Anger Management

Anger management is the process of learning to recognize the signs that you are becoming angry and to take positive actions to deal with the emotions brought on by a situation. Anger management therapy and anger management groups focus on providing methods and tools for managing anger and expressing it in an effective and healthy way.

Anger is a natural part of life and a very important and healthy emotion when expressed appropriately. Anger is not only an emotion, but also a physical reaction: our blood pressure and heart rate rise along with the level of adrenaline in our body. Unfortunately, when expressed inappropriately, anger can impair our judgment and thinking, causing us to act irrationally or violently towards others.
