Taming My Temper January 2019. Taming my Temper. A course for 11-18 Year Olds. Taming My Temper is a 6-week course for 11-18 year olds which helps participants to learn how to reduce aggressive behaviour, and manage their anger better: - Week 1 is a settling in session, where mental health in its broadest context is looked at and explored whilst participants also undertake registration paperwork and some get to know you activities. - Week 2 looks at anxiety and how it can affect people, introduces some theory around thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and also looks at the cycle of anger. - Week 3 covers what happens to their bodies when they get angry, relaxation techniques including calm and controlled breathing and progressive muscle relaxation; and encourages participants to take a ‘time out’ when feeling anger coming on. - Week 4 participants look at a technique called the anger alligator to help them learn to reduce aggressive outbursts - Week 5 participants learn the RAIN technique to help them to reduce aggressive outbursts - Week 6 sums up everything that has been learnt and some end of course evaluation is undertaken, certificates are presented to participants. Please Note: Participants will only benefit from this course if they wish to be on the course, and are willing to listen and engage with the advice and guidance offered by a Wellbeing Worker during the sessions.
