Anger Management Therapy and Skills Program

 

Is anger wrecking your life?

Do angry outbursts affect how others communicate with you?

Do you ever feel guilty about how you reacted in an angry state?

Do you get into fights at home or in public?

Have you ever “lost control?”

Has anger or revenge taken over certain areas of your life?

 

Family Life Mental Health Center’s Anger Management Therapy and

Skills Program can help! Family Life Mental Health Center’s Anger Management providers are professionals, with a background in group dynamics, domestic violence, psychological assessment and addictive behaviors.

Program Description:

Family Life Mental Health Center’s Anger Management Therapy and Skills Program is a twelve (12) week group process that is offered several times a year, one (1) evening per week. The program is both educational and psychotherapeutic in nature. Two important concepts covered are: power and control vs. equality and communication over aggression vs. assertiveness.

 

The core of the program is learning multiple proven, effective techniques to manage anger and its accompanying behaviors. Multiple learning styles will be used including handouts, lecture, role playing, reflection, journaling, relaxation techniques and observation by at least two (2) staff members.

 

The groups will be facilitated with a limited number of group members to provide opportunity for all to grow and learn. An evaluation process will be used to demonstrate change through discussion, testing, and reports of learning and behavior changes.

 

This program is not exclusive to our current clients. Anyone can participate whether or not you receive services at FLMHC.

 

 

Program Goals

 

The goals of the Anger Management Therapy and Skills program are:

 

• To assess individual needs and scope of problem for purpose of treatment planning.

 

• To help people accept personal responsibility for emotions and actions and to stop violent and aggressive behavior.

 

• To target specific problem areas, patterns, and triggers.

 

• To learn to internalize at least two different approaches to manage anger and skill development.

 

• To heal relationships and more effectively cope with internal and external relating and functioning.

 

Attendance

 

Following the completion of an initial assessment and treatment plan by a therapist, clients will be contacted with notification of when each group will begin. Groups are usually held in the evenings. Clients are matched to groups that fit their schedules and time frames for completion. If clients miss a group or individual session, it must be scheduled to make up all of the missed information.
