Quite often anger is a result of not being in control, misunderstood, not being heard. The result is an outburst of anger in which one may lose control, say things they don’t mean, take actions they don’t wish to take ( such as throwing things, hitting, short tempter, road rage, domestic violence, for teens and children, temper tantrums etc.,), the angry person is aggressive, and perhaps abusive. There is often a physiological reaction to this for the one who is experiencing anger such as increased blood pressure, and increased adrenaline (this is why a person who is enraged becomes stronger) some develop such high levels of adrenaline that they may lose complete awareness of their reaction, hence the term, ‘blind with rage’. This is a description of unproductive anger.
Do you know what makes you angry?
You will learn the difference between unproductive and productive expressions of your feelings, the difference between being aggressive and being assertive. In this process you will learn a great deal about yourselves, your feelings, and thought process, allowing you to see other possible interpretations of various situations. Practical and real situations are practiced, helping you work through your own circumstances and issues.
Anger Management provides you with practical knowledge, and the experience of how to express many different feelings, in addition to anger in a productive and effective manner.
