Anger is a secondary emotion meaning arising when people experience an escalating series of intensifying emotions and with that intensification, feel out of control. To feel back in control, they "act out" by (in no particular order) shout, yell, swear, verbally abuse, break things, drive recklessly, threaten others, and generally drive everyone away from them over time. I teach people to honor their emotions and learn to catch the first inklings of impatience, frustrations, or whatever emotion becomes so uncomfortable for them that they flair. A desire to rid themselves of this potentially sociopathic behavior plus a curiosity to proactively observe themselves is necessary for progress.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of anger management in a very humane yet fresh perspective. You see, anger is a normal emotion but it is the valence (intensity) as well as the coupling choice of what one does with this that is the problem. Telling someone to "not" do it or modifying behavior with a trite psychological plan that only breeds a compliant response is not the way to change anger. Brainwave optimization is a new cutting edge technology that allows one to rewire circuitry responsible for reactivity driving the anger.

Anger can cause job loss, loss of friends, and loss of family. An angry individual may nag, bicker, fume, rant, fight, or just bang objects about. You feel angry in response to being hurt or threatened in some way. A boundary that you put in place is perceived as being crossed. How you act upon that anger or express that felt anger is where problems may appear. It is time to seek help when you feel you are out of control or others are asking you to change how you respond. Anger can be managed along with that internal agitation being lessened through learning relaxation skills, discovering the source of the anger, and working on more effective means to deal with those feelings.

Anger is one of the most destructive emotions we experience. Not only can it put people we love in jeopardy, but it puts your own health at serious risk. An important parts controlling your anger is recognizing the physical changes in your body before you act out. For example, Is your heart racing? Do you feel a rush of warmth to your head? Also, when you can identify the triggers (the tone of voice, the subject matter, the environment, etc.) you can learn better impulse control. We will practice mindfulness techniques in session to raise your awareness of your mind, body, and spirit when you are feeling anger, and help you practice more effective, safe ways of reacting to these triggers.

I have had a great deal of experience working with children and adolescents who have difficulty managing their anger. We look at patterns of behavior. We explore what happened before they felt angry, their triggers. Then together we create a list of coping skills that they can use in place of the inappropriate behaviors they they were using. Since they helped me generate the list, they are invested in these coping skills. I find that many of my clients need a physical outlet for their anger.

I provide individual psychotherapy for anger management. Anger is normal emotion that everyone experiences. It becomes a problem when one expresses anger inappropriately or one lacks the proficiency to express any emotions but anger. I use Humanistic and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) to help my clients understand their anger, improve their emotional experience, and express their emotions in healthy ways. A healthy emotional life is the cornerstone of living a full and successful life.

We all have emotions, and we all get angry. It's not a bad thing to get angry, however, it's how we manage and regulate these emotions in our day to day life that is really important. My work in anger management is helping the person identify triggers to be able to safely regulate emotions in the community. I'd love to speak with you more about how Austin Trauma Therapy Center can help you.

Although I do not offer official classes for anger management, I do address anger as a block and/or limitation to optimal mental health. I approach anger as a source of pain that is trapped in the body. I approach anger as an emotion that must be released. During the release, techniques for managing that anger are required.

Some of the latest studies suggest that the root issue for those experiencing anger issues stem from a sense of self shame. I received training as an Anger Management Specialist I and am trained to work with individuals either through a 12 session course or a combination of coursework and individual therapy. I've found the latter to be very effective in helping people understand their anger response and develop other resources and outlets to manage that powerful emotion

Ever wonder why you can't get control of you anger? Maybe you've tried lots of different techniques or read a number of books and nothing seems to work for you. Too many of us with anger problems are too focused on the anger, to the exclusion of some of the emotions that trigger that anger. I work with clients to understand the full spectrum of their emotions and how anger is a part of that spectrum.

Anger can be terrifying for everyone. Often we have not learned skills on how to handle anger appropriately and in a healthy manner. Anger itself is not a bad emotion, it is how we choose to use it that can cause problems. Sometimes when we react by yelling or shouting we may be perceiving a threat that is not there. When working with clients I help find out the triggers and emotions that bring out the anger and find better ways to express the anger. These skills can help everyone!

As a culture, we do not do well with healthy expressions of anger. Often we are raised to suppress it and then we have limited practice at dealing with big emotion. There is a spectrum of healthy aggression- to keep us safe and to maintain boundaries- and rage- our body's strategy for safety. Anger management is about applying the right "dosing" to maintain boundaries yet not fracture relationships or suffer other losses. I am able to help you learn to regulate your body to be able to apply the appropriate "dose" to be effective and not destructive.
