We all experience anger sometimes. Anger is an adaptive emotion meant to protect us from threats and injustices by boosting our heart rate and increasing adrenaline, motivating us to take action. However, anger doesn’t affect everyone the same. Where one group may respond to triggers with intense, sudden anger, others may internalize their anger and appear chronically grumpy.

We understand that people have varying tolerances for anger. If anger disrupts your daily life or interferes with your relationships, our anger management classes can teach you proven techniques to express yourself in a more healthy manner.

How Do You Know if Anger Management Classes Are Right for You?

According to one study, about 75% of all people who receive anger management treatment see an improvement in their ability to control their anger. When anger controls your life and affects the people closest to you, anger management classes can be a saving grace. Anger management groups teach you the strategies necessary to cope with your emotions.

If you answer yes to any of these questions, anger management classes could be right for you.

  • I have a history of combative behavior.
  • As a result of my anger, I have experienced many negative consequences.
  • There have been times where my anger has stopped me from achieving my goals.
  • I would probably be more successful in my life if I had better control of my anger.
  • I am frequently angry, and that anger lasts a long time and has trouble subsiding.

*If your anger has led you to abusive behavior such as hitting, name calling and roughness with your spouse, DV treatment is recommended and not anger management.
