  • Anger Management

  • Anger is an extreme emotion or violent feeling.  Anger also has a physical component as well. Both heart rate and blood pressure increase, as anger increases.  It can be observed in verbal arguments, or this may escalate to a physical confrontation. All programs of anger management  have as an outcome goal or goal the reduction of these intense feelings. It is necessary to reduce both the emotional feelings and the physiological condition that extreme anger causes. Often it is not possible to avoid the things or the people/situations that stimulate these emotional reactions.  If it is not possible to change these, then it is necessary to develop skills to control verbal and/or violent reactions.

    Are You Too Angry?

    Several psychological tests have been developed to measure the extent and intensity of angry feelings. The outcome of the test will indicate how inclined to anger the person may be, and how well these situations are handled. By late teen years and early adulthood, the individual may sense that their responses to anger are of concern or they may have been told they have issues with anger control. When the person senses that they have lost control of their emotions and this becomes frightening, this individual needs assistance with controlling behavioral responses to anger.
