Spring 2017 Groups

The following groups are available for enrolled SFSU students. Please see below for registration information. (Note: Updates coming soon)

Anger Management Group

When anger or violence is the only option that makes sense in a situation time and time again, it is hard to see where the anger is coming from or that it is even anger. In this group we work to move beyond reactions and blaming to the source of what creates anger in your life. If you are ready to end this cycle of suffering, this group can be part of that solution.
