Anger is often misunderstood, as it has many levels of intensity. The term “anger management” is also misleading to many clients, where they may come into counseling with the hope of eliminating all their anger. Unfortunately, this is impossible since we are genetically programmed to feel some form of anger at certain times. Anger management should be focused on controlling this spectrum of emotion before an individual acts out negatively. Most of the time, if an individual can learn to notice and intervene at the first signs of frustration, the chance of acting out in anger or rage will be greatly reduced. This can be accomplished through a combination of psychoeducation, reducing “baseline anger,” and specific strategies to deal with frustration.
Program Objectives - Participants Will Be Able to:
1. Understand certain facts about the brain, as it relates to anger, that can be passed on to clients; thereby giving them a more logical explanation of why these strategies work.
2. Recognize the importance of intervening at the point of frustration, before it turns to anger or rage.
3. Comprehend the concept of “baseline anger” and how this can be reduced by utilizing daily anger management activities
