Workshop Title: The Social Regulatory Theory of Anger and How it Can Change How You Practice

Presented By: Samantha Franklin, MA, LMFT & Stanley Thiele, MA, JD, LP, LMFT

Workshop Description: Anger is often a negatively labeled emotion in society, as well as scary and/or difficult to work with in therapy. Participants will learn a concrete framework to better understand anger and how to teach this to their clients, as well as interventions for how to keep clients in treatment. Participants will also learn anger coping skills to de-escalate anger in the moment, and long-term strategies for clients to be able to decrease the intensity and frequency of their anger over-time so recurrent issues related to their anger improve.

Workshop Objectives: Review the purpose of anger and establish a shared definition. Explain concept of stored anger, its consequences and contribution to anger issues. Teach short-term de-escalation coping skills and long-term interventions for decreasing stored anger. Identify common mistakes by helpers. Improve treatment engagement. Describe how to transfer anger management skills to individuals with high levels of anger.

Anger issues and its negative consequences is a systemic issue as anger problems impact relationships, society, and the legal system. Working with clients on anger management also includes considering the system they grew up in and the system they are a part of currently, as the system can be a barrier and/or support in their improvements with anger.
