Anger Management Class Anger is a natural emotion that everyone experiences at one time or another, with different levels of frequency and intensity. From a biological perspective, anger is a necessary instinctive, physiological and psychological response to a perceived threat. Anger can become problematic when the situation that elicits it is unwarranted or when the anger experienced is out of proportion to the associated context. Anger can also become distressing and maladaptive when it leads to destructive behaviors, interpersonal conflicts, occupational difficulties, or legal complications. In light of the potentially devastating effects of unhealthy anger responses, anger management.

Anger Management is about understanding how to manage the triggers and stressors that are uniquely the clients. Learning mindfulness techniques and self-reflection approaches are some of the strategies. Anger can also be the byproduct of an imbalance biochemistry. In therapy we explore the episodes and work with both the short term and long term issues. I work with adolescents/teens who have anger issues including impulse disorders.

Anger, along with guilt, feelings of inadequacy, sexuality, and anxiety, is one of the major issues I work with in individual psychotherapy and marital counseling. My treatment of preference for anger management is primarily psychodynamic; this is because it enables both the patient and myself to identify the underlying issues and what triggers them. Once we have established what the triggers are, we can begin to explore what the underlying psychodynamics are entering new territory where most of the psychotherapy happens.

Anger is often a cover for fear or sadness. Underlying most anger is a deeper emotion, one that feels paralyzing or helpless. Since sadness and fear feel weak, but anger feels strong and powerful, many people use anger to deal with depression or anxiety. My approach to anger is twofold: 1), to help you learn techniques on how to manage your anger and deal with people and situations that trigger your anger, and 2) to understand the feelings underlying anger and how to overcome those in order to reduce the amount of anger in the first place. Deciding to get help for your anger is a courageous first step toward improving your quality of life and your relationships.

Anger is a secondary emotion, it never exists in a vacuum. This means that all anger has its source, whether it be unmet needs, frustration, guilt, shame etc. A large part of anger management counseling is uncovering the primary emotion, revealing the source and understanding where the anger is coming from. Often, this knowledge alone is more than half the battle. There are other techniques as well that can help you overcome your anger when you feel like you're going to "flip your lid."

Anger can get triggered in situations where you feel disrespected, shamed, rejected, powerless, not heard, not valued, or not safe. My approach for helping clients reduce their anger is to identify past experiences that elicit anger, frustration, fear, shame or other upsetting emotions and negative thoughts now, and then to reprocess those memories with EMDR therapy. I have also helped clients understand why they feel they need to hold on to their anger and then work through the blocks to letting the anger go while still helping them find other ways to feel in control, heard, respected or safe. Note: I do not offer Anger Management classes to meet work or court ordered requirements.

A psychoanalytic approach to anger moves beyond cognitive and behavioral approaches and allows the client to speak to and work through the complex issues underlying anger specific to each individual. The intention is to effect change at a more lasting level than more generalized treatment allows. Within the psychoanalytic framework, we can also explore the application of mindfulness techniques such as breath work and mindful movement.
