Our anger control program works to help our clients Identify the triggers of their anger. Anger is a natural and normal response to life’s irritations. Anger can become a problem if it explodes out of control, leads to problems, or is felt too often. It is important to explore the negative feelings and behaviors associated with anger so that we can show you how to respond to it in a healthy manner.
Our program consists of evidence-based curriculum and skills development. We teach our participants that anger is a secondary emotion, usually instigated by other feelings such as rejection, sadness, or fear. Often, people with anger issues try to suppress their feelings and this can lead to wild emotional outbursts and health problems. The key is learning how to control reactions so that anger is not expressed in a negative or violent way.
Participants will be encouraged to think about how they experience anger and identify the roles anger has played in their past. We will walk through the changes the body goes through when someone becomes angry and learn how to develop an anger plan to stay out of difficult situations.
