Anger Management Therapy

Anger Management Therapy

Anger management therapy empowers individuals to take control of excessive rage and frustration. Uncontrolled anger can take control of a person’s life, destroying relationships with friends, family, coworkers and loved ones. This sort of anger is not only harmful relationally, but can cause thoughts of physically harming oneself and others. Anger may be accompanied by depression, violence, and suicidal thoughts. At Freeman Recovery Center, we use anger management treatment to help individuals and families communicate in healthy, constructive ways.

While anger is a natural emotion which can be both appropriate and healthy in certain situations, when rage is a constant struggle it can lead to abuse, inappropriate behavior, addictions, physical or emotional harm to oneself and others, and more. Anger management therapy teaches individuals to control and minimize such rage. Our caring team looks at all aspects involved in uncontrolled rage including the physical, emotional, mental and behavioral causes and effects. Through therapy, individuals learn:

  • Improved communication skills
  • Problem-solving skills
  • Management of triggers
  • Healthy modes of emotional release

Problem-solving therapies and cognitive behavioral therapies (CBT) are often effective tools in taking control of misplaced or excessive frustration. CBT allows an individual to recognize the negative thoughts which fuel uncontrolled rage. Once those thoughts are seen for what they are, the individual can effectively resolve the issue. CBT encourages:

  • Positive conflict resolution
  • Coping with stress due to illness, trauma, or abuse
  • Healthy navigation of difficult situations
  • Recognition and management of personal triggers

The exact source of a person’s uncontrolled anger depends on the individual’s unique history and circumstances. At Freeman Recovery Center, we develop treatment plans which account for the independent and individualistic care effective anger therapy requires. We work with individuals to understand and manage anger at its source.
