Understanding and controlling anger
If you believe that you have
a problem with anger, chances are that the people closest to you are even more
aware that your anger is hurtful. Anger itself keeps us from fully
realizing how much pain and suffering we are inflicting on others.
Best practice research tells us that the treatment of choice for anger is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). In practice this means that we will discover the roots of your anger, help you to recognize the early signs of anger developing so that you can take early preventive action, and give you the tools to deal with your life effectively in ways that don't involve getting angry.
We will select a set of homework materials that are right for you from the many good ones that are available, and you will have homework assignments to complete between sessions. These assignments will increase your understanding and over time will build more cognitive capacity for responding to situations in a constructive and effective way.
