This program focuses on abusive power and control issues in relationships that often result in physical or emotional battery. Relationships not only include husband and wife, but also immediate and extended families or significant others in "live in" (or "lived in") relationships. Abuse means both physical and verbal ways of treating one another. Questions call a STOP office today!
This program focuses on explosive, contrary or emotional outbursts that result in physical or emotional battery with acquaintances other than family or significant others. The goal of anger management is to reduce both your emotional feelings and the physiological arousal that anger causes. You can't get rid of, or avoid, the things or the people that enrage you, nor can you change them, but you can learn to control your reactions.
There are psychological tests that measure the intensity of angry feelings, how prone to anger you are, and how well you handle it. But chances are good that if you do have a problem with anger, you already know it. If you find yourself acting in ways that seem out of control and frightening, you might need help finding better ways to deal with this emotion. Questions contact a STOP office today!
