SOUTH-WEST people with anger management problems will learn ways to avoid losing control, with the help of two new groups.
The Right Path Consortium is behind the Letting Off Steam anger management groups in Portland and Warrnambool.
The groups will run for four weeks and look at identifying the build-up to an outburst of emotions, understanding flash points, controlling emotional and physical responses and better managing angry emotions.
Right Path Consortium team leader Sybil Braybrook said the sessions were open to anyone who felt they were struggling to control angry feelings.
“Being able to manage anger can be an important step in addressing a myriad of issues that people might be facing,” she said.
The first group will start in Warrnambool on January 15, followed by a similar group in Portland from February 13.
The Warrnambool sessions run from 11.30am-1pm for four Wednesdays from January 15 at the East Warrnambool Neighbourhood House, 17 Fleetwood Court.
The Portland sessions will be on four successive Thursdays from February 13 at Active Health Portland.
The Right Path consortium is led by Western Region Alcohol and Drug Centre, with Glenelg South Grampians Drug Treatment Services and Colac Area Health.
Anyone interested in the groups can contact Ms Braybrook on 1300 009 723.
