Unit 5: This unit eases participants into the communication section of the program which begins with self-talk. Participants build on the notion of the inner voice, how to become aware of it, make friends with it and use affirmations to challenge negative thinking patterns. Both positive and negative self talk are discussed and are related back to anger. The premise is to empower participants to be accountable to their own thoughts. A brief mindful breathing exercise is worked through to demonstrate the simplicity of connecting to our breath. Expected outcomes for participants in this unit are a deepened awareness of their inner voice and how to harness the power of positive self talk and affirmations.

Unit 4: This unit introduces participants to a deeper level of emotional awareness within the context of anger, using anger logs and the anger scale. With these new tools, participants are introduced on how to express anger respectfully. The concept of a “Time Out” is presented to add to the mindfulness toolbox as well as a mindful body awareness exercise.  Expected outcomes of this unit for participants are a broader awareness of anger and to be accountable to what they are feeling using the tool of a time-out.
