How do you know if you need anger management?  You either find yourself unable to control your aggression or someone, maybe even the legal system,  has asked or ordered you to attend Anger Management Classes.

There is no cure for anger but instead learn to decrease the act of allowing certain emotions to take over a situation or getting educated about the triggers that lead to how you may act out.

We tell anyone that if you can manage anger you can manage happiness too.  The person does not change, unless you choose to change.

Psycho-education play a huge part in learning to control your outbursts.  Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) can also help with restructuring thoughts that lead to your emotions and eventually the way we all behave.

Perception or irrational thoughts maybe a leading cause.  At times, what you have experienced in the past may lead to preconceived notions and anger maybe a learned behavior.

Lastly, anger for many people is much easier to deal with than to talk about what is truly the issue at hand.  Someone maybe sad, depressed, anxious, fearful or many other things.  Learning to cope with life is and understanding yourself will in the end help you manage you; that would be the goal.  Change can only be brought by education and understanding while appropriate communicating the primary issue or emotion.
