Is your Wife Complaining about your Temper?


If you are losing your temper too frequently or a court has ordered you to get counseling for anger problems, you need anger management and psychological counseling. There are many things which you should consider when looking for a psychologist or counselor to help you alleviate your frustration and help you control your temper.

There are a variety of therapists out there who provide psychological and anger management counseling. Your job is to find the best and most straight-forward among them.

First thing you have to do is to spend some time researching psychologists and anger management programs in your area. The right psychologist can help you greatly by reducing your frustration, isolating the triggers to your anger and, even in providing practical little-known ways to nip your anger in the bud before you actually lose your temper.

An anger management or domestic violence counselor will have special credentials in family therapy, behavioral medicine, as well as in psychology and counseling. I would recommend you find a professional who is certified by the International Academy of Behavioral Medicine, Counseling and Psychotherapy (IABMCP).

Almost every expert psychologist has a website. It is a good idea to go through the website and get to know about the psychologists professional experience with court-ordered and anger management counseling.

Go through the articles and information on the website to determine if he has the necessary expertise in treating the stress, pressure and rage of anger-prone patients. Anger and rage problems are some of the worst and most painful issues for families to endure.

They can literally change peoples lives by causing divorce, estrangement, loss of kids, loss of jobs and even serious criminal problems. The main causes of rage and domestic violence include the lack of flexibility, the compelling need to control, rigidity, adrenaline-induced agitation and responding to obstacles with compelling feelings of frustration and impatience.

Explosive loss of temper not only is exhausting but it embeds fear and nervousness into your wife and kids that can last a lifetime. It can also cause depression, hopelessness, a malignant inability to get along with others and a total loss of stable relationships.

Unfortunately, rage and explosiveness sometimes do not respond well to conventional, open-ended counseling.
Doing it on your own does not help much either and, since the answers can seem so elusive, your marriage and relationships with others may begin to look very dim indeed.

The constant family crises and endless arguing sometimes causes irreversible alienation and tension in personal and family relationships. Also, if you get too frustrated, you may resort to alcohol or drug abuse to numb the pain. This can cause another major cascade of problems in your relationships with your spouse and kids.

It is very important to get psychological help in a timely manner. Also, it is important to identify and get information about the triggers, signs and symptoms of explosive, angry and erratic behavior.

Common consequences of explosiveness and anger-related problems include depression, feelings of futility and hopelessness, rage at the unfairness involved and frustration with those who do not understand the reasons for your anger. If you experience any of the above be sure to consult a psychologist who practices anger management counseling and behavioral medicine therapy.

The three main issues confronting those with anger management problems are:

1. In all fairness, will others work on changing to make it easier for me to change?

2. Will my marriage be able to survive? And,

3. How can I get control of myself and at the same time, not appear like a wimp?

Spend some time in finding more information on frustration, anger management and depression. Also, be sure you have enough information about every aspect of anger and how it may be affecting your wife and kids.

Find informative websites or blogs which are devoted to anger management. You can also explore article directories or online magazines which offer free articles on anger, family and other psychologically- related topics.
