I use cognitive behavioral approaches to help patients learn to manage anger. Cognitive approaches means learning to view anger arousing situations in more constructive ways and a behavioral approach means learning new behaviours and new ways of reacting to situations in a more flexible manner. I also help patients fully express and understand the reasons why they reacted angrily in the first place.

Anger is a normal human emotion that can be aroused when we feel threatened or those we care about are threatened. The feeling of anger serves a purpose in increasing our energy and empowering us to defend ourselves against an attack or other perceived danger. Anger can become problematic when people fail to act responsibly in how they express this emotion. As a result anger is often viewed as a negative or bad emotion. At Capital Counseling, our anger management services aim to develop a set of skills that responsible people use to address the perceived threat in a manner that resolves the issue constructively without creating damage or harm.

I work it down with verbs. Instead of I' m hungry enough to eat a horse, I can pet it, water it, groom it, talk to it, or ride it. Riding it is better for me than overeating because I'm a little mal nourished as it is. Horsemeat might not.be good for. you. It's too tough. So, for the purpose of anger-reduction, riding is better. I suppose the main tenet is to relax when feeling angry, and try real hard not to blame the horse. He doesn't know any better!
