What It Is and Does 

Welcome to the course, “Anger Storms” by The Center for Bold Action. Anger is a common emotion that can be troublesome for the person who is angry, unpleasant (or worse) for those nearby, and no fun at all if anger is directed to yourself. Being a bit angry on occasion is normal but does not need to be disruptive. 

This course can help you in these ways: 

► Builds confidence. Anger is powerful but you’ll learn to be even stronger. 

► Eases relationships. Anger does not need to cause tension between you and others. 

► Lessens anxiety. The source of anger is not a mystery. You’ll learn what to do about it. 

► Strengthens self-control. You can understand anger and know what to do about it. 

► Implants boldness. It helps you effectively to side with righteousness and resist evil. 

► Increases resilience. You’ll know how to calm an angry person. 

► Broadens insight. The course will help you understand the anger shown by other people. 

► Empowers love. Redeem your side of an anger-stained history with another person. 

Most of the 65-minute, 6-session course discusses anger as if you are the angry person. It also shows how to manage an angry person. Anger works the same for everyone. Everything you learn about the causes and actions of your personal anger helps you understand other people when they are angry.

How to Get the Most From the Course 

Watch each section three times before moving on. You’ll get more information each time and more useful personal applications. The personal applications are the most valuable part. Hold your arms out and be ready to receive. Better yet, pray before you watch and open your mind and heart ready to receive whatever God has for you as delivered by His humble servant. 

In addition to information, the course is likely to affirm you (hey, you ain’t all bad), offer new or forgotten insight (it may clear up a mystery or confusion), prompt a self-rebuke (we all need it sometimes), and lead to a plan (that makes it possible to see your progress). The goal, yours and mine, will be that you become fully comfortable with who you are “inside your own skin” and in relationships with others, even when anger happens.
