Anger is an important part of our lives. Unfortunately, most people are not shown how to manage anger. In fact, most people (including our media) encourage explosive anger. Anger can either be destructive or freeing. Our culture promotes explosive anger. It is often labeled as "my rights" or being "assertive". Reality T.V. is one of the greatest purveyers of this myth. Anger is often experienced as being able to be "controlled". That is just not true. It feels true because there isn't much talk about healthy ways of dialogue around why we are angry and choices that offer different outcomes. There are different outcomes. They are life giving and freeing.

Several large analyses of the published research suggest that overall, approximately 75% of people receiving anger management therapy improved as a result. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) helps to identify unhelpful or negative thought patterns and change inaccurate beliefs. Plan on examining the triggers that set you off and exploring how your experiences of anger are helpful or harmful, both in the short-term and in the long-
