Anger is an emotional state that we all experience one day. However, its expression and management can vary depending on the individual, one’s community and culture. In this presentation, we talk about how to understand and intervene with someone who is dealing with anger issues. We explore what anger is, traditional Inuit parenting ways of dealing with anger, and concrete strategies for working with youth and families.
