Anger Management

Anger is not sin!  Like every other emotion, it is created by God for our good and is therefore a normal aspect of being human.  Unfortunately, this gift has been corrupted and creates all sorts of problems for us.
If you are having difficulty controlling your anger, know that many before you have conquered this monster, and you can too.  I know ungodly anger from my own experience and have learned to manage it.  I have helped many others learn how to manage their anger as well.  Give me a call for a free consultation, and I’ll assess your problem and offer options for treatment.

Spirituality
"It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery." (Gal 5:1)

 

We live by the Spirit, not the flesh.  The fruit of doing so is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Gal 5:22-25).  If you are willing to surrender to Jesus and believe that He can deliver you from angry outbursts, we are confident that we can help you overcome this problem.

Anger Management Using the STOP Method

DeVine Interventions Group uses Dr. W. Robert Nay’s, The Anger Management Workbook to teach people how to manage their anger.  Each student is expected to complete the assignments in the book prior to class.  This way we will be able to discuss what each has learned and work on effective applications.  So, the class will answer questions that students might have from their homework assignment, but will primarily work through the implementation of strategies for change.
Dr. Nay uses the STOP method, stands for Stop, Think, Objectify and Plan.  This method is helpful for the Christian, and can be reframed in the following manner:
  • STOP: Identify that you are angry and Stop!
  • THINK:  Identify irrational thoughts that drive your anger and the false beliefs that underlie those thoughts.
  • OBJECTIFY:  Label your unhealthy thoughts and beliefs as lies of the devil.  Replace the irrational beliefs with biblical beliefs.  Memorize Scriptures that you can utilize in the moment of anger arousal.
  • PRAY:  Learn about effective communication skills, list your irrational beliefs, list your Scripture verses, learn communication pitfalls, learn negotiation skills, etc. and put it all into a plan.  Pray over your plan 2x/day, at least once with a prayer partner.

Course Details

Anger Management treatment begins
and meets weekly for 12 weeks from 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
Certificates of Completion are not guaranteed; but easily obtained by attending all classes and completing the entire workbook.  Anger Management classes begin with an individual intake of 1.5 hours, which should be completed by the first week.  Prior to the intake, each participant learns about treatment at DeVine Interventions Group, and signifies that they have read and understood policies with a signature.  The participant completes a prescreen form.  During the intake, the therapist evaluates the participant for mental health concerns and assesses strengths and needs.  The participant completes a treatment plan during her/his intake.  At this point, it may be determined that the client needs additional treatment or a higher level of care.  
Classes are an hour long with no more than 7 classmates.  Each participant should have purchased a workbook prior to beginning classes and have completed the assignment prior to each class.  By the 11th week, each participant will arrange an hour long individual therapy session to develop a recovery plan.  Once this is completed and the participant completes the last assignment and attends the 12th class, a certificate of completion is issued to the participant.
Any missed classes can be replaced with an individual session at the participant's expense.  The participant must complete all assignments and all 12 classes.  If a participant has a learning disorder or other special needs, this must be discussed prior to treatment so that arrangements (if possible) can be made.
