Anger is normal. Everyone gets mad from time to time, and often that anger is understandable. While most people can contain their anger and just feel irritated, walk around with heated thoughts in their head, or vent their anger to a friend, some people have difficulty managing their anger appropriately. These people might yell, use profanity, and insult or belittle others. They might throw things, kick walls, slam doors, or engage in threatening behaviors.
Anger can have several negative impacts on a person’s life. It can strain relationship with family members, including children, and can lead to separation or divorce. It can lead to conflicts with coworkers, and cause problems that lead to being reprimanded at work. Anger can cause tension with friends and neighbors, and lead to hostility with strangers, including engaging in road rage or other aggressive behaviors.
Through therapy you will begin to understand the causes and triggers of your anger. Along with that you will work on learning to recognize the early warning signs that you are becoming angry. Therapy will also address alternate ways of thinking about the situations that get you angry. It will also help you develop the skills to manage your anger in an appropriate manner without becoming hostile or aggressive.
