It's normal to experience anger at times, but for some, it becomes so frequent, intense, or difficult to control that it negatively affects their life. Anger management is a structured therapeutic approach toward reducing one’s anger to a point where more appropriate coping and/or conflict management skills are used. Beliefs and thoughts leading toward anger outbursts are explored while healthy coping and interpersonal skills are put into practice.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) focuses on the interaction between thought and behavior. It examines negative thought patterns with the goal of changing responses to negative stimuli. CBT is often used to treat depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. You’ll find mental health professionals who specialize in CBT listed below.
