive and less aggressive behaviors.
You’ll explore better communication styles and options. These insights will improve your level of functioning and decision-making. This is especially helpful when coping with the difficult challenges related to separation, divorce and changing family dynamics. You’ll discover why you get angry, what triggers your anger, what your early warning signs are, the consequences of anger and how to manage your anger more effectively.
Greater Self-Control, Peace of Mind and Confidence
When you’re experiencing a separation or divorce it is important to be aware of your emotional, cognitive and physical responses to anger. And also the different ways you respond to conflict. With these skills you can face situations in your life with greater self-control, peace of mind and confidence.
Parents also learn more effective co-parenting skills to make home-life and visitations easier for the children in their care.
The course has been recommended by divorce therapists, coaches, mediators and attorneys as an aid to conflict resolution before, during and long after divorce.
In addition to valuable material to read, you’ll also find insights to help you make better choices as well as video examples, quizzes and exercises. You’ll also find 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.
Recommended or Mandated
Participation in this 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.)

Are you not able to control how you react to things, even though you have tried several different approaches?

Do you find yourself explaining or justifying your aggressive behavior to others?
Do you blame others for enticing you or provoking you to express anger?
Does anger cause you to become destructive?
