Who usually attends this program?

What is this program going to do for me that a 10 week program cant?
Technically, no program can do anything for you. It’s very much what you put into it and your willingness to practice strategies and methods taught after the group finishes that makes all the difference. You can even attend a six-month program, but fail to practice the concepts and methods taught and consequently there would be no long-term change.

Do I need to bring anything to the program?
No. You just need to bring yourself and a willingness to learn all you can and have some fun in the process. Morning and afternoon tea is included. Lunch is also included at the Braybrook venue. If the program is run in a CBD venue, there are many delightful cafes for a range of tastes to choose from

Do I need to sit a test?
No, there is no test. It is important however that all participants contribute to discussions and participate in some of the exercises.

When I complete Tame Your Dragon anger management is there something else I can do or a “next level” to follow up?
There are other workshops on this website which will complement the TYD anger management program. Some people also find it useful to follow-up on individual sessions. Others choose to do the program again as they often become more familiar with the concepts and strategies the second time around.

Will I be cured of my anger after this course?
Anger as an emotion is a normal and natural feeling. It generally comes about when you feel threatened in a number of different ways. How you judge people, situations and the world around you also influences the extent of your anger.  You will feel angry at various times and what this program will do is to show you how to regulate it to a level where you can choose more effective ways of expressing it.

Can I pay on the day?
No. There are a number of activities we need to perform to fulfil your registration. General administrative functions, catering needs to be organised, manuals and certificates need to be printed. Expenses for these need to be committed before the program starts. Registration forms need to be submitted and your investments paid by the due date to confirm your place in the course.

Can I do the program twice?
Yes you can attend the program twice and also benefit from the discounted rate.

I’m not good at reading and writing, will this be a problem?
There is no problem. You will still be provided with your manual. Much of the educational component of this program is done via discussions, small group exercises video and on a whiteboard.

Can I bring an interpreter?
Yes you can bring a professional and registered interpreter (no family or friends). Due to limited places within the program, your interpreter or you would also need to accommodate their fee for the program.
