Chronic Anger, the most common form of addiction
All over the world, thousands of people are verbally abused, physically assaulted, maimed or murdered everyday because of anger and rage. Families are ruined, marriages ended, children traumatized, careers lost, opportunities missed and personal and public property destroyed.
To “assess” means to take an honest look. Many people have a hard time facing reality and the damage tha is caused even though they have suffered personal consequences because of their behavior. There are people out there who have suffered and have felt alone and powerless. There is hope, there is help.
The habit of anger abuse is one that is reinforced socially. People learn to abuse anger from the examples set by parents, peers and the media.
Therapy can help people to unlearn these destructive patterns, and can show people how to replace their anger habit with peaceful alternatives in responding to their triggers in nonviolent ways. It can help people discover how they learned their anger pattern, understand the nature of anger, how to change your mind and behavior, the importance of forgiveness and how to focus on values and goals.
