West Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) February 26, 2015
Divorce expert Rosalind Sedacca, CCT and co-author Amy Sherman, LMHC, have announced the launch of two new online courses dealing with anger management issues. Anger Management For Co-Parents was created for separating, divorcing and divorced parents. Anger Management To Cope With Life Challenges targets anger issues in the general population.
Both programs teach the skills needed to find more effective ways for reducing conflict and expressing personal feelings.
Knowing how to manage anger can help parents set limits and determine comfortable boundaries in their relationship with their co-parent as well as their children. It is especially important for co-parents who are facing the many life challenges that follow a separation or divorce.
The Anger Management For Co-Parents programs are available in 8-hour and 12-hour formats. The online courses provide signs divorcing or divorced parents should watch for when facing difficult situations. These include “red flag” warnings about problem behavior along with a variety of tools and strategies for taking control of our personal feelings.
“This course will help co-parents find healthier ways of coping with conflict and expressing anger, frustration and other difficult feelings – which will make for more peaceful and rewarding life experiences,” says Sedacca.
To address the broad range of other anger issues that affect men and women during the course of life, Sedacca and Sherman co-created an additional 8-hour program. Anger Management To Cope With Life Challenges focuses on skills for handling conflict between married couples, employees, employers, family members, neighbors and others.
“Anger is a feeling that alerts you that something is wrong. But you have choices regarding how you act upon those feelings,” says Sherman. “Reacting before thinking can lead to mismanaged anger which means you have allowed your feelings to control you. This can easily lead to actions and behaviors you never would have taken if you were making more rational choices.”
Sedacca is founder of the Child-Centered Divorce Network for parents. She is a Divorce and Parenting Coach, author of How Do I Tell the Kids About the Divorce? as well as the Mastering Child-Centered Divorce 10-hr Audio Coaching Program with Workbook. She is also co-host of the weekly Divorce View Talk Show, archived at http://www.DivorceView.com.
Sherman is a licensed therapist in private practice in South Florida. She is also the co-author, along with Sedacca, of 99 Things Women Wish They Knew Before Dating After 40, 50 and Yes, 60! In addition, Sherman is a contributor to Sedacca’s internationally acclaimed ebook, How Do I Tell the Kids About the Divorce?
The Anger Management for Co-Parents course is court mandated in hundreds of counties throughout the United States and includes a final quiz sent to the courts along with a Certificate of Completion. The program can also be taken on a voluntary basis to help parents make better interpersonal relationship choices and master communication skills that diffuse conflict.
The Anger Management To Cope With Life Challenges also includes a final quiz, but answers are not sent to any court.
