DEFUSE: Respect for Self ; Respect for Others
When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail: (Abraham Maslow)
Defuse is a six week program for men who are having problems managing their anger. The group provides participants with a setting that is non-judgemental, understanding and empathic; the three necessary conditions required to encourage the person to remove their protective armour and relfect on their beliefs, values and ways of being that have brought harm to others and themselves.
This group offers men the opportunity to:
Act in ways that are respectful of self and others by becoming more aware or "Mindful" of how their thoughts, emotions, beliefs, memories and inner body experience significantly influence the choices they make when in conflict with others;
If you answer yes to any of the following questions, then Defuse is a program that can help you:
Do you have a short fuse which results in you angrily over reacting to minor problems?
Or do you bottle up your feelings and then eventually blow up like a volcano?
Do you tend to be rigid in your beliefs and opinions and easily get frustrated or angry when people see things differently to you?
Do people walk on eggshells around you?
