Anger can be a Useful Response!

Anyone can become angry. That is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose and in the right way is not easy.” – Aristotle

Anger can be a useful response in some situations. However if it gets out of hand, if it causes rage and inappropriate behavior with physical or mental abuse, then this is not healthy.

Anger is an aggressive state. It’s a response to aggression toward yourself by another person.

Anger Management Training will help you to understand your angry responses, will help you understand your stresses and how to communicate better and importantly, it will enhance your understanding of your emotions and those of your spouses, relatives, friends and co-workers.

Anger can be controlled and alleviated, in most cases, by Anger Management Training.

Anger Management, a Neglected Topic in Gang Intervention

In many U.S. cities and some rural areas, gangs are exploding and causing alarm to residents as well as local, state, and federal politicians. The most typical response to gang violence is to increase law enforcement devoted to cracking down on youth criminals. Prosecuting attorneys have used creative approaches to gang intervention, including injunctions and the enforcement of housing codes.

Prevention is generally an after-thought with limited resources and little tracking of the success or lack of success of these efforts. Strategies to frighten at-risk youth such as “scared straight” and D.A.R.E. have been funded for many years with few results.

Legitimate anger management classes, which include pre- and post-tests, curricula, client workbooks, DVDs and other teaching material actually work. These courses, when taught by Certified Anger Management Facilitators, lead to a decrease in person-directed violence, an increase in empathy, an increase in precision learning, as well as an increase in self-esteem and academic achievement.

The state of Texas is considering making anger management a required course for all middle and high school students. If this measure becomes law, there will be a decrease in aggression and violence in adult life. Some school districts in Texas are already using anger management with considerable success.

In addition to skill enhancement in anger management, stress management, communication and emotional intelligence, anger management classes can be used in lieu of suspension, expulsion, or school transfer. Courses for parents can, and should, be available through adult schools for parents of at-risk youth. Finally, anger management should be used in all gang prevention programs and substance abuse programs.

The 10/90 Rule

10% of Life are the happening events; 90% are our responses!

So here we are living our lives and responding to those events which affect us. All of those happening events are stresses brought to bear on our very being. 10 % of life represents all of those happening events. 90% of our lives represents our responses to those stresses.

It is important to understand that stress is like an energy that pushes us. Sometimes that energy is very positive. For example, when we get a raise or promotion at work we feel great. Similarly, when anything good happens to us we are energized and uplifted.

But what happens when that stress is what I call a negative stress. Then we are obligated to respond. There are times when that negative stress is over-whelming such as a severe injury or illness and it’s difficult to respond. Our response here is to seek help.

And other times our responses are angry responses, which many of us exhibit as the result of a real or perceived aggression against us, very often leading to inappropriate behavior, rage, physical or verbal abuse and difficult relationships.

Anger Management Training will teach you how to handle your Stress and Anger responses while also helping you to improve your Communication skills and your Emotional Intelligence or your understanding of the meanings of what others are saying in your relationships.

If you have recurring episodes of aggressive, angry behavior, you should seek Anger Management Training before it’s mandated by a court of law. It will improve your life, your health and your relationships.

Anger Management Services for Austin, Texas Mayor

The mayor of Austin, Texas, has to decide between anger management and community service to remove the charge of assault from his record. Mayor Will Wynn acknowledged that sometimes his anger can be a problem. Problem anger does not discriminate. High-profile people are not only subjected to public humiliation and scrutiny, but also, among other things, to moral judgment regarding their ability to uphold their position. For leaders in government, hospitals, or corporations, demonstrating key conflict resolution skills lends to trust and credibility in the public’s eye.

This is an election year.  As a community, we need to be able to trust our leaders and peacekeepers. Can they control their own emotions? Do they have the ability to lead with sound reason? Reason is evaded when problem anger arises.

We cannot underscore the importance of key emotional intelligence skills such as empathy, compassion, awareness, and social conscience when resolving conflict in the face of crisis. A leader’s ability to remain grounded and calm is key to successful conflict and anger management.

Trust and credibility are important in leadership roles. These roles are not limited to the government. Leaders are all kinds of decision-makers – managers, executives, physicians, attorneys, and law enforcement, to name a few. These types of positions often are appointed to individuals who have integrity and the ability to guide. Maintaining these roles to the extent they are intended requires exceptional discipline of one’s emotions, understanding of one’s shortcomings, and having the ability to seek guidance when needed.

Anger Management and Causes of Anger: Changing for the Better

Anger and anger management can both be learned behaviors. We tend to learn behaviors from those around us. If we have lived with people who express anger in negative ways, we are likely to use the same approach.
The good news is that negative behaviors can be unlearned, and positive ones can be learned to replace them.

The key to changing old, destructive patterns of angry behaviors is to learn what contributes to your feelings of anger.

The following are common causes that provoke anger:

• Frustration and stress

• Being overtired

• Keeping feelings bottled up inside

• Feeling misunderstood or ignored

The consequences of uncontrolled anger can be devastating to personal relationships and physical well-being. Poor anger management is a key factor in domestic violence, child abuse, relationship problems, behavior problems, workplace violence, substance abuse, school and workplace violence and delinquency, and criminal behavior. Anger can actually cause or worsen health problems, including high blood pressure and depression.

According to several double blind studies, some over a 25 year period, high levels of hostility were directly correlated to fatal heart attacks, strokes, and cancer.

Frustration, pain, loss, and the unpredictable actions of others cause anger and are an inevitable part of life.

Our own behavior is the one thing we can control no matter the circumstances. Anger management techniques teach constructive ways to deal with issues that arise and how to replace destructive behaviors with new ones that will enhance the overall quality of your life.
