The inability of people to control or manage their anger has led to several dire consequences for several individuals, families and corporate organizations and even nations. The world has suffered some of its most outrageous and violent crimes against humanity because people could simply not manage their anger.
Although it might sound very simple, managing anger has proven to be one of the most difficult situations for humanity. There is however scientifically proven methodologies which could lead to one positively engaging anger and controlling it. This science of anger management is however new to most African countries although it is very common in the developed world where the court systems have adopted training in anger management as a remedy and for correctional purposes.
Youth Icons Ghana seeing the need for the introduction of such a societal transformational methodology took steps to engage the National Anger Management Association of the United States of America (NAMA) to partner it to bring this body of knowledge to Africa for the first time in their operations as an Association. A meeting was held in March 2014 in the United States of America between the leadership of Youth Icons Ghana and NAMA which has culminated into the January 2015 seminar to be held in Ghana.
Why National Anger Management Seminar?
As earlier expressed in the opening lines of this document, anger could be traced as the sole agent of the several violent conflicts plaguing the world. Many nations have broken up and plunged into decades of civil war due to the inability of major actors in controlling their anger. This has had dire consequences on humans and corporate institutions alike with heavy investments going down the drain. Anger could lead to wrong judgment of situations by individuals, families and corporate organizations.
We read on a daily basis cases and reports of barbaric crimes visited on wives by their husbands and vice versa and sometime on children by their own parents or children on their own biological parents which leaves us wondering exactly what could trigger anybody to commit those atrocities. Anger is the root course of all violent behaviors.
There is every proof that peoples inability to manage their anger because they do not know how to has caused families, individual, corporations and nations massively. To this end Youth Icons Ghana has resolved to lead a crusade by introducing this crucial body of knowledge to Ghana in helping consolidate national peace. The utmost agenda is to provide training to trainers who would then carry out the mission of spreading the training acquired nationally. This has informed the selection of institutions to benefit from the seminar.
Youth Icons Ghana would be soliciting the expertise of the leadership of the National Anger Management Association of the United States of America to provide top notch trainers to lead the seminar as instructors to train Ghana’s first ever anger management professionals.
After the seminar a National Anger Management Association shall be formed to facilitate the multiplication of the knowledge gained through further training.
