Purpose of the Juvenile Anger Management Course
The four-hour Juvenile Anger Management course is designed to offer a program of discipline to youthful offenders, and consists of self-evaluating topics and self-reflecting sessions related to anger. Its purpose is to decrease recidivism of first time offenders, as well as to instill discipline by presenting behavioral alternatives to anger and providing anger control techniques. It serves as an alternative to the Judges of the Court in lieu of jail and/or prison time, or may be taken voluntarily. This program can aid Juvenile Probation by serving as a condition order of probation, or as a component of a diversion/prevention program.
