Anger Management Therapies

There are several types of anger management therapy available. 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

The use of CBT for anger management helps because this therapy can help people regulate their frustration and improve social program-solving skills. 

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical behavioral therapy can help regulate emotions while providing skills and techniques for managing stress and improving relationships.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy can help people examine where their anger comes from and how they can respond healthily. It can also help people identify unhealthy patterns in their anger. 

Group Therapy

When people receive group therapy during anger management, they can connect with individuals who are in a similar position as themselves, which can make them feel like they are not alone in their anger. Because they feel understood, it can reduce feelings of anger. Group therapy also provides a supportive environment where peers can encourage each other along the anger management journey.
