Penn Foundation offers virtual Anger Management Group

Penn Foundation is offering a virtual Anger Management Group for adults on Tuesdays from 6 to 7 p.m., beginning May 12. The group will run via Zoom for 11weeks through July 21. All insurances accepted.

As individuals isolate at home during COVID-19, there has been a significant increase in domestic violence in the United States and around the world. Women Against Abuse, Philadelphia’s leading domestic violence agency, has reported a 30% increase in calls. This increase is attributed to several factors – general anger about the pandemic, individuals returning to abusive partners due to job loss and financial concerns, people scared to leave an abusive situation during this uncertain time, and more.

This group will help individuals learn strategies for effectively managing anger and conflict situations. For more information, contact Dwayne Henne, LCSW, at 267-404-5916 or
