Transforming Anger: Tending the Fire

Michael Stone, MA
presented by Leading Edge Seminars, Inc

Friday, April 26, 2013, 9:00 am to 4:30 pm • YWCA Elm Centre, 87 Elm Street, Toronto

Therapists, clinicians, and healers are frequently called upon to help people deal with, overcome, or change their anger. In this workshop, Michael Stone will help us dig deep into this often misunderstood issue to provide new perspectives and ways to help others whose anger, unhappiness, and temperament impede their enjoyment of life and relationships with others. Anger is truly a fire that burns self and others.

Basic assumptions about anger and the attitude of blame that fuels it will be discussed, as will the conundrums about whether anger is something we need to express or overcome. This workshop goes beyond anger management to explore how we can truly enter, take care of, and ultimately transform anger. When anger flares up in clinical practice, we need to stay safe, but caution may not enable us to use the productive energy that can be engendered. What are the productive aspects of anger? How can we enter into our own anger and the anger of our clients without repression that may lead to repeating negative patterns?

This workshop will juxtapose mindfulness techniques, psychological studies, and cross-cultural approaches.

You will learn —

To identify the feelings that lie beneath anger and how can they be accessed safely
What conditions give rise to anger and how we can take care of them when they arise in ourselves and in our clients
How to work with the tendency to “blame out" or "blame in”
Immediate approaches for staying with the fire of anger in the present relational moment
Different approaches with “over-expressers” and “under-expressers”
