Anger is a normal feeling and a natural response to frustrating situations. However, the response that anger incites can sometimes be unhealthy. Anger management therapy can help you process and express anger in constructive ways. If anger and aggression have become regular parts of your life and have negatively affected you or others around you, anger management therapy can help you regain control.
What is Anger Management Therapy?
The goal of anger management therapy isn’t to stop angry feelings, but to cope with anger and express anger in constructive, not destructive, ways. A counselor specializing in anger management can help you develop techniques to control angry outbursts, remain calm, and resolve conflicts without violence or aggression.
How Can Anger Management Therapy Help?
There are many different ways anger is expressed and triggered. Together, you and your counselor will work together to find an anger management plan that best suits your personality, lifestyle, and the things that frequently trigger your anger.
Anger Management Therapy will teach you to:
- Control destructive behavior
- Utilize coping mechanisms
- Reduce the physical stress of anger
- Constructively resolve conflict
- Communicate more effectively
- Repair relationships damaged by anger
- Express anger in positive ways
I Need “Anger Management Classes.” Will This Count?
Anger management therapy is not always a choice you make yourself. Your workplace or a judge may have required you to take part in anger management classes as a result of problems at work, domestic disputes, or a crime. The licensed professionals at Michigan Counseling Centers can provide anger management therapy that fulfills your anger management requirements and gives you the tools to prevent destructive situations from occurring at work, at home, or in public.
Anger Management may be required or requested:
- By court order
- Through a plea bargain
- As a stipulation of continued employment
- Through a workplace harassment prevention program
- By a family court
- As a part of marriage counseling
- By family or friends
In cases of mandatory anger management classes, it’s easy to become frustrated or discouraged. However, even though anger management therapy was not your idea, this is an opportunity to live a happier, healthier, more productive life. Anger management techniques are designed to not only help those around you who are affected by your anger, but first and foremost to help you. You don’t have to live with the constant strain of anger, the deterioration of personal relationships, or the repercussions of angry episodes. Getting help is the first step towards a better life.
