Anger Management

Anger Management

Group and Individual work based on empirically validated research.

  • Do you or does someone you know have a problem with anger?
  • Are you “touchy” or easily annoyed?
  • Do you wish you had more control over your emotions in stressful situations?
  • Do you often regret your actions when you lose your temper?
  • Do you lose your temper easily, sometimes for minor reasons?
  • Do angry outbursts and confrontations affect your relationship with your family?
  • Are you critical and impatient?
  • Have you been told that you need anger management?

Chronic Anger affects us in many ways. It can lead to interpersonal relationship problems, issues with employment, poor decision making, increased risk taking, substance abuse, increase in negative emotional symptoms, and medical problems, such as increased risk for coronary heart disease and stroke.

When we react with anger instead of thinking through our decisions and acting rationally, there’s a negative impact on us and those around us.  However, it is not the feeling of anger itself that is the problem, but rather how we express or hold in this emotion that can lead to negative outcomes.  Anger, when channeled correctly can be a positive and useful tool.

This is an invitation to change the way you experience and act out your anger.

This program will help reduce negative ways you deal with your anger by helping you:

  • Learn relaxation techniques
  • Problem solve social situations
  • Learn new ways to express and deal with anger
  • Avoid pitfalls that can lead back to angry acting out
  • Identify stimuli which can trigger your anger
  • Differentiate your anger from other emotional states
  • Learn the difference between positive and negative anger reactions

Often, people seeking help with their anger are unsure of the type of counseling to seek.  They may look for an anger management class, a group, or individual work around these issues.  Many of my former anger management group participants have found that the thirteen session Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Anger Management Group an extremely effective and efficient way to learn and apply techniques and skills to reduce how they experience and demonstrate their anger.

 


 

“Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.”
