Anger Management (100 BMC Southside)

Today Dr. George Smith had his annual talk with the mentees about anger management. I think this session is becoming increasibly more important, as the years go by, because Chicago youth violence is on a steady upward trend. Dr. Smith covered some of the reasons why young African-American males get angry and act out. One can't help but think about honor student Derrion Albert's death at the hands of several Chicago teens in 2009. Dr. Smith also discussed the 13 Steps Toward Anger Management, which includes step 1 Learning to recognize the many faces of anger.

Before our discussion on Anger Management we reviewed Brent Hampton's Life Plan.
Brent took us through his first year life goal, strategy and tactics, as well as his SWOT Analysis.
