Family Practitioner

The main treatment options are individual counseling or a group program. In individual counseling sessions, you will work with a psychiatrist, psychologist, counselor, or other mental health professional to identify sources of anger, behaviors your display, and any underlying experiences that may be contributing to your anger. You will learn techniques to control your anger, as well as ways to deal with past issues affecting you today. In a group program, you will participate in a class with others to learn about anger, its effect on you, ways to identify anger, and how to effectively deal with those feelings when you experience them.
