Effective Communication & Relationship Skill Building Around Anger & Conflict

Designed for youth ages 11-18, Addressing Conflict and Anger Effectively for Youth is a skills-based curriculum specifically tailored to address concerns and difficulties youth are experiencing around making healthy decisions for themselves as well as how to recognize their emotions, especially anger, and manage them in non-violent ways.

This 8-week class covers such topics as the decision-making process, recognizing and weighing consequences, communication skills, types of power, conflict management, handling authority, the positive and negative consequences of anger, personal anger history, fair fighting, triggers and cool-downs, problem-solving, and much more. Parent/guardian attendance is expected on the 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th nights of the class.

The Conflict Center understands, that throughout a child’s development, parents play a critical role in the development of social and emotional skills. In recognition of this, we have built a parent-involvement component into each of our youth programs. Parents or guardians participate in half of the class sessions, those which focus on family communication and skill-building.

Youth who complete this course will be able to:

  • Identify multiple choices for any one decision
  • Consider potential positive and negative consequences of these choices
  • Stop and think before acting
  • Communicate needs, wants and feelings in a healthy and productive way
  • Understand the difference between passive, aggressive and assertive uses of power
  • Recognize and understand the positive and negative attributes of anger
  • Communicate needs, wants and feelings more assertively
  • Recognize the physiological signs of anger, as well as personal triggers
  • Utilize cooling off techniques to de-escalate their anger
  • Problem solve using the 6-step method
  • Identify realistic alternatives to fighting

Certification of completion issued on last day of class.

PRICE: $180.00 per person for the full series.

When conflict happens in the workplace or people experience inappropriate or difficult behavior at work, relationships are damaged and productivity often suffers.
Workplaces that embrace Restorative Practices have the potential to create a safer, happier and more effective workplace for everyone. Restorative Practices can be used within the workplace both as a preventative measure and to address conflict when it does arise, enabling teams and individuals to work well together.

Restorative Practices can be an effective way to resolve workplace conflict. It involves:
  • bringing together all those affected by conflict
  • providing a safe environment for the expression of perspective
  • allowing participants to come to a shared understanding
  • identifying creative ways to deal with conflict
  • providing opportunities to rebuild damaged relationships and strengthen teams 

Restorative approaches can also be used proactively within the workplace to build strong, positive relationships. Staff meetings, for example, can be focused on building relationships and based around a foundation of mutual respect.
To discuss opportunities to bring this training to your workplace or to customize this training to your organizations needs, please contact Jessica Sherwood at Jessica.Sherwood@conflictcenter.org or call 303.865.5624.
