Anger Management


Do you have a short fuse or find yourself getting into frequent arguments and fights? Anger is a normal, healthy emotion, but when chronic, explosive anger spirals out of control, it can have serious consequences for your relationships, your health and your state of mind.  With insight about the real reasons for your anger and applicable anger management tools you can learn to keep
your temper from hijacking your life.


At SouthWest Nu-Stop Recovery and Educational Center (SWNSREC), we help you understand the emotion of anger and the fact that it is neither good nor bad.  It is healthy and normal to feel angry when you’ve been mistreated or wronged.  The feeling isn't the problem—it's what you do with it that makes a difference.  Anger becomes a problem when it harms you or others.


If you have a hot temper, you may feel like it’s out of your hands and there’s little you can do to tame the beast.

But you have more control over your anger than you think. You can learn to express your emotions without hurting others—and when you do, you’ll not only feel better, you’ll also be more likely to get your needs met.  SWNSREC Anger Management Degree Program (AMDP) is designed to assist in mastering the art of anger management.  It takes work, but the more practice, the easier it will get.  Learning to control anger and express it appropriately can help you build better relationships, achieve goals, and lead a healthier, more satisfying Nu-life!


Our AMDP is approved by The Philadelphia County Probation Department.  It consists of 8 sessions, once a week. 

The AMDP is conducted by Certified Anger Management Specialists, focused on developing skills and techniques to help individuals struggling with anger challenges.



The SWNS AMDP curriculum consists of:

  •  Anger Log

  • Shame Breaking Statements

  • Healthy and Unhealthy Shame

  • The Primitive Brain and Anger

  • The Evolving Brain and Anger

  • Anger Different From Aggression

  • Anger a Two Part Process

  • Significant Problems Dealing with Anger

  • ABC Cognitive Therapy



Each session requires a great deal of compliance, assignments, exercises, homework and self-monitoring, whereby motivation is the key.  Upon completion of the eight week series clients will be awarded a certificate of achievement.  The best predictor of a positive outcome is the willingness to honestly examine and admit the consequences of your anger problem.
