Anger management is the process of learning to recognize the signs you are becoming angry and taking action to relax and deal with the situation in a beneficial way. Anger management doesn’t try to keep you from feeling anger or encourage you to hold it in. In reality, anger is a normal feeling when you know how to handle and express it adequately.
At Rose Hill Center, we understand that some things are outside of our control and make us angry. Anger management skills may be the most effective approach to managing your anger and reactions. Learn more about how anger management may be right for you or someone you love by calling 866.367.0220.
Annoyance, Violence, And Outbursts
Anger causes both physical and emotional symptoms. While experiencing these symptoms on occasion is common, a person with anger problems tends to experience them more often and more seriously. Anger is inevitable. However, when anger and annoyance lead to violence and outbursts, there may be a need for intervention and counseling.
It is essential to recognize and manage underlying mental health issues that may contribute to sudden outbursts and unexplained annoyance. It is vital to find a safe way to cope with the triggered feelings and emotions, possibly by the slightest irritation.
Developing The Right Coping Skills
Many things can cause anger, including stress, family problems, and financial issues. For some people, anger is caused by a primary disorder such as alcoholism or depression and may be a symptom of another serious mental health issue. Depending on how a person reacts to the emotion, anger may not always be a negative thing. Developing the right coping skills can channel this strong emotion toward a positive, healthy, and nonviolent outcome. Several coping skills that may be useful for anger management include:
- Take a timeout when you feel anger creeping in
- Think before you speak to avoid saying something that you might regret later
- Express your anger and frustration calmly
- Practice relaxation techniques
Learning to control one’s anger can be very challenging, but with proper guidance, residents at Rose Hill Center can learn to properly manage and redirect it. Please find out about the services and services offered by calling one of our specialists at 866.367.0220.
