It is well known that anger outbursts and other behaviours that are associated with anger are often the result of trauma. However, because society has little patience for such anger related behaviours there is a pressing need, placed on caregivers to redirect and manage the anger to reduce its threat to others and the community. Frequently this intense focus on stopping the anger immediately results in a narrow and limited understanding of the anger’s catalyst (Tull, M., 2020). Participants will learn the utility of assessments that can identify anger as a stand-alone issue or as symptom of trauma. The treatment and support for both types of anger will be explored using videos and case studies while applying the modalities of CBT and ACT. Participants will help construct a case study where anger is the by-product of a trauma and where anger is a stand-alone issue. Participants will be able to explain how the assessment measures and process helps to identify the underlying trauma, while taking a trauma informed approach to provide anger management support.
