At NCI, our goal is to help our clients recognize the negative effects of excessive anger and apply learned skills to respond in a manner that is both healthier and more socially appropriate.

Anger has been proven to have many negative impacts. It may hurt and alienate those who struggle to control it and fail to see the self destruction caused by the loss of control. Destructive anger is often amplified and affects not only the individual; it also affects their families and society at large. Individuals with poor Anger Management skills commonly suffer with the inability to control negative behaviors, manage physical and mental health, and maintain healthy relationships.

Our program aids individuals to identify any personal life experiences or stressors that have contributed to the development of triggers which provoke anger responses. Once these factors have been recognized, the client is empowered with the proper tools to gain control over their actions before escalation. The Anger Management class at NCI is designed to teach awareness, recognition and empathy to the individuals. This can prove to have a positive influence on their conflict resolution skills as well as overall health in relationships.
