Our anger management program is psycho-therapeutic in that it helps an individual to understand his/her attitudes and beliefs about anger, and identify the emotions and situations at its root. This is conducted in an individual setting and not a group setting. This is done to address the individual’s specific life circumstances and how that individual’s lack of emotional control has caused relationship and/or legal issues.
There are a minimum of 12 individual sessions. Each session builds upon the other. The program challenges the individual to examine his/her responses to emotional triggers. It offers a wide range of activities to help the individual learn and practice new, more effective ways of responding to anger and the emotions that cause it. While understanding anger and emotions will not always keep a person from experiencing anger, it can help to dilute the intensity and guide the person away from destructive, and toward constructive, responses to his/her anger.
