Who can benefit from anger management?

You might not realize you need anger management until someone expresses concerns about your anger or irritability. While anger is a normal human emotion that everyone experiences from time to time, you might experience it at a higher level than most people or as a disproportionate reaction.

Some signs you might benefit from anger management include:

  • Blaming others for your problems
  • Constant frustration
  • Frequent outbursts
  • A pessimistic mindset
  • Violent aggression
