Dear Colleague

Welcome to the fulfilling challenge of teaching Anger and Conflict Management!

Whether you are an employed leader/trainer and will conduct the class as part of your job, or an independent contractor offering the class to various organizations for free or pay, I encourage you to follow this guide blended with your own creative contributions. The guide is geared to help participants derive maximum meaning from their text/guided journal, Anger and Conflict Management: Personal Handbook, in a lively, experiential and safe class atmosphere. Added to that, your unique personality and ideas will make the class come alive!

I developed this class over the latter part of 2002 and early 2003 while teaching it on a regular basis to one group after another as an independent contractor with the North (Clark) County Community Food Bank in Battle Ground, Washington where I live. The classes have been supported by a grant from Washington Mutual Foundation and are very well received. At this writing expansion to nearby communities is being planned. (More on this in the “Outreach” section, later.)

On these pages I offer some tips and ideas--ways to conduct and advertise the class that work well for me.
