When choosing a program it is important to make sure the facilitator or program is certified. Anger Management is a skills based program and it is neither counseling nor psychotherapy. It is important for participants to understand that anger is an emotion and rage or aggression is a learned behavior rather than a mental or nervous disorder. Anger is not a medical diagnosis and anger management is not psychotherapy; therefore, it is not covered by health insurance. Many studies show that psychotherapy alone does not help improve Anger Management. Long Island Anger Management, Inc. can help, we teach practical strengths based skills that really work.
