Anger Management therapy shows one how to develop empathy which will help reduce anger and make the person see things from the same perspective of others. One needs to learn how to respond instead of reacting and be able to communicate needs, requests and feeling instead of having uncontrolled anger outbursts.

Therapy helps you to recognize and modify your own inner conversations and teaches you how to change that negative self talk into positive self talk. One of the anger management skills is to be able to effectively communicate how one feels and how to respond to matters without becoming angry or aggressive.
