IPG offers a powerful weekly Anger Management group. The goal is to become more aware of the triggers of anger, the effects of aggression and the underlying emotional wounds. Each week members keep a log of situations that trigger them and work through a chapter in our Anger Management workbook. In group, members are invited share insights from their log. Other members respond with their immediate thoughts, feelings and reactions. As we explore the dynamics that unfold in the group, members gain real-time feedback of what activates them and alternative possibilities to their usual reactions. $65/week. Clients must attend all sessions (12) to receive a certificate of completion.

Anger is an emotion that often viewed as an emotion to avoid or suppress. In my view, however, anger -- just like other emotion -- serves as an indicator as to how we really feel about a person or situation. In working with clients on anger-issues I encourage -- not the suppression of anger -- but rather the appropriate expression of it. The goal is to help clients own and feel their own anger and to use it in ways that helps advance their understanding of themselves and those who mean the most to them.

Being angry and losing control of ones behavior is mostly a learned habit. Anything learned can be unlearned. I will work with you in a cognitive and behavioral way to break and change this habit to a more functional and acceptable way to express yourself. We will also look at where and how you learned this behavior how you decided to give yourself permission to behave in this manner.

Anger management is a growing problem in our culture. I utilize both individual and group therapy to help people learn to deal with their own anger and the anger of others. People are often convinced their anger is a good thing, until they lose important relationships or get fired from jobs. The first thing I do is show them the many ways their anger is harming them and others. I use many techniques to do this, including analysis, confrontation, video, role play and practice with constructive communication. In time they learn to express themselves in ways that resolve rather than inflame situations.

People often come into my office and say that they have no control over their anger, that they just "lost it." I work with my clients to help them understand that they do have control over their anger. I teach them anger management strategies to increase awareness of their feeling states on a regular basis so that they can recognize and address the warning signs before letting the anger build. There are several techniques that clients can use when they recognize the warning signs. My clients and I fill their "toolbox" with as many strategies as possible to calm themselves down and think rationally.

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.

Anger is an important emotion that serves a necessary function. Some people, however, have difficulty controlling their anger and end up regretting their actions later on. At the Lukin Center, we work with clients to help them identify when they become angry and the stages of anger they pass through before they lose control in order to be able to prevent the anger from building to such a destructive fever pitch. Our therapists work with each individual to provide techniques and tools for maintaining control that work for them.

We feel anger because we feel that something is not fair, something is not working out the way we thought it should, our boundaries have been crossed, or we feel we have been treated badly, or missed out. Anger can be frustrating if you don't know how to address the underlying issue. I specialize in helping those whose anger is related to social anxiety, isolation, bullying, harassment or lack of important social skills.

Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems at work, in relationships and in the overall quality of your life. But you don’t have to feel helpless in the face of an unpredictable and destructive force in your life. I work to help you heal the root cause of your anger. You’ll find understanding and compassion for the pain in yourself and your healing can begin. With healing comes understanding and compassion for others, and the return of the sense of control and calm in your life.

In psychotherapy patients can benefit from anger management counseling by learning to better manage powerful emotions such as anger and rage. Patients can also learn to manage strong impulses and modify their behavior. Another focus of anger management may be improving one's communication skills to reduce the drive toward "acting-out." Improvements in these various areas can have positive and long lasting effects on interpersonal relationships.
