... anger management classes, one-on-one psychotherapy sessions, and group therapy ... (life coach, counselor, psychotherapist, clinical psychologist, psychiatrist, quezon city, manila, philippines)

gma's state of the nation, hosted by jessica soho, sent sherrie ann torres and ariel dano to interview me on anger management.

people with anger problems are best helped by attending

- anger management classes, 

- one-on-one psychotherapy sessions, 

- psychiatric consultations, and

- group therapy sessions.  

anger management classes usually focus on teaching general strategies on how to deal with angry feelings and how to prevent aggressive or violent outbursts.  

individual psychotherapy sessions focus on the root causes of anger and how to resolve them.

psychiatric consultations are especially useful when there is a psychiatric condition underlying the angry or aggressive behaviors, such as adhd, alcohol or substance dependence, major depression, etc.  

group therapy sessions make the angry person more aware about the interpersonal triggers of the anger, and teach the angry person to be more sensitive about the feelings of others.
