This blog seeks to answer all these questions by offering the latest scientific information on anger, anger management tools, and emotion research.
John Schinnerer, Ph.D. is an anger management expert trained at U.C. Berkeley. Let’s look at what John has to say about anger…
There are many theories and thousands of studies that look to explain why individuals are overweight, have low self-esteem, suffer from migraines, are addicted to drugs and alcohol, are depressed, develop sexual performance problems, are at higher risk for heart attacks and heart break, abuse their loved ones, and become suicidal. One finding that consistently emerges from these varied outcomes is that people who suffer from these troubling patterns have anger management problems. They have a hard time dealing with their own anger. While anger is not the only cause of these issues, it is a constant theme in all of them, indicating that anger plays an important role in their development.
The Goal of Anger Management Programs
One of the goals of anger management programs is to help you connect rational thought with appropriate action in the angry heat of the moment.
The best way to learn is by doing. Each and every time you take action, you take a step towards rewriting old negative patterns and habits. The brain is capable of creating new brain cells and pathways throughout your life. So age is irrelevant. You can learn anger management techniques at any age.
The Brain Can Learn Anger Management Quickly At Any Age
What’s more, your brain changes rapidly, in many cases in a matter of minutes or hours. However, some of your patterns of behavior and reactions have existed for many years. These anger patterns will take roughly 3.5 months to learn to undo and replace with more constructive ways of responding to situations. One theory is that this is due to cellular memory. Your body recreates 1% of the cells in your body daily. After 100 days, 100% of your body is completely renewed. It may be that you can’t teach an old cell new tricks! Be patient. Stick with the anger management process. You will see results.
Training the Angry Mind
To train the angry mind, you need repetition. So at the end of each anger management video in the complete series (available at my Online Anger Management Class), you will be asked to take action steps to insure you learn to manage your anger effectively.
Another important tip is that learning anger management is an ongoing process. This means that you will gradually improve your anger management skills as you practice the anger reduction exercises. By watching the videos repeatedly and taking part in the action steps, your old angry thoughts, feelings and behaviors are less and less likely to return.
Developing excellent anger management skills is like exercising. Your anger management skills are similar to muscles which grow stronger with daily use. Stop the exercise and the muscles atrophy and weaken. Continue to exercise and the muscles get stronger and more responsive!
