If you have become aware that your anger has been hurtful to others or to yourself, it is so important to learn how to channel all that raw emotion into something constructive instead of destructive. Anger management involves learning to recognize the emotional triggers that cue an anger response, change the behaviors through changing the thought patterns underneath and address the underlying emotions that fuel the anger.

Anger is a problem when it is too intense, frequent, lasts too long, or impacts relationships at work or home. Drawing from anger research, an understanding of emotions, and years of working with court-referred angry people, we've created a respectful and effective series of anger management courses designed to help clients understand the roots of their anger. Clients will identify toxic and useful forms of anger, disrupt long-established patterns of escalation, deal with wounds and resentments from the past, replace aggressiveness with assertiveness, overcome feelings of shame, and gain confidence in newly acquired skills that work. Change is possible!

All of us experience anger from time to time. It is a normal, commonly experienced emotion. However, anger can be incredibly destructive if we do not know how to control it. Frequent or misplaced anger can hurt our reputation, destroy our relationships, limit our opportunities, and damage our physical health. Acknowledging that anger has become an issue is the first step. Getting help is the second. I have worked with individuals and groups helping them to first identify, acknowledge, and then manage their anger for many years. I will help you gain the emotional skills and tools needed to control and manage your anger and help you to live a more harmonious life. Please feel free to call.

Everyone feels anger throughout their life. The challenge is discerning what things are worth getting angry over and what are not. Many people try to manage their anger but never take the time to find the root cause of their anger. The root cause can be something that recently happened to them or it can be an unhealed past trauma that is being re-triggered at the present time.

Activating the fight-flight system is the single most challenging factor in managing anger, stress, & interpersonal conflict. When anger stems from childhood trauma, EMDR may be useful. When it originates from an over-active limbic system (e.g, in ADD), neurofeedback and/or medication may be indicated. Regardless of the source, some crucial elements are: learning an effective relaxation/self-soothing method, knowing how to check one's pulse so that time-out can be taken to use the self-soothing tools to calm down when elevating (rather than after full escalation), and employing a cardio exercise program. A good Mindfulness practice can be beneficial as well for those who are so inclined.

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.

Anger is a protest emotion, it can be empowering. Without anger we would never be motivated to put a stop to certain behaviors, civic injustices, or stand firm against abuse. However, anger becomes a problem when it harms you or others. Anger is often a secondary emotion, masking hurt, frustration or fear. Ask yourself what your true feelings are and learn to express your needs without striking out. ANGER IS NOT A PROBLEM SOLVING TOOL.

Anger is not wrong. How we hurt others or ourselves in anger is damaging. I work with clients to release their anger and frustration in healthy ways prior to interacting with anyone. We then work on how to release tension and understand their feelings so that when they discuss challenges they do not re-ignite and exacerbate the sitaution. We explore the cycle of anger and violence and create saftey measures so this cycle is altered. Self-responsibility is critical. We work on body relaxation, visualization, and breath work to help the client understand their body and utilize it more effectively.

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Santa Ana, CA

While anger is a healthy emotion, it can be unleashed in a very unhealthy manner. Learning tools for effective expression and communication can allow your anger to be heard and understood. Without good communication skills and methods of coping, it often feels as though one is up a creek without a paddle. Good intentions can be hijacked. I will increase your awareness and understanding of the triggers and physical cues that are fueling your anger thus allowing you to make different choices. Together, we will uncover distorted patterns of thinking and reacting, learn new techniques of responding and restore your confidence and personal dignity.

Anger is only the "tip of the iceburg." Talking with a professional therapist will help give you insight into what is really at the core of your anger. Many do not realize that anger is actually a "mask" for many other emotions. Anger can also be "stored up" through a person's lifetime. Once you admit you are angry, then the journey begins to find out what, why, who and how. Becoming aware of the life events either in your past, or currently that you might be struggling with is the beginning of emotional freedom. We are not meant to spend our lives angry. Discovering more about yourself, your emotions, and anger will be the beginning of a journey of freedom from emotional bondage.

