Self Awareness (HUB)

The Self Awareness Program (formerly known as Youth Anger Management) is a cognitive behavioural based, skill development program for at-risk youth.  The program supports youth to develop awareness of their inner world, to cope positively with challenging moods, to communicate effectively, to reduce stress and to take responsibility for their actions.

The goal of the program is to teach youth skills that will assist them in dealing with challenging situations and better manage their emotions.

Modules include:

  • Understanding Emotions
  • Understanding Anger
  • Agression and Hostility
  • Non-Violent Communication
  • Stress Reduction
  • Actions and Consequences

Selection of module(s) and sub-modules to be used is determined through an interview, an assessment of risk/need and review of supporting documentation, in collaboration with the client’s identified goals.

The program is up to 6 modules in length offered one to two times per week and each module is 1 hour in length.

Hours of Operation:  Monday to Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Evening appointments available upon request.)
