Anger is a common, normal human emotion. So why does it seem to wreak havoc in our lives sometimes? The goal is not to eradicate anger from our range of emotions; rather, it is to learn healthier ways of expressing, feeling, and releasing anger when it rises up within us. Learning this particular bit of growth and strength alone can tremendously improve relationships in every sphere of our lives.

Anger is a secondary emotion and van stem from a wide range of things. The goal of anger management is to help the person identify the underlying source of the anger (the trigger) and the emotion attached to it. Upon finding the trigger we can trace it back to its origin. Communication skills training to learn how to effectively communicate thoughts, feelings, needs, desires and goals.

We invite clients to bring their anger to therapy, so that we can help them work on it. What we want the client to do is have a "catharsis of abreaction." Get that anger out, say what you wasn't able to say to that person in role play. Then the person will be able to come up with new and adequate solutions to what is underneath all the anger. Just talking about anger is not enough to deal with it. Anger is a strong, often pent up emotion where the person has an act hunger for it to be released. We never role train anyone to commit violence, but only to use a healthy release of the emotion of anger.
