Women’s programme

A programme for women to help understand and manage anger
 
About the Programme:

Group Programme: This programme consists of eight-two-hour sessions, looking at behaviours, beliefs and responses to conflict. It aims to help the participants recognize their emotions and provides options for dealing with them. The sessions enable the participants to discover and identify patterns of behaviour that have a negative impact on themselves and those around them, during times of internal and external conflict. The programme runs during the school term time on a Monday morning 9:30 -11:30 at the Kapiti Women's Centre. 

Individual Programme:  We also run an individual programme for women to learn the skills to reduce violence in their life. Individual sessions are run at our office in Sheffield Street.

“But I haven’t got an anger problem!’
Some women hide their anger, some women express it inappropriately, many people believe that women in a nurturing role should be the ones to keep the peace in human relationships. Anger that is not recognized or repressed may lead to depression and anxiety. This course is an opportunity for women to learn about their own anger. Come and learn how to manage anger appropriately for positive change in your life

 
Attitude
The longer you live, the more you will realize the  impact of attitude on life.
Attitude to me is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than what other people, say or do.
Attitude is more important than appearance, than giftedness, than skill. It will make or break a        company, a friendship, a home.
The remarkable thing is, we have a choice everyday, regarding the attitude that we will embrace for that day.
We cannot change our past.
We cannot change the inevitable.
The only thing that we can do, is play the one string we have, and that is our


ATTITUDE
I am convinced that life is 10% what is happening to me and 90%, how I react to it.
And so it is up to you to choose…..
YOUR ATTITUDE
