Anger Management Therapy
Myth: Anger is not bad, it is an emotion. Fact: Emotions give you information on your wants, needs, and desires.
What is not recommended is rage — when the Incredible Hulk turns green, violent, and loud. There is a different way. Anger is useful and can be beneficial when you have the skills and the support to express yourself when an issue arises.
When learning to deal with anger, it is usually more about managing your behaviors, e.g. anger-management. Anger is usually the outcome of another emotion, e.g., disappointment, fear, grief, shock, and/or sadness. It is usually wishing you could have changed the outcome.
Anger, on the other hand, is a useful emotion. It is an emotion to let you know what your needs and desires are. It also informs you if your values have been inflicted upon.
At Collaborative Counseling Michelle Inauen treats anger-management with the big picture in mind. We teach assertive communication skills, emotional management, and work with building self-esteem to handle anger in a healthy way.
