Why Anger Management

Anger management is a life skill necessary to regulate your angers before they are out of control and may become destructive or harmful to others and yourself. It is hence significant for anyone to pick up this skill and be prepared when angers surface in the daily life or work life. "Be safe, not sorry." This is the mission of our Anger Managemet through Creative Art Therapy.

Why Art Therapy

"Dr. Marian Liebmann argues that clients of all ages will benefit from the art-making process, which helps them to slow down and consider their emotions more calmly. The tangible product of their efforts allow clients to access and react to what they have depicted, providing a lucid and safe framework for better understanding of the causes and effects of their anger." Indeed, art therapy probably touches the inner most emotions depth of a person more than any other form of therapies because art opens up our feelings. 
It is therefore the most effective means for helping angry persons expressing their angers therapeutically, safety and find ways to resolve anger issues.

The art therapist will assist and support the participants appropriately. The art therapist will provide appropriate intervention to treat the underlying issues. Verbal communication is secondary to this creative art therapy  treatment. It is more effective when treated without  verbal (talking) because of authentic self can be ready for long term treatment.
