No one has ever gotten in trouble for simply feeling anger. It is how anger is dealt with that can cause problems.
Anger is sometimes an appropriate response, but how you channel and manage that anger is critical. Left unchecked, mismanaged anger has the potential for substantial risk, perhaps more than any other emotion. Mismanaged anger can alienate us from people, lead us to do things that we regret, and in some instances, it can lead to aggression and violence.
Anger management is a skill like any other, and it can be learned.
Controlling anger can difficult. By working together, we can address your triggers and identify your beliefs about these triggers. Doing this will help you understand the connection between your thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and the consequences you face. Understanding these connections will enable you to manage your frustration, emotional outbursts, and aggression better.
Our counselors treat anger mismanagement by empowering the client to manage problem solving, relaxation training, mindfulness, communication skills, and cognitive restructuring.
