Womens' Anger Management Group
"Transforming Anger into Creativity" - A Group for Women
Anger is an innate force, essential for our survival. It is only when we fail to understand and harness anger that it may turn into aggression. Lack of awareness about anger may result in disrupted relationships with self and others, leading to isolation and helplessness.
Anger has always been considered a male quality. This attitude can leave women feeling unfeminine and unnatural whenever they express anger. Many women try to hide their anger, 'bottling it up' and suppressing themselves. Other women direct anger towards themselves (by over-eating, self-harming, abusing alcohol) - or towards people they see as an extension of themselves, such as their children or partners.
Anger may present itself in many forms. It can become a powerful, uncontrollable rage, a constant frustration about everything, or a lack of energy and joy for life. Anger may affect all areas of our lives, and most importantly it may block our expression, creativity and self-realisation.
