Do you feel angry a lot of the time?
Are you worried that your anger is out-of-control?
Is your anger hurting your personal relationships and work?
Do you think you have to get angry to get what you want?
Does your anger cycle continue after the triggering event has passed?
Are you using alcohol or other drugs to try to manage your anger?
Are you are getting angry with your loved-ones, rather than dealing with the situation that sparked off your anger in the first place?
Anger management is not just about learning relaxation tools or behavioral modification. Anger is a symptom, not the root cause of your distress.
Anger management and therapy for men in my Denver, Colorado, counseling and psychotherapy practice:
In our macho world, boys learn to control their feelings, to never cry, and that violence is a problem-solving method. The one emotion that is supported as part of manhood is the emotion of anger. Most men are actually very good at controlling their anger when they need to. Male anger and violence are not about anger management. They are rooted in the response toward power and control in order to legitimize and affirm masculinity. Anger can be used to justify oppressing others, to elevate low self-worth, and to hide or displace other emotions such as using aggression to hide fear, grief and loss, or a sense of powerlessness.

Anger management and therapy for women in my Denver, Colorado, counseling and psychotherapy practice:
In general, unlike men, women have been socialized to connect emotionally and, yet, to not express anger. If they do express anger, they get labeled and punished as aggressive, or “bitches”, forcing women to deal indirectly with anger problems. As a result, anger in women is mostly expressed as withdrawal, but can also appear as blame, resentment, passive-aggressive behavior, or depression (anger directed at self). Alternatively, like men, women can also use anger to assert power, control, and identity, even in the face of or in rebellion to social condemnation. Not surprisingly, therefore, women can also manifest anger issues in ways that may be unhealthy to self and relationships.
