Event description
Transforming Anger: A Three Day Experiential Process for Therapists

About this event

OVERVIEW

This 3-day workshop will deepen awareness for anger as an expression of love and justice or as destructive and controlling. We will rescue anger as a transformative resource, as we explore the necessary supports for healthy and life affirming anger in our personal experience and in our work. We will also grapple with the political dimensions of anger that seeks to change the world.

BACKGROUND

The media confront us daily with stories of the impact of anger. Domestic violence, aggression towards minorities, and the destruction of the environment are endemic. No matter how remote we are from this violence, we are impacted by the harm it causes. We often feel powerless in the face of those who unleash their rage.

For each story of violence and destruction, there can be another anger stirring. This anger is born of grief. It is a refusal of injustice, a call for protest and a demand for change. How can we distinguish the anger that destroys from the anger that transforms?

At the local and interpersonal level, anger is ever-present. Much of what stirs in our bellies and disrupts our sleep often has something to do with anger (be it resentment, frustration, rage, or despair) and a poor relationship to this complex feeling. Feeling anger in our relationships, work, family life, reactivity to government decisions and inaction are all part of the necessary mechanism for navigating the world. Anger can therefore support compassionate boundaries, protective behaviours and justice.

As therapists we are often required to work with our clients' problematic relationships to feelings, experiences, and expressions of anger. As therapists we also struggle with these issues. How do we respond? Do we respond generously (attune) to the anger of our loved ones and clients? Do we attend to our own feelings of anger toward people in our care? How courageously do we advocate and agitate for change? How compassionately is irritation made explicit (worked with) in the dialogic space - here-and-now?
