The Harriet Project Is A Hospital-Based Program for Survivors Impacted by Gun Violence . Wellspring’s Anger Management Series consists of group sessions and activities that assist participants to develop the life skill sets, knowledge, and values necessary to eliminate some of the elements/barriers to success and lessen their likelihood of becoming involved in the legal system or falling prey to being incarcerated.
This series was designed to provide participants with a foundation that will assist them in developing a skill set to have healthy relationships. The skills taught, and information shared will assist participants in making a rational decisions as they are presented with various situations in their daily lives.
Participants will learn that Anger is a natural human emotion and is nature’s way of empowering us to “ward off” our perception of an attack or threat to our well-being. The problem is not anger, but the problem is the mismanagement of anger. Mismanaged anger and rage are the major cause of conflict in our personal and professional relationships. It can cause us to make irrational and irresponsible decisions
This anger management series wills assist participants in understanding the origin what anger and learning techniques and appropriate ways to deal with it, which will help them live a healthier lifestyle.
The participants will be taught how one’s identity development begins with the emergence of a clear sense of self. Participants will explore how race, gender, values, sexuality, and spirituality play into who they are or want to be. The men/women will learn how past trauma affects current behavior choices and behavior. How effects of chemical dependency impact our decision making. They will learn how the past hurt and how we respond to it.
It is expected that we pay attention to the beliefs and values of them and their families about how they find themselves in adjudication and subsequently on probation. We pay attention to the cultural variations of the participant’s and family’s experience and the trauma their response to trauma.
This is an exploration of self and how family structures assist us as we develop throughout our lives. The group is an interactive group designed to help participants become comfortable with other group participants and build a positive self-image. The group can also be restructured to address any pressing issues participants may be experiencing now.
It is our belief with the above services will help participants find their way to a bridge of recovery and living a more happier and healthy lifestyle.
In the culturally informed framework for understanding how to treat or provide intervention services to African American males, we place emphasis on the ethnocultural factors that may affect their attitudes towards their intervention and the reasons for their being referred to such programming, and their responsiveness to the intervention. As we try to help restore a sense of safety through trust-building for the African American participants and their families. We need to be able to attend to the stress of the family and the African American individual in a way that they define the problem while working within and through the family, structure to promote emotional and social support and the utilization of coping resources, as the health and well-being of our African American individuals that are at risk.
