Anger Management and Trauma Support Methods in Edmonton

At Resolutions Centre for Counselling, Assessment and Psychological Services in Edmonton, we can provide you with the tools you need for anger management and trauma support.


Trauma can leave many people feeling angry, with no healthy outlet for that rage. Anger helps us cope with stress by giving us energy to continue on even in the face of danger or trauma. It is also a common response to scenarios where we feel like we have been made into a victim. However, anger can also cause problems.


People with anger issues can become “stuck” in their response, leading to responding to all stress in survival mode. You may find yourself reacting as if your life is threatened all the time. That can create friction in the workplace and with your family.

Treatment and Support

Anger management treatment has a variety of avenues to address different problems. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is commonly used to manage the three problem areas:

  • Arousal – certain reactions in the body, calling your systems into action and causing your muscles to become tense.

  • Behaviour – acting aggressively to defend yourself. Many trauma survivors never learn any other way to handle threats and become stuck in their aggressive ways of reacting.

  • Thoughts/belief – thinking or feeling that you are surrounded by threats, even when that’s not true. You may not even be fully aware of these thoughts or beliefs.


For assistance in managing your anger and trauma, please give us a call. We want to give you the support you deserve.
