Anger management aids with the coping of challenging behaviors in a healthy and productive manner. The skills taught range in methods but all with the intention of controlling physiological
responses to triggers, personal and social interactions and self-accountability. Directing emotions and controlling reactions is used in managing levels of stress and temperament in order to promote a healthier mind and healthier relationships. An anger management program is also conducted as a personal and confidential service to satisfy court-ordered requirements and amend pending legalities. This specialized support may be deemed necessary for individuals who are charged with specific crimes, such as assault. After a specified amount of anger management classes, a certificate of completion serves as an official compliance. Beyond appeasing legal orders, an individual concerned about or interested in improving emotion regulation may greatly benefit from anger management.
