Women who are struggling with anger can learn how to take back their own power and find more peace in a local support group.
Respecting Anger in Women (RAW) meets from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on select Thursdays at Believe Counseling Services at 8841 N. 1st Street, Suite B. The group offers a series of psycho-educational sessions where women learn and practice skills including a processing component where thoughts/cognitions, emotions and behaviors in specific situations are deconstructed and reconstructed, said Theresa De Armond, a licensed professional counselor who leads the group. Women may join the group at any time but are asked to commit to at least six sessions in order to gain the full benefits. Before coming to a session, you must undergo a 10 to 15-minute phone consultation in order for De Armond to learn more about you and whether the group might be a good fit for you.
The group helps women examine their anger, commit to self-care and take back the power anger has stolen from them. Learn how to use mindfulness, to identify personal triggers and how to better manage your anger responses internally and towards others.
The group costs $40 per session or $216 if paid in advance for six sessions. Insurance may be accepted. The next session will be held on Thursday, Jan. 9. To register and learn more, visit believeinyourtruth.com.
