              Difficulties in acknowledging, processing and being with others’ anger abounds in our society generally and can be experienced by practitioners. I believe that these difficulties originate from a range of misunderstandings about its nature.
              I present theoretical models which invite personal exploration and dialogue, supporting practitioners to deepen their understanding of their own anger and rage processes which in turn support their work with clients. A sense of community is fostered which helps to dissolve cultural, familial and professional shame about these issues.
      Some crucial principles that underpin the models
      • Anger and rage …
      ź are different psychological and emotional processes and have different aetiologies
      ź have different relational needs and require different interventions
          and, most importantly,
      ź require a relational approach





      This training offers


      ź theoretical models that deepen understanding and processing of anger and rage issues; includes a brief intervention model
      ź clarification of how cognitive and relational therapy models support or hinder work with clients
      ź small and large group discussions which enable participants to explore their personal and professional experience of, and relationship to, anger and rage
      ź opportunities to integrate learning through skills practice
      ź a supervision slot for the exploration of workplace and practice issues

        Previous participants’ comments

        'Valuable learning….exciting and fun training…very useful models, superb applications…...found others’ ideas stimulating and challenging…..explored anger in more depth than I ever have before…..excellent content and delivery, style...good to have well defined and clear models….I went away with my mind buzzing (which I have to say hasn't happened for a long time, CPD can be a bit bland), but your workshop was so thought provoking and energetic... ….excellent


        Implications for practice

        'Lots of really useful information I can translate into practice.....the distinction between anger and rage is really useful. hugely informed my understanding of anger and rage and what my angry and/or rageful clients need in relationship with me…the concept of ‘cold rage’ is one that explains so much for me personally and for some of those I work with.... really useful underscoring of my work, but also new ways of working specifically with anger and rage; and a reminder that I’m actually doing ok'

                                 Final word

        'This is very important work…..the best workshop I’ve ever been to.'
