As necessary as coping skills are to dealing with anger (taking deep breaths, visualization, counting to 10, etc.), our approach to anger management is more trauma-centered. We believe most anger stems from adverse experiences in life, such as grief and loss.
Through guided processing of trauma in a safe space, we work with our clients to identify and resolve the underlying issues which are motivating their anger. We have found that good trauma work often accompanies a reduction in anger, resulting in less need for anger "management."
