ANGER ON MY MIND

Advance and proven anger management advice

Posted on: November 14, 2007

If you, your co-workers, family members or friends think that your anger is a problem, take it serious and get the professional help you need. Anger is a normal human emotion. However, it is a problem when angry behavior impacts interpersonal relationships. Here are some clues to help you determine if your anger is in the normal, acceptable range or if your anger is affecting your relationships or health:

-Your anger is too frequent.
-Your anger is too intense.
-Your anger lasts too long.
-Your anger is causing health problems.
-Your anger is affecting your relationships.

-Your anger is leading to conflicts with others.

-Your anger is resulting in person or property directed aggression.

If any three of the above conditions are true in your situation, you need to seek an assessment from a Certified Anger Management Provider.

Since anger is not a mental or nervous disorder, it is not responsive to counseling, psychotherapy or medication. Intervention for anger is not covered by health insurance.

Certified Anger Management Facilitators routinely provide participants with an assessment at intake. This assessment is a MAP, which is designed to identify the sources of strength or deficits in the following areas: anger management, stress management, assertive communication and emotional intelligence.

Following the assessment, each client is given feedback in writing and verbally detailing the results of the assessment and the goals and length of time needed to accomplish those goals. Each client is given a workbook, which contains anger logs, stress logs, exercises, quizzes and information on anger, stress, communication and emotional intelligence. In addition, posters, videos, role-play and mini lecturers are provided during the anger management classes to teach skill enhancement in these areas.

After the completion of the class or individual coaching, a Post Test is given to determine the level of change in the areas in which deficits were noted in the initial assessment. Follow-up contacts are generally arranged to occur on a quarterly basis for at least six months.
