What are the signs that you need anger management?

I think my husband needs anger management but he does not.


Answer by  yourfriend (36)

If he finds that he gets angry over things that other people would not, that's a bad sign. If your husband can't smile anymore that's another indicator. If he's not getting enough sleep because he's fuming that is too. If he doesn't laugh at jokes. If he can't find a kind word to say.

Someone needs anger management when they are no longer able to control their actions when in a fit of rage or anger. When someone loses control over themselves and can become a danger to others, they need some type of therapy. People have various reasons for having anger problems, but anger management is designed to help with those exact issues.


Answer by  CarolynOsborne (2804)

If a person is destructive to other people (verbally or physically), animals, or to things (breaking them), that person probably needs anger management. Anger is an emotional reaction to feeling out of control. Often people who need anger management have unrealistic ideas of what they can control.


Answer by  patti (29325)

Most people who need anger management don't think they do. They feel their anger is justifiable (and usually someone else's fault) to them, and that if everyone would just behave/shut up/get off their backs, they would not be so angry. Sadly, until your husband takes it upon himself to seek help or is forced by the court, he probably won't.

Getting angry over little things other people would over look, rash decisions, almost constantly raised voice, are just a few signs of anger issues. Others are worse, such as violent out bursts that result in property damage, threats of harm or violence to others around them when they do not get their way, and sometimes carrying out those threats.

Some of the signs that you need help are when you start breaking things or hurting others when you are mad.

If his anger is getting out of hand, causing frequent problems with his loved ones or his job, or making his daily functioning (and the daily functioning of his loved ones) difficult it might be worth considering.
