Controlling Your Anger Before It Controls You

Anger is a healthy emotion. However, it can occur out of proportion to its trigger. In these cases, feeling of anger can damage relationships, obstruct a person’s decision-making process, and cause harm. Suppressing and storing up anger can also have a damaging impact. When one is triggered, anger can be difficult to stop in its tracks. However, detecting emotion early can be critical. Learning to control anger can limit emotional damage and allow a person to redirect their thought processes to a more constructive place. In this group, learn how to: reduce physiological arousal and emotions that cause anger; manage and identify the triggers; and learn to regulate responses.
