Anger management is a process that helps people identify stressors and triggers, learn utilization of healthy coping skills and avoid unsafe and potentially damaging behaviors. People learn steps to help them stay calm and handle tense situations in a more constructive and positive way. The main purpose of anger management is to help decrease the negative effects of having uncontrollable anger. Internal and external personal events are explored and learning new coping mechanisms can help with reducing the emotional and physical arousal that anger can cause. The support of a mental health professional can help one gain insight into why their anger can spin out of control. Strategies like mindfulness, self-awareness, self-control and breathing techniques help with developing healthy ways to express anger and frustration and regain a sense of stability and ease.
