Stress, Pain, Anger Management
Stress, pain and anger management refers to the process by which a person learns how to identify stressors, take necessary steps to remain calm and handle tense situations in a constructive and positive manner. The aim is to decrease the heightened emotional and physiological arousal often associated with stress, pain or anger. It is generally impossible to avoid all the people, things and settings that incite these negative feelings, but a person may learn how to control his/her reactions and respond in a socially appropriate manner.
A psychologist may be helpful in this process of exploring the roots of the personal issue. With professional support the patient can develop techniques to help manage his reaction to stressors such as impulse control, self-awareness, meditation and breathing techniques.
