Course format

‘Effective Anger Management’ is based on our one-day seminar of the same name. This online version is split into 4 modules, each of which are broken down further into different sections containing filmed lectures given in English by the tutor, Joe Griffin.

Each film clip is followed by a short series of multiple choice questions. These are designed to help you think about and absorb the course content and to check that you have understood the main points of that section before proceeding to the next.

There are also course notes for you to download, plus additional reading information and helpful links.

You can take as long as you like to work your way through the course and can view it as many times as you like.

Once you have completed the course, you will receive a CPD certificate, which counts towards the Human Givens Diploma.

CPD Provider LogoThis course has been independently accredited by the internationally recognised CPD Standards Office for 6 hours of CPD training.

Reviews for this course

5/5 (11 Reviews)
  1. Melanie Kettner-Borough, Pastor/counsellor

    I found this course more informative and important than I had expected. The psychological, physiological and social aspects were really interesting. Thank you so much. Joe was amazing. Can’t believe he can talk for so long with such intreguing helpful stories.

  2. Lise Bratton, Editor, designer, artist

    Despite a short break from following the Part 1 online courses, I was happy to find that my grasp and understanding of the Human Givens model and its relevance to everyday life is continuing to grow. This excellent, well-structured Anger Management course brings much of what I’m learning into context through practical examples and case histories: reflective listening, re-framing, the potential of the observing self. Useful in my personal life as well as my working relationships. Really good! Thanks.

  3. Elizabeth McBarnet, Independent Speech and Language Therapist

    For me, this has been the best of the diploma courses so far. It has changed my whole outlook: relationships with returning adult offspring and husband were being tested in week 6 of Covid-19 lockdown. Together, we learned to change our language; listen reflectively; reframe situations and look at how we could meet each-others’ emotional needs. This course is a tool for life, not just as a HG professional. Thank you!

  4. Joan White, Psychotherapist.

    I really appreciated this learning experience. I felt it was almost as good as being at the seminars. Joe’s delivery was clear and confident, obviously based on his experience and research. I know I shall make great use of the concepts.

  5. Eileen Scott, wellbeing therapist

    Enjoyed the course and have successfully used the material in my work with good results. Joe did not disappoint , delivery and presentation were excellent. Thanks

  6. Felicity

    Without doubt, the best of all the online courses I’ve done. Fascinating, relaxed delivery and so important!

  7. Emma

    I thoroughly enjoyed this course and found the information very useful in enhancing my work as well as applying in my personal life.

  8. Victor

    Human Givens courses are each part of a mosaic which builds up with each course to provide a comprehensive view of human needs and resources. Each course however, tackles an area and looks at the human fundamentals from the point of view of one or more problems which adversely affect human beings. Effective Anger Management throws an interesting and useful light onto anger and its management in oneself and in others. As is often the case, I found that more pieces of the jigsaw of what it means to be human fell into place and more of the picture comes into view. And more importantly, one acquires useful techniques for life and in this case, for anger management.

  9. Doreen

    Having done several courses over the years on handling aggression, I was surprised at how much I could learn from this course. Loads of useful information and practical strategies.

  10. Lisa

    I was impressed with the holistic vision of human beings as evident in the human givens approach. The content of your lectures are very clear and well illustrated.

  11. Ellen

    I appreciated the enormous amount of relevant and up-to-date information which was presented in a very palatable way – with humour too! Presentation made a lot of sense, was jargon-free and made me rethink some of my previous work in this area with clients – time for an update! I was never bored or lost focus! Thank you for such a stimulating and thought-provoking course.
