Effective Communication & Relationship Skill Building Around Anger & Conflict

Designed for youth ages 11-18, Emotional Intelligence & Critical Decision Making is a skills-based curriculum specifically tailored to address concerns and difficulties youth are experiencing around making healthy decisions for themselves as well as how to recognize their emotions, especially anger, and manage them in non-violent ways.

This 8 week class covers such topics as: the decision making process, recognizing and weighing consequences, communication skills, types of power, conflict management, handling authority, the positive and negative consequences of anger, personal anger history, fair fighting, triggers and cool-downs, problem solving, and much more. Parent/guardian attendance is expected on the 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th nights of the class.

The Conflict Center understands, that throughout a child’s development, parents play a critical role in the development of social and emotional skills. In recognition of this, we have built a parent-involvement component into each of our youth programs. Parents or guardians participate in half o the class sessions, those which focus on family communication and skill-building.



Youth who complete this course will be able to:

  • Identify multiple choices for any one decision
  • Consider potential positive and negative consequences of these choices
  • Stop and think before acting
  • Communicate needs, wants and feelings in a healthy and productive way
  • Understand the difference between passive, aggressive and assertive uses of power
  • Recognize and understand the positive and negative attributes of anger
  • Communicate needs, wants and feelings more assertively
  • Recognize the physiological signs of anger, as well as personal triggers
  • Utilize cooling off techniques to de-escalate their anger
  • Problem solve using the 6-step method
  • Identify realistic alternatives to fighting


Certification of completion issued on last day of class.

PRICE: $100.00 per person for the full 8-week series.

We keep our classes small with 8-16 participants in each class to maximize time for sharing personal experiences and to ask questions as needed.
