Achieving the Win/Win
Anger Management & Behavior Modification
Understanding Anger & Control
Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life. And it can make you feel as though you’re at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion.
Remember, you can’t eliminate anger—and it wouldn’t be a good idea if you could. In spite of all your efforts, things will happen that will cause you anger; and sometimes it will be justifiable anger. Life will be filled with frustration, pain, loss, and the unpredictable actions of others. You can’t change that; but you can change the way you let such events affect you. Controlling your angry responses can keep them from making you even more unhappy in the long run.
Behavior Modification – Family Therapy Specific
Behavior Modification is used to target issues stemming from the disruptive disorders such as Attention Deficit Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Conduct Disorder, and more. This specific type of family therapy addresses unhealthy habits and unstable relationship patterns through natural and/or agreed upon consequences and rewards.
