Exploring Anger Management: A Comprehensive Workshop
ANGER MANAGEMENT WORKSHOP
Anger is defined as an intense emotion categorised by feelings of stress, frustration and irritation. And, managing anger is integral for people, since it enables them to acknowledge, cope as well as express anger in a healthy and productive manner.
As a part of KIS Health and Wellness Program, an enriching workshop was organised with Fortis Mental Health Department on 10 AUGUST, 2023 to engage the students of Grades 7 & 8 in gaining knowledge about Anger management. The resource person for this session was Ms. Anusha Tyagi, Counselling psychologist and Expressive Arts based therapist at Fortis Healthcare.
The workshop began with an interesting activity, wherein the students were asked to share their own understanding about anger. And, then a detailed discussion took place on the concept of anger, causes of anger, and the consequences of displaying anger towards others.
This was followed by an engrossing activity, wherein the students were asked to express their perspective towards the exemplary situations and the way they responded to the situation showed their style of expressed anger. After this, another intriguing activity was conducted, in which the students were asked to acknowledge the things that makes them angry using art as a medium of expression.
The workshop ended with learning the numerous ways to manage their anger. Overall, this workshop served as an impeccable opportunity for the students of Grades 7 & 8 to augment their knowledge about anger management, in turn developing their personalised anger management tool kit as a whole.
