It is healthy and normal to feel angry at times, but anger can be a very powerful emotion. If you have ever felt like you couldn’t stop brooding over something, even though part of you knew it was time to calm down and move on, you know firsthand that anger is sometimes hard to reel in.

What Is Anger Management?

Anger management is a necessary skill for all of us. Without the ability to respond appropriately to anger, we run the risk of damaging our relationships. Anger can even affect our physical health, since it is linked to conditions like hypertension and cardiovascular disease.

If you would like to understand where your anger comes from, what triggers your anger and how to handle difficult scenarios in a calm, constructive manner, anger management therapy is right for you. If you ever feel like you overreact in your anger, say things you don’t mean or do things you later regret, anger management is also for you.

What Happens During Anger Management Therapy?

Anger management therapy gives you an opportunity to release your feelings in a safe place, and to examine the sources of your anger. Anger management therapy emphasizes constructive guidelines that determine how an individual should respond in certain circumstances.

The goal of anger management is to create a state of self-awareness so that individuals recognize their anger and can take predetermined steps to minimize their heightened state of agitation. It also promotes healthy ways to express anger.

At Promises Behavioral Health, individuals can expect to learn how to apply strategies such as impulse control, focused breathing and meditation, among other techniques.

Who Can Benefit From Anger Management?

Anger management is most successful when an individual recognizes the need for the therapy and is committed to its success.

Sometimes anger can develop after certain events, such as:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Emotional trauma
  • Addiction recovery
