Anger Management – Has anger been affecting your relationships at work or at home? Do you get angry easily; are you concerned about what that might lead to? Has an intense anger response already led to problems, perhaps resulting from involvement of law enforcement?
Effective Anger Management will help you learn to prevent anger from escalating and leading to negative consequences. The Anger Management program concepts and approach we use is proven effective (evidence-based), utilizes cognitive behavioral theory (CBT), includes educational components, and some role playing.
You will learn to identify your “hot buttons/triggers”, what might be underlying these triggers, detect cues of anger and how to improve your response to triggers and cues.
Learning to break down your reactions into types of responses/behaviors will assist you in creating a personal anger control plan, which will include tools that help you stay calm “in the moment” as well as techniques for preventative measures (aimed at eliminating or reducing your reaction to triggers) -- both of which can help prevent escalation of anger and associated negative consequences.
You will also learn how to use assertiveness, rather than aggression, and the benefits of, and how to use, a 5 step conflict resolution model.
The Anger Management program can be conducted in a group setting or in individual counseling sessions.
