Anger Management Q & A

What is anger management?

Anger management is a type of counseling that helps you better control angry outbursts. It teaches you to identify and reduce the emotions and physiological arousal you experience when angry or enraged. 

By learning how to cope with these feelings, you can improve your relationships, outlook, and health. What’s more, anger management teaches you about healthy communication, handling frustration, and dealing with being upset. 

Who can benefit from anger management?

Request an anger management consultation with Vincent if you regularly experience angry outbursts or feel out of control. That’s especially true if your anger interferes with your relationships, career, or physical health. 

After reviewing your medical records and discussing your symptoms, Vincent can develop a treatment plan that helps you feel better.

What happens during an anger management appointment?

Vincent provides anger management virtually using telehealth.

At the beginning of your visit, he asks various questions, including how often you feel angry, if certain situations trigger it, and if you experience any other symptoms, like anxiety or depression. Next, he reviews your health history. Let Vincent know if you take any prescription drugs, vitamins, or supplements.

Vincent also has you fill out a questionnaire and asks how you cope during outbursts — answer all of his questions honestly. He uses the information you provide to make treatment recommendations. Typically, that includes a combination of prescription medication, counseling, and relaxation techniques.

What are the benefits of anger management?

Enrolling in anger management therapy offers various benefits, including:

  • Improved communication
  • Enhanced problem-solving skills
  • Healthier thought patterns
  • Better coping techniques

Anger management can even help you identify triggers — if you know what makes you angry, you can take steps to avoid it in the future.

Is anger management effective?

Anger management provides lasting results, but only if you commit to your treatment plan. To ensure a positive outcome, attend each of your check-ups and incorporate the skills you learn in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) into your daily life.
