Anger Management Q & A

What is anger management?

Anger is a normal emotion, and it’s healthy to express feelings of anger in certain situations. Sometimes, however, a person has difficulty letting go of angry feelings or can’t control when or how they express their anger.

If anger is interfering with your relationships or job or is generally preventing you from feeling happiness, you may need to learn how to consciously manage your angry emotions. 

Anger management therapy is one way you can develop strategies to control your anger, so it won’t have negative consequences on your personal and professional life.

Who can benefit from anger management training?

Anger management training helps people who are experiencing anger that causes negative consequences in their life. Sometimes the courts order mandatory anger management treatment in response to an anger-driven legal incident. 

However, anyone can choose to enter anger management therapy to learn how to manage their response to situations that trigger unhealthy anger.

What is anger management therapy?

Anger management therapy is a type of training that combines education and counseling techniques. Anger management training helps you identify triggers, recognize the emotions that precipitate anger, and develop tools to help you remain calm in difficult situations. 

Counseling allows you to explore the reasons for your anger and address any underlying mental health conditions that contribute to your unhealthy anger response.
