Anger Management

Does your anger interfere with your:  

  • Relationships?
  • Health?
  • Employment?
  • Legal Status?

If the answer to any of these is yes, the Anger Management Group can help you achieve your goals for change and self-improvement.  

Our Anger Management Group is a 8-week program designed to provide help to individuals who have a history of difficulty in managing anger. 

The program provides a supportive and non-judgmental environment and teaches the “ABCs” of managing three areas where people with anger problems have difficulty:  

Arousal

Group members are trained to recognize high arousal states and to develop relaxation skills

Behavior

Group members are taught to recognize aggressive behavior and to substitute assertive forms of expression

Cognitive

Group members are instructed to recognize and change thoughts that elicit anger

Group members are taught to recognize situations or events that trigger anger and to utilize more effective approaches to managing anger.  

Our professionals employ a variety of anger management approaches that include assessment, self-monitoring, group therapy, psycho-education, role play and relaxation techniques.

Matt Lindberg, MA, LPCC is  the facilitator of the Anger Management Group.
