I get mad. You get mad. Your Mom gets mad. Your Dad gets mad. Hey, let’s face it, at one time or another EVERYBODY gets mad! Anger is a normal human emotion and it is the way that our minds release mental and emotional pressure (just like that pressure cooker mom has at home!), but sometimes this normal emotion can run amok and lead you astray when the “angries” make us say and do things that we don't really mean. Getting angry is normal, letting anger get the best of you is not. So how do you know if your anger is getting out of control and what can you do about it if you’re raging? Surprisingly enough recognizing and managing anger is relatively easy, at Thrive Counseling we work with children,....

Anger issues stem from how we have been harmed, guilt over someone we have harmed, not receiving something we feel we deserved or receiving something that we didn't want. My approach to anger management is to identify where the anger comes from and work on behavioral changes to identify when the anger comes on and how to avoid the actions that occur during the anger episode. Scripture says a lot about anger and how to apply it to life situations, including how to avoid it.

Adopt a healthy lifestyle You can increase your resistance to anger by strengthening your physical health. • Exercise regularly. Physical activity plays a key role in reducing and preventing the effects of stress. Make time for at least 30 minutes of exercise, three times per week. Nothing beats aerobic exercise for releasing pent-up stress and tension. • Eat a healthy diet. Well-nourished bodies are better prepared to cope with stress, so be mindful of what you eat. Start your day right with breakfast, and keep your energy up and your mind clear with balanced, nutritious meals throughout the day. • Reduce caffeine and sugar. The temporary "highs" caffeine and sugar provide often end.

Anger is usually a more surface emotion for a deeper emotion such as fear or sadness. Anger can be like a flashing light on a dashboard of a car, indicating trouble inside. It is important to learn to diffuse and go to the root of this symptom. Looking at family of origin issues explains anger that many times seems inappropriate for current situations. I believe a person's past is the key to enjoying the present and fulfilling dreams of the future.

Anger usually becomes an issue in one of two ways: either 1) you express your anger explosively and use it as your go-to emotional response for anything that hurts or 2) you do not feel permission to be angry and become passive aggressive, inflicting pain on both yourself and others more subtly. Either way, anger not dealt with is harmful. Together we will get to the root cause of your anger, finding appropriate expressions for your emotions, alleviating emotional build up. Anger can be scary when ignored, but as soon as you turn to face it you take a little bit of your power back.
Kevin Fleming Ph.D.
Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of anger management in a very humane yet fresh perspective. You see, anger is a normal emotion but it is the valence (intensity) as well as the coupling choice of what one does with this that is the problem. Telling someone to "not" do it or modifying behavior with a trite psychological plan that only breeds a compliant response is not the way to change anger. Brainwave optimization is a new cutting edge technology that allows one to rewire circuitry responsible for reactivity driving the anger.

Very often people find that their angry outbursts surprise them (and those around them). This occurs most often because we haven't dealt with the real source of the anger. Clients often try to convince themselves that they are "over it" or that "it doesn't matter" when, in fact, they aren't over it and it does matter. I see this quite a lot in women - who tend to be socialize not to show anger. Therefore it leaks out in more passive aggressive and subtle ways. It's still anger - but it can be inflicted on herself or the true reason for the anger can be veiled making it difficult for others to figure how why there is an outburst.
