Anger Impulse Control
This class helps examine the sources of anger and its triggers, and explores ways to bring about behavior changes. Participants will learn new skills to address their concerns.
Active Parenting is a basic parenting class that will help improve, validate or change parenting behaviors. You will also learn how to develop courage, responsibility, and character in your children. Teaching is through discussion, video and the experiences of the participants. Skills needed for children ages 5 through adolescence are included.
More effective management of how we respond to life’s daily and unexpected stresses requires skill building. Identify the signs, symptoms, and sources of your stress and develop a personal plan and skills for managing these responses.
Communication is a basic life skill, as important as the skills by which you make your way through school or earn a living. Being able to appropriately express our wants and needs to others is a learned skill that opens the door to positive changes to our lives.
Building Healthy Relationships
Many people believe once they enter into a relationship it is like being given the keys to a beautiful house but in reality they are given the keys to a construction site and a tool box. The purpose of this training is to provide tools to enhance healthy relationships and educate military personnel and their families about how to successfully nurture intimate relationships by habitually meeting the relational needs and expectations of their partner.
Crossroads of Parenting and Divorce
Crossroads of Parenting and Divorce helps divorcing parents learn how to prevent divorce abuse-a specific type of emotional abuse that they may cause when they lose sight of their child’s needs due to their own anger and bitterness. This seminar will help parents become more aware of how their actions may cause harm to their children, show how to establish positive post-divorce co-parenting relationships, and provide the skills they need to stay child-focused while minimizing poor choices amidst conflict and loss.
