Sounds great! Is this course appropriate for Parent/Adult child relationships, too, or primarily for partner relationships?
Hey Jane! This course was prepared with partner relationships in mind. However, I wouldn’t dismiss it as an aid to dealing with adult relationships between people who love each other. Some things will be more applicable than others, but we all struggle with challenges such as controlling our anger.
Hi im very much in need of this but my interests are with peers and family as these issues come up offten.
Can I take the course just myself?
Also, what if I am not the one getting angry at him, but he’s the one who gets super angry at me and the cats? I can have a bad temper but it’s rare, I keep it under control. I am pretty laid back and patient. It takes a lot to really get me seeing red, but when you get me there, oh boy, you probably deserve what’s coming to you. I am nice but even I have my limits. I do get irritated and frustrated though. I mostly get sarcastic and ridiculous, but it doesn’t last long, and it’s not me getting really angry. I get a little crazy when that happens and
I don’t like it. I avoid drama, so I try to avoid situations and people who can get me so furious. My humor helps me out. If I can stay in touch with that part of myself when there is the risk of me losing it, it lets me keep my perspective. I am very funny, so if I can make myself laugh, it’s hard to get all crazy and take things too seriously. I especially never direct my anger at anyone who doesn’t deserve it. in other words, I don’t take it out on anyone who didn’t piss me off. I try to stay logical and not loses my head.
So, this looks like it might be aimed at just the ADHD person. My husband and I would like to do something like this together. Is there also help and direction for the non-ADHD person?
