Transcript of Anger Management Treatment Plan

for those undergoing issues with anger management

By: Dr. Newton Treatment Plan Introduction And always remember...

Anger is one letter away from danger. Anger and aggression are defined as behaviors that lead to the damage or destruction of a target identity. Aggressive acts may be directed at the self, others, or external objects. Treatment for anger management patients is particularly difficult because most patients are in denial of their issue. These circumstances make difficult the ability to treat patients using traditional talk therapy. Examples of treatment Thank you! Origin/ History of treatment During the 13th century treatment was created when Filippo Argenti, a member of the Cavicciuoli branch of the Adimari family, temper became very well know across town. Argenti was a wrathful politician as well, and ferocity was never seen in such a way during this time. Treatment with Argenti began by letting him be surrounded by others who had similar temper problems. Tempers in particular had a special type of treatment. Most of the people Argenti was surrounded by were children with bad tempers. This was done to hopefully help Argenti realize how immature tantrums were.
Treatment plans are now more individualized due to the varying cases of anger. With children, treatments are creative and are often done by using games. The purpose of these games is mostly to help the children learn how to become distracted and to avoid getting angry. Also to ignore people who are trying to provoke anger from the children. Relaxation techniques are also provided to children and adults. Square breathing for example, is a small chart given to the client which instructs them on how to become calm through a series of breathing exercises. How do you know you're angry? Symptoms of anger:
-fast heart beat
-Clenched jaws
-Clenched fists
-Fast breathing
-Tense muscles Some techniques on dealing with anger: Walk away from the situation
Write about it Creating a series of steps to follow and remember is an aspect of this treatment plan. Patients need to identify their goals, and with the therapists help create an action plan. Don't play the blame game.
We try to establish a mind set that blaming others will not help rid of anger, but rather taking responsibility for individual actions.
