Online Course Format

  1. Following the simple registration process (see link below), you will gain access to 9 training modules, each presented via video by Signe Whitson, co-author of The Angry Smile text.
  2. The course is not timed; participants are free to watch the modules on their own schedule, and may re-watch each module as often as desired. It is highly recommended that the modules are viewed sequentially, however, as the course information builds on itself from one module to the next.

  4. Your $150 registration and payment for The Angry Smile Online training also includes a copy of the textbook The Angry Smile: Effective Strategies to Manage Passive-Aggressive Behavior at Home, at School, In Marriages and Close Relationships, in the Workplace & Online.
