Anger is a basic emotion that is central to the survival of our species. Feeling angry is a natural human response to certain life experiences, and it occurs particularly at times when we come under attack, feel deceived, insulted or frustrated. Anger helps to relieve built-up energy and tension.
We are programmed to express anger from birth, yet in some cases this perfectly healthy emotion can become excessive and may be a symptom of more complex issues such as mental health problems. When it gets out of control, anger can turn destructive and can significantly impact quality of life – affecting your career, your relationships and overall well-being.
Often, anger problems are due to poor management of our emotions. Anger, like all emotions, involves physiological and chemical changes in the body – affecting heart rate and adrenaline levels. For some people these surges can become addictive and destructive. There is a fine line between acknowledging anger and venting it until it is out of control.
Anger management therapy is designed to help individuals learn how to control their anger more effectively and lessen the impact their anger problems are having on their lives.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Treatment for Anger Disorders
One of the most common types of psychotherapy is cognitive behavioral therapy. The purpose of the treatment is to help an angry person recognize the self-defeating negative thoughts that lie behind anger flare-ups. Patients work with a mental health professional to learn how to manage stressful life circumstances more successfully.
The cognitive behavioral approach has many benefits. Patients / Clients learn to:
• Cope better with difficult life situations
• Positively resolve conflicts in relationships
• Deal with grief more effectively
• Mentally handle emotional stress caused by illness, abuse or physical trauma
• Overcome chronic pain, fatigue and other physical symptoms
Cognitive therapies are structured and may offer quicker results than other approaches. Better yet, the results are lasting, with patients showing significantly decreased relapse rates.
This sort of treatment tends to focus on specific problems and personal triggers. You’ll learn how to deal with your particular issues using conscious, goal-centered strategies.
The specific steps in cognitive behavioral therapy include:
• Identification of situations or circumstances in your life that lead to trouble
• Awareness of your thoughts and emotions surrounding anger triggers
• Acknowledgement of inaccurate, negative thought patterns
• Relearning of healthier, positive thought patterns
Very few risks are associated with cognitive behavioral therapy, and the benefits are plentiful. You will likely explore painful feelings and emotions, but you will do it in a safe, guided manner.
Cognitive therapy is considered a short-term approach and generally lasts about 10 to 20 sessions depending upon your specific disorder, the severity of your symptoms, the amount of time you’ve been dealing with anger symptoms, your rate of progress, your current stress levels, and the amount of support you receive from friends and family.
