We offer a six week on-line anger management program for men that happens 12 – 15 times a year. The program takes place from 6:30-8:30 pm PST. You can see upcoming dates by scrolling down this page. The group is a safe and supportive place where everyone is treated with respect and dignity. We help men turn their anger into personal growth and maturity.
By attending this group you can expect to:
- Become less reactive, more intentional when the emotions rise up
- Understand the origins of your anger, the effects of abuse, and how to work with it constructively
- Hear what has worked for others in similar situations
- Reduce anxiety, increase connections with others and gain compassion
- Develop a clear plan to deal with difficult situations when they arise
The cost to attend a 6-week group is $660 per person, which includes taxes and a book. To register, you must pay a non-refundable deposit of $160. If you receive IA or disability, you may qualify for a sliding scale fee. If you have already graduated from our program, you can repeat the group for $450 (plus $30 for an updated book). Our drop-in rate is $75 per session (tax included), but it is only available to those who have completed the entire six-week program.
When you join the group, you will receive a book at the beginning. For men, the book is: Lose Your Temper: A Conscious Exploration of Anger, and for women, it’s Healing Anger: Turning Anger into Growth.
All our groups are online.
You can join our groups from anywhere in the world as we are currently conducting them through Zoom. Individual sessions can also be done through Zoom or another platform of your choice. The cost and times are the same whether you join us in person or online, but there is an extra fee for postage if you want us to mail you a book. Most of our participants are from Canada, but we also have people from many other countries join us.
Our group sessions for women focus on healing anger in a safe and supportive environment. Women and men face different challenges when it comes to anger. Men are often encouraged to express their anger while women are judged for it. Women are taught to suppress their anger, which can lead to negative consequences. In our Healing Anger Groups for Women, we offer a safe and supportive space where women can learn to relate to their anger in a positive and constructive way.
The Healing Anger Groups for Women run approximately every 8 weeks and are held online. Our Six-Week Healing Anger for Women group started on Wednesday, January 17th 2024. We will also be running a Graduates aimed Healing Stronger: Healing Triggers group on Thursday, January 25th – February 29th, 2024. Click here to go to the Shop Page to learn more.
This has benefited me so much because I have learned to listen to my partner. I used to think that this cycle of anger would never end. The abused becomes the abuser... but I am ready to end it and become a better father and a better husband.
Taking Alistair's course has allowed me to resurrect my marriage. The key thing is that he will not eliminate your anger, but teach you how to manage it and how to handle stressful situations with your partner. I am now feeling more comfortable on the probability of saving my marriage.
It has helped me in every situation that has occurred since we had class, I recognize the steps and I resolve my situations intelligently.
I understand now that nothing comes from staying in the situation and being angry. I recognize the steps towards anger and I use precautions, it has lowered my stress as it's much easier to become happy again.
I have endured some pretty crazy situations and I have chosen my happiness when I could've lowered myself and chosen the path of sadness and destruction.
Thank you, you have given me tools to add to my belt and take control of my life.
I understand my anger way better than before and therefore have a much better idea of what is underneath it and how to manage it.
I felt very comfortable in the office, very relaxed, and always able to express my honesty without fear or shame. Alistair is very easy to talk to, and I felt a rapport with him right way.
The most important thing that I've learned is awareness. The ability to control my emotions, and the environment around them, simply by being aware. Coming to these sessions has increased my ability to focus on the bigger picture, and what is truly important in life.
I got a shitload of new tools and ideas. Plus, I got to meet some really great people.
