What is anger management? Are anger management classes right for me?
Per the American Psychological Association, Anger is completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life. And it can make you feel as though you’re at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion.
Sometimes, our anger, rage, frustration, violence are caused by serious and challenging issues in our lives. It is expected to demonstrate a certain degree of anger or disappointment. Sometimes, it’s a healthy, natural response to life’s difficulties. We are raised to believe we must solve all problems. This can cause our anger to get out of control. Focusing on the present and working towards acknowledging the problem is the first step towards anger management.
Anger management classes focus on new behavior strategies. The new goal is to start identifying and managing anger, stress, rage, violence and conflict while improving emotional intelligence and assertive communication.