Rightful anger has an important place in life where and when it must be expressed. However, there are many forms of anger that are internally destructive and can become externally dangerous to ourselves and others. Some forms of anger come from long term contentious relationships and occurrences which can never go away or decrease in pain and agitation. Some forms of anger are explosive on the moment and other anger comes as a gradual escalating irritation that then reaches its limits. Counseling serves to teach skills of anger management and can defuse and even prevent out of control anger from erupting. Counseling is known to be very effective for addressing and safely controlling anger.

Anger Management

DeAnn Richter, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Santa Ana, CA

Anger is a normal emotion. Mild forms of anger may include displeasure, irritation or dislike. When we react to criticism, threat or frustration we may become angry - and usually this is a healthy response. Anger may be a secondary response to feeling sad, lonely or frightened. When anger becomes a full-blown rage our judgment and thinking can become impaired and we are more likely to do and say unreasonable and irrational things. Work with me and we will learn new ways to handle the way you express your anger. Together we will work with your judgment of life events so you will express yourself in a more reasonable way.

Anger is a normal emotion that we all feel, however if your anger is interfering with you relationships at home or at work it is important to get help. Destructive anger is often a mask for feeling of helplessness, poor self image, and depression that can be traced back to our earliest relationships. I will help you to identify the roots of your anger and take specific steps to handling situations differently. You can learn to talk about your feelings and needs without attacking. You can learn to hear disagreement from your partner or co-workers without feeling defensive. I have worked with anger issues all my professional life and I can help.

Anger work is a psychological tool which is used to heal from past and present emotional pains. The basic premise of Anger Work is to let go of emotionally painful events by focusing on them and expressing anger about the pain. By focusing on the trauma over and over, the pain will gradually go away, never to affect you again. (Specific, hands-on techniques are discussed later in this article) A comparison can be made between our physical health and our emotional health. When the body experiences a severe laceration or other injury, if the wound is left unattended it will get infected. Eventually, it will fester and may even turn into gangrene, a life threatening condition. If, however, the wo....

Anger has always been a difficult emotion. We all have it at time throughout our lives; but, don't always know how to express it in a healthy way. It's natural to blame someone or something outside of ourselves for the anger we feel. I help my clients to allow, accept and own their anger. It's OK to feel angry, but it's NOT OK to take it out on others. I teach skills and provide tools that empower my clients to focus on what is going on WITHIN themselves. If not dealt with, particular feelings and emotions about various painful interactions or events in our lives have the capability of re-surfacing in unhealthy ways. I help to re-regulate and break this pattern.

Clients often tell me their relationship to anger catches them or the important people in their lives by surprise. They report going from zero to sixty before they can harness their frustration in a way that is not hurtful to themselves or those they love. When I work with clients who want to change their relationship to anger, we first open up dialogues about their unique manifestations of anger and the effects it has on their life. We then might explore times when anger didn't get the best of them and inquire about the context in which that was possible. Anger can be tricky but through careful exploration, working in therapy, clients can change their relationship to anger.

Learning to respond in a way you can feel proud of is something that is not only possible, but if you are motivated, can change easily. After determining the root of your anger, we can work together to change the behaviors and after effects of your rage.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

I have found that formal anger management classes provide excellent tools, but that most of those tools go out the window when emotionally provoking events occur. I help people work out the underlying feelings that trigger anger that has been out of control. But I also help people use their anger effectively. Many persons are angry and are not aware of it and they could effectively utilize their anger towards constructive ends. Anger is merely a signal that something is wrong, etc. Thus, the anger is not the problem, it is what you do with it. I will help you "manage" your signals of anger in more effective ways through each phase of the process.

Frustration and anger are normal parts of the human experience, but when they become chronic, uncontrollable, and hurtful, they can do untold damage to relationships, families, and ourselves physically. I work with patients to understand the roots of anger, and to develop strategies for anger management by facilitating recognition of hurt, helplessness, and lack of control that underlie rage and excessive anger. Healing comes both from clear introspection and also the use of effective tools to better express hurt, anger, and need.

