Parent and Child Communication
To empower the participant(s) with the knowledge that anger is an emotion that can be mastered. Frustration is also an emotion that is often time misunderstood as a situational concern. Understanding the cause and resolving the cause will remove the stress felt in frustration. Knowing that low self-esteem, negative thoughts, lack of self-worth, survival guilt as it relates to PTSD can all be triggers for veterans or non-veterans following incarceration. Choosing to cease from hurting the ones' you love and letting go of the unforgiveness is the first step to the rebuilding of one's inner peace and their family relationships. Practicing the skill of forgiveness of oneself and apologizing to those that were hurt, does restore the natural healthy well-being for one's body, mind and spirit. This class is provided pre-release in the correctional facility to inspire and motivate the participant to reach from within themselves in attaining their short term goals and positive cognitive-behavior skills one step at a time in managing their anger/frustration.
