Anger Management


Youth Anger Management

Walk-ins and court ordered are welcomed here at S.O.B.E.R. International in a classroom group setting with youth participants from all walks of life.   We believe that by talking to them and not at them or down at them allows our communication to be more successful while working with our youth.

What is Anger?

Anger is a natural, though sometimes unwanted or irrational, emotion that everybody experiences from time to time.  

Anger experts describe the emotion as a primary,  natural emotion which has evolved as a way of surviving and protecting  yourself from what is considered a wrong-doing. 

  1. Mild  anger may be brought on by feeling tired, stressed or irritated, in  fact we are more likely to feel irritated if our basic human needs  (food, shelter, sex, sleep, etc.) are not met or are jeopardized in some  way. 
  2. We may become angry when reacting to  frustration, criticism or a threat and this is not necessarily a bad or  inappropriate reaction. 
  3. We can also feel irritated by other people’s  beliefs, opinions and actions and hence anger can affect our ability to  communicate effectively - making us more likely to say or do  unreasonable or irrational things.  
  4. Being unreasonable or irrational can lead  others around us to feel threatened, resentful or angry themselves and,  again, these can all be barriers to effective communication
