Selecting The Right Anger Management Program


Visitors: 231

There are many types of anger management programs today. There are programs that are catered for parents, adolescents, employees, managers or even industry specific anger management programs such as for school teachers. However there is a tendency that one of these programs might not be effective in addressing your anger problems since they are sometimes conducted in a very generic manner to address as many people as possible. If you think you can't find the answer in any of these programs, you should consider finding your own anger management program.

Anger management programs could be divided based on their strategies. The first type is the psycho dynamic and humanistic approach to your anger. This approach is fitted for those who might have the ability to control their anger but feels really bad about it. The outburst of anger is not common but when it does, it is often devastating and would affect the whole group. The perfect person for this type of therapy is those people who gets angry but feels bad about it. This type of therapy addresses the source of the problem directly.

On the other hand another type of therapy is on cognitive behavior. This therapy is suited for people who can easily get angry with little to no reason at all. This type of therapy doesn't address the source of their anger but works with the patient until they can control their emotions.

These schools of thought in anger management could be found in three popular anger management therapies. The common therapy is the group therapy for anger management. The best group therapies are not the “labeled" therapy. You will be working with the group and at the same time, people around you will also help you in getting over those anger emotions. You should be able to acknowledge that something is wrong with you which will eventually lead to therapy.

The one on one therapy with a licensed therapist is also a popular option. Among the anger management programs, the one on one session clearly outlines what philosophy or technique that they will use to help you address your anger problems. Although this is quite costly, you should be able to get a tailor made solution as the therapist will be working with you alone without considering anyone.

Lastly, online therapy as one of the anger management programs is gaining some acceptance. Time is not a problem since you can do the therapy on your own. There are “classes" which are oftentimes, videotaped sessions wherein you just follow the anger management technique at your own time. There are thousands of programs online which should be evaluated carefully since some are very dangerous as they scam people and get them into paying thousands of dollars without any considerable results.

The last two anger management programs are good in itself. However it is still better that a person joins group therapy even with individualized or online sessions. With the group around you, your anger will be addressed faster as you receive comments and feedbacks from your peers who are struggling with the same problem.
