Residential at the college 

“Is society getting angrier or are we less able to handle our anger?”.

This is a question that will be explored during this course in which you will examine what triggers anger and how well we have been conditioned to deal with it, or not. Anger itself is a natural emotion but it is the effect it has on ourselves and others that can create concern. We will also consider if women expressing anger is perceived any differently to men expressing anger. COVID and the many changes this has brought may have impacted on your ability to deal with your emotions including anger. Anger may also be connected to a lower frustration tolerance level, fear, loss and insecurity on many levels. Greater self-awareness will enable insights into better ways of expressing anger.
