Handling Anger in the Family

The team at Family Matters York are planning to offer an online course from next week on Handling Anger in the Family. It will look at how as adults we manage our own anger and then how we support our children's feelings of anger. It will involve the presentation of material, whole group discussions and small group activities which will all take place online at the same time, on the same day over four weeks.

Anyone who is interested is asked to contact Family Matters with a preference for one of the following times: 9.00-11.00am; 2.00-4.00pm; or 7.30-9.30pm. They can be contacted on T: 07393 147259 or E:
