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.

I have extensive experience working with anger management. While working in rehab, I provided two groups per week regarding anger management. Anger can be a difficult emotion that can lead to inappropriate verbal and physical outbursts. It can be difficult for parents to deal with when their children are destroying objects or hurting one another, or themselves. Children also tend to copy how parents express anger. I have worked with many parents who are worried about their children becoming verbally aggressive, only to find that they themselves have difficulty expressing anger appropriately. Treatment for anger involves recognizing physical symptoms, thinking, and patterns of behavior.

EMDR and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy are both effective research-supported approaches in helping individuals identify express their anger appropriately and/or work through unexpressed anger that is negatively affecting ones mood, behavior, or relationships. Both Gottman Couples Counseling and Emotion-Focused Couples Counseling focus on identifying and learning how to express anger in ways that are constructive, as well as understanding ways of expressing anger that damages romantic or parent-child relationships.

Anger is a tough emotion. It feels so real and raw in the moment, that we forget that it’s simply a defense mechanism. As human beings, we like to feel powerful. Vulnerable emotions are dangerous. Sadness, fear, jealousy, hurt, and betrayal make us feel weak, so what do we do? We try to look strong, scary, and powerful. Anger is the most efficient way to do this. If we can sit with our more vulnerable feelings and care for them, we are able to see our anger evaporate. We’ll work together to create a safe space for you to explore what’s hiding beneath your anger. The freedom that comes with vulnerability is where your true power lies.

Anger is such a common emotional response, and is so prevalent in this hurried, frustrating World in which we live. I often tell my clients "anger is not a stand-alone emotion, but is rather a secondary response to a deeper underlying frustration, or perceived lack of control." Our job then, is to get to the underlying emotion that is driving the anger, and deal with that. Recognizing your unique anger triggers is certainly a very important part of this process.
