Anger Management

Brave Health Group has a specific interest in the management of anger symptoms, in part, due to our interest in trauma and the frequency of those symptoms being present in trauma. Our clinicians who have experience with first responders and military understand the treatment approaches required to reduce those symptoms. Whilst discussion around anger is frequently avoided due to socially constructed norms, a study in 2021 has shown that in Australia, 2.3 million adults are angry each day. Anger is also increasing at twice the rate that sadness is reported across the world.

Because of our continued interest in Anger Management, Brave Health Group has created an independent business structure for anger research registered as Anger Management Australia (angermanagementaustralia.org.au) This area has a specific focus in continuing research for anger and developing anger programs which are innovative and drive sustainable change.

These innovative anger approaches include using an electroencephalogram (EEG) which is a test that detects electrical activity in your brain using small saline based pads that are safe, non intrusive and sit on the scalp. Your brain cells communicate via electrical impulses and are active all the time, even when you’re asleep. This activity shows up as wavy lines on an EEG recording and can track a range of emotionsWe utilise this technology with the approval of clients to show progress during treatment interventions and to measure overall improvements. We can measure a range of non-detectible emotions such Furrow (frown), Raise Brow (surprise), Smile, Clench Teeth (grimace), Laugh, Smirk Left/Right, Excitement, Long term excitement, Frustration, Engagement, Relaxation, Interest/Affinity an increased Focus. This enables clients to observe in a concrete way the benefits of anger interventions.

Because Brave Health Group has an interest in the management of anger, we also apply a range of other interventions including Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) specifically for anger. Cold water and ice immersion therapy is also a component of our treatment approach to reduce the challenges of anger.

We also have created a dedicated Anger Sponsor framework (based on the Alcoholics Anonymous AA model) where mentors provide specific support to clients with anger. These mentors/sponsors are trained by clinicians at Brave Health Group to support our clients when required. This is the known first in Australia where anger sponsors are trained and aligned to a similar framework to the AA model which assists clients being supported for their anger.
