Anger is a completely normal human emotion that turns destructive when it gets out of control. Anger is an emotional state that varies from mild irritation to intense fury and rage. It can be caused by both external and internal events. When anger gets out of control it causes problems in your personal relationships, the workplace, and in the quality of your life. Some people get angry more easily and more intensely than others. These people can express their anger in loud ways or express it by being chronically irritable, grumpy, socially withdrawn, or getting physically ill. Expressing your anger in an assertive manner is healthy. If anger is not allowed an outward expression it can turn inward on you causing hypertension, high blood pressure,...(view profile to read more)

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 an emotion that can be very hard to manage and respond to effectively because most people often have a very automatic and impulsive response when they experience anger. Through dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) we can begin to identify emotions and begin to slow down in order to recognize ways to respond to emotions rather than react to them. This will help you feel more in control of your emotions as well as improve your relationships with others because of your ability to manage and respond to anger effectively.

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)

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.

I have assisted both individuals and couples with anger management issues.

Anger typically mask other feelings and needs. Often a person's way of expressing anger directly relates to how anger was managed by one's caretakers in childhood. While it can be difficult to sort it all out, self-awareness is key to managing feelings of anger. My approach to developing anger management skills in psychotherapy is first to identify patterns of behavior around anger and probable triggers to explosive episodes. Secondly, with this information, specific behavioral strategies can be developed to minimize risks associated with unregulated anger. And finally, with this greater stability, deeper self-exploration can be pursued that will lead to improved anger management.

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.

In the treatment of anger management, you will learn that the emotion of anger is not the problem. Instead, it's how we respond to anger that causes us problems. Anger management therapy therefore focuses on how you can experience and communicate anger in a way that strengthens your relationships. Additionally, you will learn to identify the triggers to your anger, which will likely decrease the amount of anger you experience.

Annoyed, aggravated, irritated, frustrated, hostile, infuriated, and full of rage. What do all these words have in common? These words all fall on the emotional spectrum of anger. Anger is not an unhealthy emotion, but sometimes people express their anger in an unhealthy manner. There are alternative healthy ways of expressing and managing one's anger. Karen partners with her clients to explore the reasons for their anger, and then teaches the clients how to manage or release anger in healthy ways.

I've seen many clients over the years with anger management issues. Men require a therapist's sensitivity to the issues they use anger to deal with. Learning the practical skills to deal with anger and understanding the issues of entitlement, humiliation, control, and fear that often provoke rage or it's opposite, suppressing, internalizing it, is my goal in working with clients through individual and couple's counseling. I see many couples where their anger with each other contaminates possibilities of working on common issues so I work with couples to disentangle their disruptive, sometimes abusive communications through a combination of individual and couple's counseling.
