Everyone has instances of intense anger and frustration. How that impacts them and others around them differs. Anger management aims to help a person reduce their emotional feelings and the underlying cause of that intense anger. There’s no way to avoid anger, but there are better ways to manage it. If you are feeling anger constantly, it’s possible to understand why it’s happening and work to improve it.
At Symetria Recovery, we offer a comprehensive anger management program that includes individual therapy designed to help you create a better outcome with improved coping skills.
Could an Anger Management Program Help You?
The goal of an anger management program is to recognize the signs that you’re becoming angry. This then alerts you to the need to calm down and deal with what’s occurring and causing these feelings in a productive way. This type of program does not aim to keep you from feeling anger or hold it in. Rather, it creates opportunities for you to express it appropriately and effectively. But, how do you know if you may need an anger management program?
A few indications that an anger management program may be right for you include:
- You feel angry often and typically hold it in until you can’t any longer.
- Physical violence occurs when you get angry, such as to other people or property.
- Engaging in frequent arguments with others is common, and it often escalates rather than alleviates the problem.
- You engage in constant negative thinking. Much of your focus is on negative experiences.
- You feel irritation, hostility, and impatience constantly.
- Sometimes your anger includes out-of-control behavior, including breaking things.
In these situations, the underlying cause of your anger isn’t always wrong. However, your expression of it may be putting you at risk rather than supporting your feelings. That’s why it is crucial to recognize the need for change.
Anger Management Techniques Can Create a Better Future
During therapy, it’s always important to work to understand the underlying cause of these intense emotions. For some people, there is a presence of long-lasting trauma and pain that creates the underlying concern. For others, it is due to the use of alcohol or untreated mental health disorders. Once this is understood, various anger management techniques are used to help create a better future.
To achieve this goal in therapy sessions at Symetria Recovery, we work with you through a range of therapy types. Each type of therapy aims to provide a different level of support for you.
Some examples of therapies we offer that may be valuable in anger management include:
- Dialectical behavior therapy
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Family counseling and support groups
- Group therapy program
In these sessions, a person learns much more about themselves and why they feel and act the way they do. For example, you may need help with improving stress management. Sometimes, people need to work on strategies to alleviate past trauma and pain impacting their lives today. Improving communication, developing better stress management tools, and working to build confidence are all steps that can happen during therapy.
At Symetria Recovery, we create an individualized treatment plan to address your specific needs. You will not find judgment here. Rather, you’ll find people who want to help you live the life you want and deserve without intense anger limiting you.
