We’ve all seen those Snickers commercials where crankiness is eliminated by eating a candy bar and the person is restored to their normal self, right? Ah…if only it were that easy! Anger has a way of sneaking up on us and turning us into someone that we never thought we would be. Unfortunately, candy bars don’t often do the trick in helping us to handle the anger in more effective ways than physically tackling the source of it like we are on the football field!
I have worked with individuals and groups to learn healthier and more effective ways to manage their anger. Sometimes anger becomes a problem when it starts affecting our relationships with our spouse/children/family members. Maybe someone close to us has mentioned how you do not seem happy or that you have changed. Maybe you are struggling with anger and just “stuff” it deep down inside, expecting it to magically go away on its own. But, like eating a Snickers, it does not really work like that!
Some people cringe when they think of taking part in a group of people. What I am suggesting here is different! This is an INDIVIDUAL class. Together we can sort out your anger, and look at ways to express that emotion in a more helpful way. By participating in a six-part individual Anger Management class, you can learn about yourself and how to handle conflicts/negative situations in a much more productive manner. We look at many different things during the class:
- what are some of the individual triggers for your anger
- what are some of the negative thoughts that are present for you
- understanding your communication style
- your personal history, and how it relates to your current emotions
- methods of dealing with difficult emotions
We can find a more effective way to address the issues that are causing your anger, improve your relationships with others, and develop better methods to express what you are feeling. So, put down the Snickers (at least temporarily) and call me to set up an appointment!
