WHAT IS ANGER MANAGEMENT


Anger Management
is a course of treatment that seeks to help people whose anger emotion is causing negative problems in their personal, business or public life.

Anderson & Anderson's Certified Anger Management Facilitators are influencing how anger management is practiced throughout the United States. Anger Management has moved from the basic idea of management of anger to a broader understanding of the relationship between anger, stress, communication, self-awareness, social awareness, impulse control, optimism, decision making, self-perception, flexibility and relationship management. This provides the client with self understanding (awareness), learning to control one’s emotions, social awareness for better interactions and more productive relationship management. In most cases reduced recidivism is also achieved.

Professionally Certified Anger Management Facilitators (CAMF) take an active interest is specializing in understanding anger and all of it’s ramifications. Anger Management is not psychotherapy. Anger Management is psycho-education and a highly personalized form of treatment.

Anger Management does not seek to help those in need of counseling to find ways of avoiding their anger altogether. According to the American Psychiatric Association, anger is a normal human emotion. It is not a mental disorder, consequently it is not responsive to traditional counseling, psychotherapy or psychotropic medication. Additionally anger is not listed in The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) DSM-IV-TR.

Anger is exemplified by anger outbursts or tempers that flair out of proportion to the causing stimuli or situation. Anger can be aggressive as in verbal or physical abuse but also passive as in emotional blackmail, negative control issues, silent treatment etc. The individual experiencing anger often lashes out against family members, friends, acquaintances coworkers, even strangers.

Anger is a problem under the following circumstances:

• When it occurs too frequently
• When it is too intense
• When it lasts too long
• When it leads to health issues
• When it destroys interpersonal relationships: personal, work and public
• When it results in person-directed aggression: verbal or physical abuse

Anger can be managed using skills/tools that can be learned through a course of proven Anger Management curriculum. Anger Management is offered in an Individual Session, Group Class format, and Accelerated Course.

• Self Observing Self

The first step is to call Richard at 678-576-1913 and we get to know one another. It is usually fairly brief but provides you the opportunity to discuss current situation and what some of the issues are.

NOW OPTIONAL DUE TO ECONOMY:
An Anger Assessment is administered that provides your strengths and weaknesses related to the topics we teach and Action Plan we assign to help effect behavioral changes for better outcomes in your intimate, work and public relationships.

Our clients find the insights provided are 'spot on' and help with personal understanding of yourself. It is well worth the money.

Volunteer participants usually set up a Individual One on One Session to speciffically address their issues. This is the shortest most effective intervention method. You are immediately given an Action Plan that start your anger management awareness.

Choose:

Inappropriate anger often causes problems with coworkers, placing a job at risk, threatening a relationship with a spouse, family, people the individual cares about, causes them legal problems or affects their health.

For the motivated individual who realizes that bad things are about to happen to themselves and knows that a change is needed, Anger Management training can help get their lives back on firmer ground. With willingness and work the individual will learn tools that help their specific anger issues.

The effects of anger management are far reaching. The techniques allow the individual to learn how to recognize the onset of anger, and seek to diffuse the emotion before it takes over the reaction process. The participant learns how to focus the anger on the issue at hand with appropriate response, rather than transferring the anger onto another person or situation that has little to do with the actual emotion felt.

By far the most important effects of active anger management skills are the changes that take place in family dynamics, work place and even public life.

Fighting within a family unit is reduced. Those in the anger management program and their loved ones learn to interact with one another in a more constructive manner allowing long term improvement and harmony. By working together and judiciously applying anger management techniques, a permanent change in anger expression may be affected by the participant. This of course implies the participant admitting they need help and have a problem and are willing to learn, grow and change.

We have been asked over and over..." How effective is anger management?"

Answer: Depends on the individual willingness to change and embrace what has been taught. You can only work towards changing yourself. Trying to change others is not the answer.

Our client feedback has been amazing. Clients are seeing huge positive changes in their personal relationships with renewed trust and forgiveness. Old relationship patterns changing to more positive ones strengthening intimacy between family members. Clients are reporting their children's behavior is improving once their own anger "spats" have dissolved and are no longer an issue.

OLD SAYING: “ YOU CAN LEAD A HORSE TO WATER, BUT YOU CAN'T MAKE HIM DRINK”

MEANING: You may be able to show a person what will help them but according to this proverb, you cannot force him to use it even though it is in his best interest. The individual participant has to decide they want a better life and relationship to those around them. They choose to change. For those that don’t, often their lives self-destruct.

WORD OF HELP: It is tempting as a family member or coworker of someone undergoing anger management to expect the person with the anger problem to do all the changing and growing. Often however, we find family and coworkers etc are invested in the status quo (how things are/were). They sometimes unknowingly try to sabotage the good behavior to stimulate the old anger because that is what they know. Even though they don’t like it. It is called human nature. So when buttons start getting pushed newly learned emotional intelligence kicks in and doesn’t accept it any longer.

So those around the individual are also required to change the way they interact with him/her. This may involve the avoidance of certain trigger words or gestures, always having the last word, always fighting to be the one that is right, being the one in control, and whatever other dynamics are working within the relationship. New cooperation and understanding is needed when the anger management graduate works on employing various techniques learned. In essence it is a “team” effort.

With growth be prepared to have to shy away from negative people or those that do not support your new path to managing your anger in a healthy way. It is a lifelong pursuit that does get easier with time. Richard is seeing amazing results within four to six weeks time among his clients.

You will also learn to deal with responding to other people's anger.

If you recognize anger and stress (conflict) in your life and it is affecting your relationships you owe it to yourself to check us out.

In one meeting you will be convinced to continue for a few weeks longer to see results.

New attitudes shifted, new perceptions embraced, new behaviors applied, new anger and stress management tools learned, anger and stress dissolving away. Life returns to an easier way of living. Life is good.
