In terms of managing your anger, it is important to understand that anger is often the minds' way of protecting you, or of defending you from something. Often, people feel as if they have been a victim of something, and then they will act out in anger because they feel as if they need to protect themselves. If you understand why, it may be easier to get past the point of simply having outbursts.

Anger only is the 'top of the volcano'. What I really find important for my clients is to understand the underlying issues and emotions that fuel the volcano. I am approaching anger management from three angles: 1) Anger is a strong physical reaction and I consider it essential for my clients to learn relaxation practices to stay in touch with their calm. 2)Anger is fueled by destructive and often self-destructive thoughts and I believe that it is very helpful for clients to be able to identify and shift these thoughts. 3) Anger is defensive emotion and it is essential for clients to gain access to their deeper emotions in order to self-soothe.

Anger is a completely acceptable emotion, something every one of us experiences at one time or another. What is not acceptable is when anger escalates to the point of "rage". When anger reaches the that stage the person is being overly reactive to a situation and is acting out of feelings and not his or her rational thinking. When I work with clients with anger management issues I help them to understand that there are ways they can control anger so it doesn't take control of them. By helping clients understand that rage is never acceptable and providing them with strategies for staying in control, clients and their families can have safer, more meaningful, fulfilling relationships.

Appropriately expressed anger is a useful human emotion. Unfortunately, if you are struggling with excessive internal rage & accumulated anger, you can be easily triggered & find yourself out of control. This experience is obviously destructive to others, but you are suffering deeply as well. After lashing out toward loved ones, you are left with feelings of self-loathing & frustration at your inability to control your own emotions. These negative feelings can contribute to more accumulated anger - so the cycle continues. No one wants to live this way. You can choose to bravely explore this vicious cycle of anger. Heal yourself - heal your relationships - heal your life. You can do this!
