We also offer a DV Prevention & Anger Management Awareness for Couples Program. The purpose of this program is to educate and help couples deal with issues that cause major distress in the relationship. Domestic Violence may start off with negative verbal comments that may turn assaultive towards one another. Then, mental and emotional stressors of the relationship are added to feelings of anger, hurt and resentment between the two. Over a period of time, the relationship continues to get worst and the last resort is physical and violent. All the while, the domestic violent type behaviors began with the negative verbal comments and/or the mental and emotional stressors in the relationship. We want to help prevent abuse and encourage the awareness of the behaviors that lead up this unfortunate event.
DV Prevention & Anger Management Awareness for Couples- $150.00 per couple session 1x per week for 6 weeks (2-hour session); Assessment/Intake (two assessments) $200.00.
We provide anger management group/individual sessions weekly. Intake/Assessment rate is $100.00. Group/Individual rates are $50.00 per week per person for 12 weeks.
Anger Management Outline
Our program is designed for adolescents and adults that deal with anger issues.
