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.

our approach to anger management not only includes treatment of symptoms but also focuses on assessing and exploring the cause and source of anger. The source reveals a number of things. For example, a person who shows anger may suffer from a psychiatric disorder which needs to be treated. Anger is sometimes just a symptom of an underlying untreated psychiatric disorder. Our anger management approach thus includes diagnosis, and individualized treatment plan.

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.

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 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 is a normal and natural feeling, but if your anger controls your life, causes harm to relationships, stands in the way of opportunities, or gets the better of you in any other way, steps need to be taken to manage your anger and find ways to express it in appropriate ways. Being able to identify situations, or thoughts that trigger your anger, as well as your physical responses, paves the way to discovery of how to calm yourself and take control. Anger management counseling can give you personalized, practical, one-on-one help with this.

Anger management has a become a big issue in our country and uncontrolled anger can lead to tragedy. Most angry people are stressed and in our high pressure stressful society there are many "triggers" . I use EMDR to treat the underlying anxiety and stress and use cognitive approaches to help relieve pressure before a person is out of control.

Learning to have better control of your anger, even if it is only internal, can improve the way in which you deal with situations and with people. It will certainly enable you to respond differently and more effectively. There are many techniques that I can offer and there are resources that are available, such as workbooks, CD's to help with most any kind of issues, and learning control techniques. Some skills are best learned in an office setting.

Children can say the darnedest things and sometimes parents aren't prepared for them. When possible, we can curb explosive anger through parent strategies alone. And at other times it takes a 2 pronged approach of both parent strategies and children learning skills. We offer both parent training and skill based learning to support appropriate expression of feelings and productive problem solving.

I help individuals learn to feel all of their feelings. This includes learning how to feel their anger and express it effectively and appropriately as opposed to ineffectively or destructively. Anger is a tricky emotion to understand because it has so much energy. The energy of anger has to be handled in strategic ways---which when done so can be a source of positive potential allowing the individual to address the issues that are causing them so much frustration.

Learning how to manage and reduce reactivity caused by anger is one of the most important and useful tools we can learn. I integrate mindfulness practice into my anger management therapy to assist clients to begin to interrupt the automatic reactions and explosions that get them into trouble. It is also very useful to explore what is under the anger, as anger is typically an automatic reaction that clouds over a mixture of many other powerful, yet hidden emotions (sadness, loss, grief, guilt, etc.).

Anger management is sought when someone cannot seem to control their anger and have outbursts and/or become abusive. Sometimes an employer insists that a worker get some help for their anger being displayed at the work place. However, most clients with anger issues are not mandated by the courts or their employer. The client is seeking help for a number of reasons that can have an origin with anger. For instance, here are many of the presenting issues that I have encountered: relationship difficulties, lack of motivation and direction, and depression. I help clients show how anger helps you to set boundaries and know when something is not fair. One can learn to express anger appropriately.

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.

In anger management counseling, we’d first discuss your goals, identify specific techniques and how apply them. I'm also interested in what’s going on in your life more generally and look into where the anger may have come from. I will be a source of support, accountability, a sounding board for which techniques you prefer and those that you don't, and a guide to help you to develop insights and skills.

Most people who have difficulty managing their anger have unintentionally allowed it to build up over years and years. If this pain is not alleviated, it builds and builds until it is expressed in a verbally or physically violent outburst. Just as a volcano fills with hot lava and erupts unexpectedly, a person's anger is released in a similar phenomenon. I can help you process these emotions and channel them in a more productive manner so that you can live a healthier, happier life. * Please note I do not provide court ordered anger management groups

Anger management counseling can help to identify stressors and learn the steps to stay calm in the face of anger. The goal is to handle tense situations in more constructive and positive ways by reducing the emotional and physical arousal that anger can cause. It will provide the tools to take back your life and resolve the triggers that result in unplanned anger reactions.

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?

Is your temper raging “out of control”? Do small things set you off? Do you react with sudden outbursts, flinging insults? Or, do you retreat in silent rage? Do you often feel your anger is justified, but upon reflection, regret your behavior? Or, do you find yourself locked in constant battle with people closest to you and those you love? Anger is a natural emotion, but unregulated anger can be destructive. It takes a toll on the individual and those around him or her, eroding self-esteem, wreaking havoc, and perpetuating feelings of disconnection, isolation and even loneliness. We can help you manage angry outbursts, understand your anger’s origins including unknown, underlying painful emotions, identify healthy coping strategies, channel your anger...(view profile to read more)
