Anger Management Can Help You Regain Control of Your Emotions and Improve Your Reaction!
Anger is a normal and healthy response to what you perceive as a threat. It can be used for a constructive purpose. However, if you take anger to the extreme you may need the tools that will help you slow your reaction so you can take the time to think about the situation at hand. Anger management can help you decrease the heightened physiological and emotional arousal that you experience when feeling irritated, frustrated, mad, or annoyed.
When you go to therapy for anger management, you will learn how to properly identify your stressors and take the appropriate steps to stay calm. By doing this, one can handle even very tense situations with a positive, constructive approach. While you cannot avoid all things, people, or settings that can make you angry, you can learn how to control your reactions so you can respond in a socially appropriate manner.
What Causes Anger?
Anger can result from many different events. You can become angry from internal events, which can be viewed as failures, frustrations, or injustices. People can become angry due to external events, which could include humiliations, loss of privileges or property, or teasing. Anger can also lead to externalizing behaviors such as tantrums, fights, or verbal arguments or internalizing behaviors such as depression, sulking, or refusing to speak.
There are many instances in which people respond to anger with aggression. Aggression, a biological function of anger, helps prepare individuals to fight off threats. If angry impulses sometimes take over, these inappropriate displays of anger could be the indicator of a more serious emotional or mental health issue. These reactions and impulses can be managed with treatment.
When you come to Rocky Mountain Counseling Coaching Consulting, your therapist will help to guide you in slowing your response to anger so you can take the time to identify the reason for your feelings. Anger’s roots could be buried in grief, trauma, or addiction, so you could be naturally inclined to get temporary relief by lashing out at others rather than looking at the actual reason for the anger. With the help of a therapist, you can overcome these problems and respond to anger much more appropriately.

Is Anger Management Effective?
Yes, research has shown that anger management is very effective. It is an approach that provides a distinct, clear, set of guidelines designed to help you reach recovery. You will be given a controlled platform so you can release your emotions while working toward achieving positive and constructive responsive instead of destructive or negative responses. You will be encouraged to examine the circumstances that set off your anger so you can become more aware of your varying states of emotion at each level of arousal. You are then taught how using those physiological signs as a map to gain control of your anger. Your therapist will work with you to determine if your anger responses are defense mechanisms resulting from other concerns, such as anxiety or depression.
