Anger management requires a thorough assessment of the patient/client. It is important to understand is roots, underlying issues, triggers and to provide the tools to manage the emotions and behavior. Alternative coping skills are important to address this. Stress management and impulse control training as well as substance abuse issues have to be considered. In some cases, medication can be useful. Individual, marital and family work needs to be considered.

Anger management problems are often due to another underlying problem. Many people "hold in" and stifle their anger again and again - until finally there is a Mt. Vesuvius style eruption. The key is in learning to address issues earlier in the game to prevent the build up of resentment. Susan helps people learn to express their feelings appropriately and to set and maintain boundaries. Many people find that with attention to these new skills, they are able to prevent inappropriate "explosions" of anger. Some people have a history of deeply hurt feelings underlying the anger outbursts, and these feelings need to be expressed and healed to prevent difficulty with anger outbursts.
