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. CBT is incorpoated to teach the interaction between thoughts and behaviors. Goal is C helping the person to understand people do not want to live in fear of them but would rather live in peace with them. By having a disposition change people will be drawn to rather than run from or avoid them.

Anger erupts when we feel our needs and wants are not being respected. Many of us have developed ineffective ways to express our needs. My approach to anger management focuses on learning 1) to recognize our "hot" buttons, 2) so we can find ways to cool down temporarily, insuring that 3) no one comes to harm, leaving us the opportunity 4) to revisit the core issues with effective communication and negotiation skills.

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.
