Anger Management Certificate Package

Anger is a basic human emotion and an unavoidable part of life. To exhibit and direct occasional anger is normal and necessary; however, when that anger negatively impacts a person's relationships and drives them toward destructive and dangerous behavior, it's time to seek professional help. The people who are most often affected by an individual's chronic anger are their friends and loved ones. Targets of chronic anger often ignore or hide the pain that their loved one is causing in an effort to keep some semblance of harmonious function within the relationship. This could be a parent and child, a husband and wife, or just two friends.

This 8 session anger management certificate program helps patients manage their anger in a healthy way, and direct it toward appropriate outlets to restore their quality of life and mental health. Chronic anger is one of the numerous behaviors we treat to help patients get healthy control of their lives.

Patients learn how internalization of anger leads to hostility and depression. This program helps individuals develop coping methods and stress management skills that help them learn how control and appropriately process their anger without engaging in extreme behavior. Self-awareness is a key approach in this process, as it enables patients to take a realistic account of the how their anger has dictated their disposition and actions.

The Dangers and Pitfalls of Uncontrolled Anger

When a person can't control their anger, they pose a great danger to themselves and those around them. In addition to some of the long-term physical dangers associated with untreated chronic anger, such as high blood pressure, ulcer and increased heart rate, it can also lead to:

  • Incarceration or legal problems
  • Assault and physical danger
  • The deterioration of social and professional relationships
  • The development of a drug or alcohol problem

Uncontrolled anger can be one of the greatest threats to an individual's overall mental health. It can lead to a host of other issues, such as severe depression, anxiety, and addiction. This package is designed to teach you to explore the roots of their anger, gives you rational, constructive, and tangible ways to channel your angry emotions without letting them take complete control.
