First, it’s important and necessary to understand that stress, anger and aggression may be the principal factors that may precipitate an inappropriate act of violence towards another person. Intimate partners, family members, friends, co-workers, employees or employers, business associates, business clients or even strangers can be the victims of this behavior.
While anger is a natural and normal human emotion, it may sometimes get out of control and result in destructive interpersonal relationships, workplace issues such as hostile environments, legal issues, and a less than desirable quality of life.
Exhibiting anger may place you in harm's way and may create a serious disruption in normal relationships.
Instinctively, one's immediate reaction to our perception that we are being attacked sometimes is to respond angrily and aggressively. You cannot control what other people say, however, you may be able to control your responses to what they say. Nevada Anger Management's program strives to teach you in a simple and effective way methods to control your responses by giving you the tools, knowledge and understanding of your stress and anger, by enhancing your emotional intelligence and improving your communication skills.
Anger and the angry reaction is a learned behavior rather than a mental or nervous disorder. Anger is not a medical diagnosis. It is a learned behavior which produces inappropriate responses and individuals with anger issues need re-training so that their angry responses and aggressiveness are reduced and assertive skills, empathy and stress management skills are improved.
The skill techniques we teach are:
1) GAINING CONTROL – How to use the tools which may be necessary to change your behavior; 2) STRESS MANAGEMENT - How to become more aware of your stresses, how to accept them and how you may choose to cope with them; 3) EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE – How to relate more effectively to your own emotions, and the emotions of others so you may be able to improve your own self-management and the management of your interpersonal relationships with others; 4) COMMUNICATIONS – How you may become more assertive, less aggressive and how to
avoid miscommunication in your interpersonal relationships.
Our program is NOT THERAPY. We only teach skill enhancement techniques. We do not use or prescribe medications. Sometimes, in certain circumstances, it may be necessary for a client to be evaluated and treated by a health care professional or therapist and the appropriate referral will be made.
We only offer one-on-one educational programs which may be highly effective in attaining new levels of control over stress and anger related issues. Our programs are not therapy and are not intended to replace professional psychological or psychiatric counseling.
Nevada Anger Management provides the tools for reprogramming your ability to respond to stress, frustration, and helplessness and a plan for managing anger and stress patterns. Individual results from the curriculum may vary and require motivation and discipline on behalf of the participant.
We use a special and simple entrance examination (the Conover Anger Management Assessment) to assess your skill levels in
1) Interpersonal Assertion 2) Empathy 3) Stress Management 4) Interpersonal Aggression 5) Deference 6) Motivation to change your behavior
This same assessment is again used at the end of the program to measure your improvement to provide a baseline measurement up front and another measurement at the end for comparison purposes.
