Are anger management courses an effective way of dealing with anger?

Anger can be a healthy response to stressful situations or events. We’ve all gotten angry and it can help to communicate to others that we’re not okay with something. In fact, not having the ability to display an emotional response is a whole other issue. However, for some people, uncontrollable, overly frequent or inappropriate expressions of anger can damage relationships, career success or more. Managing anger with maladaptive coping strategies or behaviours can push the thoughts and feelings deeper and eventually make the anger control even more difficult.

Shift Psychological can help the anger management process by identifying and treating the origins of the anger – the messages about self and the world that cause it. Then, using our unique approach we remove them. This results in an absence of reaction and an appropriate level of calm and increased mental health. This anger management program is something that gets to the root and provides lasting change.
