People often describe their feelings of anger as “going from 1-10 in a split second” or “seeing red.” Some feel that after a certain point, it’s beyond their control. If you have experienced this and have found yourself acting in a way when you’re angry that you regret later, learning anger management techniques would be helpful for you. Did you know that your body sends you physiological signals to let you know just before you go from 1-10? If you can recognize it early on, there are ways you can learn to control how you respond to the emotion.
At PsychArizona, we can teach you how to manage this emotion-response cycle so that you recognize your emotion and have the ability to pause and think about what you want your response to be.
