ABLE COUNSELING ANGER MANAGEMENT:

Puzzle Pieces of a Family CERTIFICATE AFTER EIGHT SESSIONS OF ANGER MANAGEMENT 

 
How do I know if Anger Management,classes are going to help?

There are several studies that show the effectiveness of anger management on inmate populations and not the general public.  In a recent survey of our own participants, about 96%  stated that anger management classes helped them improve their behavior and their relationships. The Able Counseling Anger Management program is effective because the program motivates change in the client.  The motivation to change is a strong indicator of a successful anger management program outcome.  If the participant recognizes that the behavior is problematic and is seeking to learn how to improve it, our experience has been that anger management classes will help.  Able Counseling uses is evidenced based that is empirically validated that has been proven to be very effective.

Question: How do I know if I have an “Anger Problem”?
If your answer is yes to any of the six symptoms, help is available ASAP!
1) Do you notice physiological signs when you get angry that cause distress like feeling dizzy, nausea, out of breath, sweating, etc.
2) Do you notice psychological signs when you get angry that cause distress like depression, anxiety, guilt, shame, irritated, etc.
3) Does your anger last longer than you would like?
4) Does your anger cause problems in relationships, such as allowing it to ruin a relationship with someone you loved or liked?
5)Does your anger happen frequently?
6)Do you get out of control when you get angry?
If you are answering “yes” to many of these questions, then likely anger is a problem for you and you should get some help or a consultation. call 216-291-8817 or [email protected]
Is Anger good or bad for your health?
The answer to this is fairly obvious, untreated pervasive anger management problems will eventually cause some health problems either physical or psychological.  There is a direct connection between being constantly angry, competitive, and aggressive, and early heart disease. For example, recent research suggests that men who have poor anger management skills are more likely to suffer a heart attack before age 55 than their more emotionally controlled peers. A separate study indicated that older male subject's hostility ratings (how hostile and irritable they tend to act towards others) predicted heart disease more accurately than other known risk factors including cholesterol, alcohol intake, cigarette smoking and being overweight.

ABLE COUNSELING PARENTING:

Puzzle Pieces of a Family CERTIFICATE AFTER EIGHT SESSIONS OF PARENTING

To parent effectively, it’s not enough to simply avoid the obvious dangers like abuse, neglect, or overindulgence. Maintaining children's health and safety, promoting their emotional well-being, instilling social skills, and preparing children intellectually can be reared by parents who find a way to combine warmth and sensitivity with clear behavioral expectations. Parenting classes provide advice, strategies, and tools on how to raise children and provide an opportunity for parents to share ideas and concerns with parents going through similar issues.
