What is Anger?

person struggling with mental healthAnger is a powerful emotion which we often feel when we are hurt, frustrated, afraid, and humiliated. One will immediately know that we are angry by looking at our body’s response to this emotion. Our blood temperature increases, adrenaline kicks in, and our breathing becomes faster.

As our anger takes over our body, it allows the stress we are feeling to go away. It is also our natural defense mechanism when we are facing adversity.

How does Anger Management Work?

As its name implies, anger management aims to help people in understanding how their anger works and understand why it happens. Some people’s anger can get too much and cause them to attack the people around them without them realizing it.

Counselors guide you through your emotions and see how your emotions react in certain situations. Sometimes, counselors will guide participants in reexamining past events and future situations where their emotions may peak. They will also sit down with you to explain what each emotion is and how to define it from others.

The sessions will also look through how the body reacts to what you are feeling and see if it is a cause of a defense mechanism of the person, or because of a mental health issue. Once all the triggers are identified, the session will help the person relax, get a hold in their emotions, and resolve the problems without going into an outburst.

Sessions for anger management vary in length, depending on the person taking it. It will also use a variety of techniques to help the patient taking it.
