I'We all get angry at times. Anger can be a helpful thing. It can help us do what needs to be done, no matter the consequences. But anger can be a problem for many in our society. From road rage to domestic violence to angry self-harm, anger can cause problems at home, at work, and throughout one's life. Three things have been found to be helpful in reducing frequent or chronic anger to a manageable level:
Relaxation - specifically targeted t you individual anger triggers.
Cognitive Therapy - to determine what is behind the triggers and to regain control of one's thoughts.
Skill development - determining what works for you in the real world to keep anger from causing you problems and hurting or frightening others.
We work respectfully with individuals, court ordered or not, to understand their specific anger and how it affects their life. How can you tell if your anger is justified, or not, in the moment? What do you do with unhelpful anger? How can you tell how your anger is affecting those around you? How can you set boundaries for your behavior when your're angry? How can you learn to be in control of your anger rather than your anger controlling you?
If you, a loved one, your boss, or the courts think you need some help managing your anger, give us a call, or send us an email with your contact information, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
