Anger Management Q & A
What is Anger Management?
Anger management counseling is a type of counseling that is designed to help people better manage excessive anger. The counseling will help clients to learn more about how and why anger happens. During the course of counseling, people will learn how their excessive anger negatively impacts other people and will learn strategies and methods of managing it better.
How Can People Recognize Excessive Anger?
There are 3 different components to anger: Psychological (the emotional part of anger,) the physiological (the body's physical response to anger,) and the cognitive (the brain's thoughts when angry.) The body may show signs in all 3 areas during excessive anger, so it's important for people to recognize their warning signs. For example, many people have a physiological response, for example, a knotted-up stomach or accelerated breathing, when excessively angry. It can also be common to have extreme thoughts or emotions when experiencing excessive anger.
What Are the Effects of Excessive Anger?
Excessive anger can have a negative impact on every area of a person's life. It can damage the physical health, causing problems like high blood pressure and insomnia. It also causes issues for mental health, often leading to depression or other mental health issues. People who have excessive anger can damage their careers, their personal relationships, and every aspect of their lives if they don't get help. Anger management counseling can make a huge positive difference.
