resolving anger

Talk Description

"Anger is a powerful emotion. It can be a catalyst for positive change, but anger can keep us stuck if we leave it unresolved. So how do we move forward?

"This talk teaches us how to resolve anger by evaluating its sources and expressing it in healthy ways.  It also shows us how to harness anger as a force for good without us needing to be in control.  By changing how we relate to anger, this emotion becomes an ally – rather than an enemy – in our interactions with others."

As a professional in the field of social work, I found Thomas’ emotional health training to be very helpful and timely with regards to my own journey. His talks on managing fear, anger, shame, and perfectionism are especially helpful for community leaders and helping professionals who themselves need support as they give a lot to others. Overall, I would highly recommend Thomas to any community group or non-profit organization seeking to be happier and healthier in what they do. You won’t want to miss out!
