Transforming Anger: Proven Strategies

Feb. 23, 2017; 1-2:30 p.m. (ET)

During deployments, service members may use anger as a normal and healthy coping skill in combat situations. But anger can sometimes negatively and uncontrollably carry over into relationships with family and friends after returning home.

This webinar will offer health care providers tools to recognize the dysfunctional cognitive processes that trigger anger behavior. Presenters will discuss proven strategies to transform the negative emotional, cognitive and physiological aspects of anger, into more constructive behaviors. The webinar will feature tips focused on maintaining physical health to reduce and ward off vulnerability to anger.

Presenters will also discuss behavioral and cognitive strategies that teach service members healthy communication and collaborative problem solving skills and helpful methods to calm someone during an episode of anger.

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will:

  • Analyze the impact of anger triggers on health and relationships
  • Examine the physical health vulnerabilities to anger
  • Identify cognitive and behavioral strategies to modify anger behavior
