Anger management helps you recognize frustrations early and resolve them in a way that allows you to express your needs — and keeps you calm and in control.

Some signs you need help controlling your anger include:

  • Often feeling that you have to hold in your anger
  • Frequent arguments with your partner, children or co-workers that escalate frustrations
  • Trouble with the law
  • Physical violence, such as hitting your partner or children or starting fights
  • Threats of violence against people or property
  • Out-of-control behavior, such as breaking things or driving recklessly
