CBT Anger Management
CBT Anger Management typically involves training to recognise increases and stress and anger, as well as teaching skills to lower stress levels to head off an outburst. A range of practical cognitive and behavioural skills are often taught, such as: relaxation training, cognitive restructuring (thought challenging), problem solving, communication skills, etc.
CBT anger management can be delivered in individual or group format. In individual anger management attention may also be given to underlying core beliefs that fuel the anger. This will frequently be included in the latter stages, with the more practical skills taught early on, in order to more rapidly bring anger expression under control.
