WHOA (Why Hang Onto Anger) Online Course.
Managing Emotions – Anger management is not really about being angry or upset, but HOW we lose our tempers After all, anger is a normal, healthy emotion. How we INTERPRET any given situation makes the difference in how we REACT. To complete this course, parents are required to do an activity entitle History of the Heart: a personal timeline, a birth story and a life story.
The WHOA course is based in research from existing evidence-based programs such as Positive Parenting, Active Parenting, STEP and Breakthrough Parenting. We introduce parents to TED Talks and current research as well as discuss the application of Psychosocial researchers such as Jean Piaget, Alfred Adler and Erik Erikson. Think of it as a 101 college course: human development and social/emotional development of parenting in a democratic family.
