This 12 week Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) oriented group focuses on helping individuals better understand their anger and develop the skills to break out of their usual anger patterns.
Anger is a normal part of the human experience. That being said, for some of us it can become destructive in our lives and lead us to behavior that’s not in line with our values. An unhealthy relationship with anger creates consequences that we wouldn’t choose from a calm state of mind. While anger can be difficult in our lives, it is still a normal, healthy part of the human experience, and something with which we are capable of developing a better relationship.
This 12 week CBT oriented group focuses on helping people better understand their anger and develop the skills to change their anger patterns. Areas this group will touch upon include discussing triggers, understanding our own “cues” or how to spot our anger, developing personalized approaches to our anger, and building a set of skills around being able to step out of our normal reactive anger patterns.
At the end of this group the hope is that you will be able to
- catch yourself getting angry quickly
- step out of your normal pattern and
- act in a way that meets your needs without creating unnecessary negative consequences
