Anger Management Program

Anger is a common human response experienced by persons of all ages, backgrounds, and education. For some people anger is a serious problem. Anger is often viewed as an immature or uncivilized response to frustration, threat, violation, or loss. Conversely, keeping calm, coolheaded, or turning the other cheek is considered more socially acceptable. This can result in inappropriate expressions of anger such as uncontrolled violent outbursts, misdirected anger or repressing all feelings of anger when it would be an appropriate response to the situation. Anger that is constantly “bottled up” can lead to persistent violent thoughts or actions, nightmares and even physical symptoms. Our goal is to help individuals learn emotional control skills for living happier, more peaceful and successful lives. Anger management is a process of learning to recognize signs that you're becoming angry, and taking action to calm down and deal with the situation in a positive way. Anger management doesn't try to keep you from feeling anger or holding it in. Anger is a healthy, normal emotion when you know how to express it appropriately.
