Managing Anger and Difficult Emotions (MADE)
MADE uses a cognitive behavioural therapeutic (CBT) approach that employs personal awareness, relaxation, self-understanding, and communication interventions.
It is designed to help men who struggle with or have struggled with any of the following:
- Communication skills
- Self-defeating behaviours
- Poor impulse control.
The MADE program is designed to encounter a variety of topics such as emotional awareness, understanding automatic response to stressors, quick control strategies, stress management, communication skills, conflict resolution, and problem-solving practices.
MADE offers a highly supportive and engaging learning environment to help men gain a better understanding of personal triggers and thinking patterns underlying difficult emotions such as anger, jealousy, rage, loneliness, and fear.
