Think before you speak

In the heat of the moment, it’s easy to say something you’ll might later regret. Take a moment, a breath, or a walk to collect your thoughts before saying anything. One of the best tactics is to take a pause before reacting. Also allow those involved in the situation to do the same. This will assist in helping all parties avoid lashing out.

Once you’re calm, express your concerns

When you find that your heart has stopped racing and you can now think clearer, express your frustration in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others. You also don’t want to come off as controlling during your interaction. Criticizing or placing blame might only increase tension. Instead, use “I” statements to describe the problem. Be respectful and specific.

Problem Solve for Effective Solutions

Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Did your spouse leave dishes in the sink again? Discuss a chore solution that might be more beneficial. Your best friend is repeatedly late to meet you? Mention how it makes you feel and express that want for understanding. Also, understand that some things are truly out of your control. Try to be realistic about what you can and cannot change and remind yourself that anger won’t fix anything and might only make it worse.

Don’t hold a grudge

Forgiveness is a powerful tool. If you allow anger to crowd positive feelings, you might find yourself spiraling down a vortex your own bitterness or sense of injustice. Forgiving someone who angered you might help you both learn from the situation and strengthen your relationship. Holding a grudge will only increase negative feeling for yourself and can cause unintentional continued conflict.

Is Anger Management Treatment Effective

Is Anger Management Treatment Effective?

Anger management is effective if a person is willing to change and make efforts when receiving help. Anger management is for those whose anger gets out of control and destructive to themselves or to others. Getting help and managing anger can greatly impact an individual’s overall quality of life.

Anger management helps reduce an individual’s negative feelings and outbursts towards certain triggers, such as a specific person, event, memory or personal setback. In anger management the therapist or psychologist will need to find out what triggers an individual’s anger, and then develop strategies to keep those triggers from becoming harmful. Different therapeutic strategies in anger management include:  relaxation, cognitive restructuring, problem solving, better communication, using humor and changing the environment (APA, 2016).

In each of the strategies the goal is to teach an individual how to respond and avoid angry triggers in a controlled way. It usually takes an individual 10 weeks to three months to learn these strategies (Castella, 2013). A person must be aware of their anger and use these strategies when they feel their anger emerging. Also thinking before acting out can save a person from many regrets. This is why planning and rehearsing for events that trigger anger are so important.

Anger is associated with serious harm. In the worst case scenario, homicides may result (Fives, Kong & Fuller, 2011). If an individual’s life is falling apart because of anger, they need to get help to avoid hurting themselves or others around them. The individual dealing with anger issues must realize their faults and overcome them in a controlled, meaningful manner. Learning from past experiences can help the individual handle a situation differently the next time it occurs.

If you are interested in receiving in person or electronic therapeutic services for anger management, we can help. We also provide four-hour and eight-hour anger management courses that meet the requirements for Level 1 and Level 2 Anger Management respectively.

Anger Management Techniques That Work:

  1. Count your anger off. Depending on the level of anger will determine how high you will need to count. As a general rule, count to 20 and focus on the consequences of getting angry. If you are still fuming, continue to count. Do not make a decision to act until you are calm.
  2. Take a walk. Exercise works great to lessen anger by expending tension and energy. It is not a good idea to hit or kick an object because you could injure yourself and when we act with aggression it leads to increased aggression.
  3. Engage in deep breathing exercises. I prefer the use of diaphragmatic breathing which causes the relaxation response. It is important to inhale through your nose for three to four seconds, pause for three to four seconds, exhale through your mouth for three to four seconds, and then pause again for three to four seconds and repeat the entire process. While you breathe, attempt to isolate how you breath to using your diaphragm rather than filling your chest. Instead, your stomach should feel as if it is filling with air and then emptying the air. While you are breathing, focus on keeping the other parts of the body still while relaxing. Once you feel your heart rate decrease, you are free to move.
  4. Call a friend or family member. Seeking support from a trusted individual is a fantastic way to calm yourself. Not only can they be supportive, but they can remind you about the potential consequences of your behavior.
  5. Seek the help of a psychologist, therapist, or counselor, or consider taking an online class. All are effective methods in addressing your anger problem. Ensure that the professional whom you choose, utilizes cognitive behavioral strategies as these techniques have been shown to be the most effective in helping people control anger.
