Approximately 25% of my clients are being treated for Anger management. My strategy is to help my clients identify the "inflammatory thoughts" that drive their anger, the "buttons" that they seem sensitive to, things like disrespect or being controlled. I also help them to develop scripts for things that bother them and help them to talk about those issues in a way that is productive.

I think of anger as a messenger, not a vehicle. In other words, it is important to pay attention to what anger is telling us, and to make a choice about how to handle that interpersonally. Anger is a highly important emotion; it is self organizing, and self protecting. Yet ,our brains evolved to deal with highly aroused feelings like anger by fighting, fleeing, or shutting down. I help clients learn how to work with anger at it's first glimmer in order to take assertive action. This could be action to set boundaries or to communicate concerns. The list goes on, though!

There is so much to say about anger and its role in our lives. First, we need anger to assist us in knowing when to set limits and establishing safe ground rules with others. Anger lets us know when something is not quite right about a situation or an encounter. But anger can get us into trouble. The destructive elements of anger can cause us to lose jobs, people, and can even make us sick. I and other clinicians in my office work with clients to learn how to identify the elements of their anger and what lies beneath it. We work collaboratively with clients on ways to appropriately express anger, confront effectively, and manage conflict in a healthy and respectful manner.

Anger is often a misunderstood emotion. It can lead to destructive behaviors but it can also be a doorway into constructive movement in one's life if there is a clear understanding of what is "underneath" the anger. That's what I can help you with...uncovering the real reason(s) for the intense or explosive reactions and finding your way to real peace of mind.
