"The Price of Anger"

“Shattered relationships, broken families, friendships in ruins, job loss, jail time, embarrassment”

In all my years as a psychologist developing and teaching the Maryland anger management program I have heard client after client describe the losses their anger has cost them. Through all the pain, the one consistency I have heard is how misunderstood most people who struggle with anger management feel. The trouble for many is not the point they are trying to make, but the way they are trying to make it. Its rare that I treat a person struggling with anger management who didn’t on some level have a valid point to make. The problems begin when you lose control and become aggressive in making that point. Instead of effectively dealing with the problem you end up being seen as the problem. This can leave you feeling unheard, misunderstood, blamed, and oftentimes even angrier than you were to start with.

“It doesn’t have to be this way!!!”

“Imagine the difference having better control over your emotions can make in your life – no more feeling misunderstood, no more burned bridges or missed opportunities!!”

In helping hundreds of clients overcome their anger management problem I’ve learned that stuffing anger or pretending problems don’t exist are dead end approaches. You can’t go through life without injustices occurring and feeling angered about it. To help my many clients I developed a systematic program that can teach you to deal with anger in different ways; ways that will leave you feeling in control and empowered
