Anger management can help individuals with anger issues learn to gain insight into why they react or overreact to certain triggers. With continued therapy and practice of strategies at home and at work, the individual can learn to control anger by putting triggers, such as spilled milk or a broken dish, into perspective.
Talking about these types of episodes allows the individual to see how anger has taken a front seat in how he or she conducts life. Once this happens, there will still be more work to do, and it will need to be done with conscious effort. There may or may not come a day when it will be easy, but at least having an awareness allows the individual to think before acting, and that can mean improved relationships and general well-being.
