Anger Management Therapy

Anger is a normal, human reaction to stressful and upsetting events. Everyone has experienced anger in their lives; however, when it becomes hard to manage in situations and starts to affect one’s quality of life and relationships, it may be beneficial for an individual to seek therapy for anger management. Although attempting to control such an innate emotion may seem difficult, there are ways clinicians can help clients manage this strong emotion. 

According to VeryWellMind, one common technique for managing anger is applying the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, in which triggering thought patterns can be identified and restructured in one’s mind; this can allow someone to feel calmer in stressful situations and approach scenarios in a more logical, practical way. 

Additionally, some common practices involved in this type of therapy include identifying triggers for one’s anger and how one typically responds to it and learning anger-diffusion strategies. This can allow individuals to channel any strong emotions they may be feeling into healthier and safer outlets.
