Authored by William G. DeFoore, Ph.D.

Anger management information can be confusing, with all of the worksheets, tests and opinions. I'll try to simplify things for you with a clear, three-part overview of the different ways you can get help.

This will also help you organize your thoughts and plans as you go forward in addressing your anger issues.

Your Three Anger Management Resources

  1. Written Information will help you understand yourself and why you get angry. You will get an assessment so you can test your anger level to know where you stand and what you need to do.
  2. Services provide classes, online courses, counseling sessions (telephone or in person) and Intensive Programs.
  3. Products will give you lots of books, Ebooks, CDs and audio download programs to enjoy at home or away.

You will find all of the help you need in these three categories.

This site is here for you and your family, so I hope you find exactly what you're looking for.

What Kinds Of Information Do You Need?

  • What is anger, anyway? It's not aggression or violence. Aggression and violence are actions. Anger is an emotion. Anger is not bad--it's the unhealthy expression of anger that's the problem. Sometimes all that is needed is the right kind of activity to provide healthy anger release and resolution.
  • Here's a good definition of angerAnger is an emotion you have when you feel threatened or opposed, or when someone you care about is threatened or opposed. In other words, anger is a protective emotion, and you need this protection to take care of yourself and your loved ones.
  • Why is anger such a problem for so many people? Here's your answer! It's simply because most people don't understand it or know what to do with it. That's why there is so much uncontrolled anger and not so much healthy anger.

  • Why is it so hard to manage anger?
    • Because it is such a powerful emotion. It's supposed to be powerful, for your protection, remember? Like zebras and donkeys, we're protective.
    • Because nobody gave you the information you needed as a child, so you never learned how to manage anger in healthy ways.
    • Because you probably didn't have good role models to teach you any anger control techniques and ways of dealing with stress that really work.
    • Because anger (and all emotions) operate on a sub-conscious levelmeaning it is hard to control them consciously.
    • Because it is hard to forgive. Read these quotes on forgiveness.

Other important information includes:

  • How to test your anger level and develop a plan for change.
  • How to heal old emotional wounds that can cause anger problems.
  • How to deal with abusive relationships, put a stop to verbal abuse, and deal with angry people.
  • How to use the upside of anger so that it works for you instead of against you.
  • How to release, express and use your anger in healthy ways.
