Retraining your mind to deal with anger effectively

If you have found yourself serving time behind bars in Missouri for your involvement in a violent crime, chances are some pretty significant events in your life led up to that situation. At Frank, Juengel & Radefeld Attorneys at Law, we are committed to defending people who have been accused of committing a crime. 

If your violent behavior stemmed from your inability to control your temper when you feel angry, part of your recovery may require you to become involved in some type of therapy that educates you about how to deal with anger and other strong emotions in a way that is effective and healthy. Relearning behaviors such as that will require time, patience and commitment to change. 

According to the American Psychological Association, some of the triggers that may cause you to act out may include video games, music and other media content that has violent language or scenarios. Despite your unawareness, listening or watching this type of material may trigger you into reacting in a way that is dangerous and irrational. In addition to contributing to your unstable behavior, persistent anger can also affect your health and ability to make rational and effective decisions especially if you are under pressure. 

With the help of a professional, you can retrain your brain to respond to situations that may cause you anxiety and discomfort, in a way that allows you to protect yourself without lashing out and creating a disturbance. When you recognize what your triggers are, as well as under which conditions anger can be a positive emotion when leveraged the right way, you can rebuild your reputation and reduce your chances of reoffending.
