The Angry Smile
The Angry Smile course is designed for anyone who lives, works, or interacts with a passive aggressive person and wants to better understand and manage the often-troubling dynamics. The 1-day workshop takes an in-depth look at the roots of passive aggressive behavior in children, exploring masked anger at five distinct and increasingly pathological levels.
The Angry Smile training features the Passive Aggressive Conflict Cycle as well as eight specific skills for responding effectively to passive aggressive behavior. The course trains participants in a six-step process for confronting and changing passive aggressive behaviors in the long-term, using extensive discussion, video examples, and role play.
