Taming my temper

Mid-Kent Mindare pleased to share that the Peter Harrison Foundation have generously funded our next Taming My Temper course, meaning that this course will be available for free to young people who may benefit from this support.

Taming My Temper is a 6-week course dealing with anger management specifically designed for young people that may have issues controlling their emotions and want to reduce the levels of anger and hostility that they display.

This course, which starts on the 8th October, looks at the causation of negative emotional behaviour and the anger response displayed by people. It then looks at ways to minimise negative emotions and alternative ways to cope and remain calm.

Over the six-week programme, young people will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge, develop their coping mechanisms and increase their confidence – leading to increased wellbeing and resilience.

There is no pre-requisite for this course, so any young person who may benefit can be referred onto this programme.

HeadStart Kent Digital MHFA Training

HeadStart Kent have funded Youth Mental Health First Aid training and Online Training for any individuals who work with young people across Kent. The training is aimed to better empower those who work with young people with the tools and knowledge to make a positive difference to the mental health of the young people they work with.

Courses focus particularly on spotting the signs of potential ill mental health within a young person, and encourage a proactive response – in the similar way physical first aid would be applied proactively.

Utilising Cognitive Behavioural Coaching, peer interaction support, self-discovery exercises, relaxation techniques and task setting, the course enables participants to:

Explore anger in its broadest context and improve awareness.

Understand anger and how it can affect people, introducing theory around thoughts, feelings and behaviours, encouraging participants to explore their own emotions

Learn about different cognitive styles and how these can have an impact upon life

Learn different techniques to improve relaxation

Understand emotional responses and how these can be better managed

Understand stress and the role it plays in negative emotional responses

Explore life-long coping strategies to maintain wellbeing

Our next courses are available for FREE thanks to the generous funding of the Peter Harrison Foundation. You can find the available dates listed below.

This course is for young people between the ages of twelve and seventeen.
