Anger provides information about what we think/feel is being threatened, and it provides the energy to act on that information. Since we are wired to become angry WHEN appropriate, only the misuse of anger is a problem. However, anger often hijacks our thinking which then compounds the original problem. When helping clients develop improved anger management skills, I help them understand the elements of our emotional-physical anger response and learn to diffuse them and effectively use the information and energy that anger provides.

Anger management requires a calm and respectful relationship that I build with the client. Often the client is overwhelmed and fearful, hiding behind a boisterous, heated anger. Given an ongoing opportunity to express one's situation and to be heard with genuine concern is a necessary step in the healing process for those who suffer with anger issues. Of course, we also discuss boundaries and stopping measures to manage impulse control.

Occasional anger is a normal part of life. When expressed appropriately anger can be both therapeutic and helpful. However, when anger is expressed inappropriately or with great intensity it can become very destructive to one's relationships or one's self. When this happens it may be very helpful to consult a therapist with skill in dealing with anger management problems. At Portrait Health Centers, therapy can greatly benefit the person seeking treatment for anger management.

Anger is so much more than just anger. Under Anger there are a lot of deeper feelings that have usually gone repressed or unvalidated. The first step in working with anger is addressing those underlying thoughts and feelings to get to the root of the anger. We'll find new ways to cope with life's stressors and incorporate new ways of interacting with others.

In dealing with anger management, I do not simply try to focus on counting to 10 and other superficial control mechanisms. Instead, I try to help the individual to learn to deal more effectively with the underlying causes of the anger. Anger is a defensive response to perceived threat. Thus, I help the individual to uncover, recognize and deal more effectively with the perceived threat - perceived loss of love and respect from a loved one is the most common threat. We all feel hurt when we perceive that our loved one feels or thinks less of us.

Is anger getting in the way of getting what you want out of life? Anger can be difficult to control in the moment, which is why prevention is my main treatment focus. Often anger is secondary to other emotions, such as feeling threatened, disrespected, or unheard. Improving communication skills is an important part of treatment, as is understanding the root causes of anger and being able to identify feelings of tension and frustration as they begin to build. How would your life change if you learned healthier ways to express yourself and have your needs met?

I use a pyscho educational approach with working with anger management. In that I teach about anger being a secondary emotion that often protects hurt and fear. We go through the anger cycle and ways to change that cycle. The goal is help clients move from destructive behaviors to constructive communication and behaviors. A typical anger management process takes four to six sessions.