If you and your partner are feeling emotionally disconnected, you may find yourself drawn into repeated arguments with each other about seemingly unrelated issues -- such as money, parenting, chores, and sex. Hiding within these disagreements are painful questions: Can I reach you? Do I matter to you? Can I count on you if I need you? Once these deep, hidden questions are calmed, and you both feel safe and loved, you and your partner will find it much easier to resolve other issues.

Often our relationship with anger can transform from 'management' to recovery, when we allow ourselves to work through the themes that generated the anger in the first place. Anger keeps us stuck and directs too much of our energy in a non-productive manner. I can help you work it through so your energy can flow in a more profitable direction. An internal shift of this type and magnitude can represent the difference between getting through life with anger and resentment and fully enjoying your life.

Anger is a healthy expression of emotion. When anger and rage become the dominating emotion that rules our actions, a potentially serious problem exists. When this occurs we feel out of control, even frightened by the intensity of feeling. Scared by life altering actions and repercussions. We become lost and confused. We know this is not me but yet it is. This mystery is solvable. Sometimes when negative experiences happen we hide and bury them, We do this so well we forget why the anger is there. Over the years these experiences multiply, fester and grow. A time bomb waiting to be triggered. We can help you unearth the issues, defuse and help you to dismantle the bomb. Call! We can help.

Anger is a response to life situations and having alternatives to responding can be important to whether or not that response is physical and or verbal. We all get angry at things but having some tools to respond to any situation can have a tremendous impact on the consequences. Our clinical team will help our patients make a determination what tools to use for any situation they might and will run across in their daily life.

Anger is a feeling that we all have experienced. However, when we have a difficult time controlling angry outbursts or when we become physically or emotionally abusive, we need to get help. Uncontrolled anger can push the people we love away, and ultimately lead to painful feelings of guilt and/or shame. Let us look at what has happened in your early relationships, that has contributed to your inability to control your anger and find other, more healthy ways for you to manage.

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.

Anger can be a powerful emotion. Many times, it stems from unresolved pain. You see, if we choose not to feel sad or pain in our lives and think it will just go away, this does not work long-term. What tends to happen is that the feelings will leak out, usually as anger. I can show you the tools to not only manage your anger but also realize where it may truly be coming from. Please do not let your anger get the best of you.

Anger is a human emotion that when used constructively can be a catalyst for change. There is positive anger that elicits change and progress, and there is negative anger that promotes stagnation. I have conducted anger management workshops, and worked with individuals on effective expressions of anger. I use it in therapy to help my clients move towards their goal.

In our sessions, you will never be shamed for being angry. Together we will listen to what the anger is doing to your body, what it does to your relationships, what it was that triggered you. Many of us grew up being bullied or teased. Some among us bully others in return. Anger has been so misused, that many of us wary of and afraid of becoming angry. We buried anger so as to not be like those men who hurt people (like us when we were children). Big mistake. In our passivity and avoidance we have left women unprotected. It is our avoidance and passivity that actually ends up frightening women. Strength offered in a relationship to protect others freedom will be honored and encouraged.

We believe people are highly influenced or shaped by certain factors they may have encountered in their lives. For those struggling with maladaptive behavioral patterns, these factors can be traumatic experiences, unhealthy relationships with others, and faulty messages that they interpreted from people in their lives. Therefore, working towards understanding and accepting past experiences as well as changing unhealthy thinking patterns to more rational and positive ones are significant aspects of our therapeutic work.

Clinical Psychologist, Marriage, Family & Child, Hypnosis

Anger expressed in raw form, typically is destructive to relationships and hurts reputations. Raw anger can harm others and results in property damage, jail time, loss of children, divorce, or unemployment. In contrast, anger can be presented in honest but thoughtful ways, leading toward problem-solving and closer relationships. Each explosive angry moment is different. Each person vexed with chronic anger requires different tools and interventions. In order for an angry person to become calm, clear, trustworthy or even reliably loving -- deep work with past abuses, injustices may need reworking. Learning verbal skills & impulse control, help too. DrCarolFrancis.com and 310-543-1824.
