ANGER MANAMEMENT IS IMPORTANT BUT IT DOES NOT DEAL WITH THE ROOT CAUSES OF ANGER

Anger Management for Adults
You are now aware of the nature and types of anger, and the destructive impact it can have on your health. This can be avoided if you learn how to manage it properly. Anger management is not about healing, but management and healing work in tandem and are closely interlinked. Some techniques for anger management also lead to healing.
Anger management is what it says – a way of helping people to control the anger, process it safely and acquire communication skills. Those who have learned that aggression is the only way to communicate have to be re-educated on communication skills and how to handle the various crises they will meet during their life. Crucially, the person in an anger management programme or with a counsellor must be willing to change. It is my experience that people who are sent by the courts to do anger management only come because they are forced to, and it is more likely that this intervention will fail. There are two types of anger management. One is consistent and frequent management using a wide variety of techniques to soothe and soften the anger, the other is the immediate application of techniques in any situation where anger arises.
Anger management is an ongoing process that brings temporary relief, giving you space to work on your anger and ultimately to heal it. There are some problematic issues in the context of anger management. If the anger is toxic reflecting childhood trauma, it may be compounded by other complaints such as addiction, drug abuse, depression, anxiety, and a whole host of debilitating issues outlined in Appendix 1. Anger management, therefore, is a temporary technique until the sources of the anger have been dealt with and it is no longer needed.
