A new relationship—whether personal, romantic, or professional—is a lot like buying a new car. Driving it off the lot is pure bliss. As you look around, you can scarcely take it all in. Everything smells, sounds, and looks terrific. You coast through weeks or months—maybe even years— of happy driving before you’re aware of anything that needs fixing. And like a car, when a relationship breaks down, it’s overwhelming; you’re left stuck on the side of the road wondering what went wrong.
A trained eye knows when a car is in trouble. From the sound of the idle to the color of the exhaust exiting the tailpipe, there are telltale signs of distress. The same is true of relationships, and you can be your own mechanic. Researchers at the University of Washington discovered four clear indicators of relationship failure (dubbed “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”) so profound that they predict the future success of a relationship with 93% accuracy. The researchers in Washington conducted their studies with married couples, and their accuracy rate for predicting divorce has held up for more than 14 years after watching couples interact. Please call Georgia Anger Management at 678-662-7066 to schedule an appointment for an assessment and evaluation of your relationship. learn more about “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” Sessions also include, among others:

What is Anger Management?
Anger management is the process of learning to recognize signs that you're becoming angry, and taking action to calm down and deal with the situation in a positive way. Anger management doesn't try to keep you from feeling anger or encourage you to hold it in. Anger is a normal, healthy emotion when you know how to express it appropriately — anger management is about learning how to do this.
You may learn anger management skills on your own, using books or other resources. But for many people, taking an anger management class or seeing a mental health professional is the most effective approach.
Why it's done
Anger management helps you recognize frustrations early and resolve them in a way that allows you to express your needs — and keeps you calm and in control.
Some signs that you need help controlling your anger include:
How you prepare
A number of books and websites offer information about ways to manage anger. But, if learning skills on your own isn't enough to help you stay calm and in control, you may benefit from seeing a mental health professional or by taking an anger management class.
It can take a little work to find an anger management program, a counselor specializing in anger management or other resources. Here are some places to start your search:
Beginning anger management
When you start working on anger management, identify your triggers and the physical and emotional signs that occur as you begin to get angry. Pay attention to and make a list of:
What you can expect
Anger management classes or counseling for anger management can be done in a group or one-on-one with your partner, child or someone else. The setting, length and number of sessions vary, depending on the program or counselor and your needs. Anger management courses or counseling can be brief or last for weeks or months.
Generally, counseling for anger management focuses on learning specific skills and ways of thinking so you can cope with anger. If you have any other mental health conditions, such as depression or addiction, you may need to work on these other issues for anger management methods to be effective.
The aim of counseling and anger management classes is to teach you to:
Improving your ability to manage anger has several benefits. You'll feel as if you have more control when life's challenges turn up the heat. Knowing how to express yourself assertively means you won't feel the frustration of holding in your anger to avoid offending someone.

If you’re struggling with out-of-control anger, you may be wondering why your fuse is so short. Anger problems often stem from what you’ve learned as a child. If you watched others in your family scream, hit each other, or throw things, you might think this is how anger is supposed to be expressed. Traumatic events and high levels of stress can make you more susceptible to anger as well.
Anger is often a cover-up for other feelings
In order to get your needs met and express your anger in appropriate ways, you need to be in touch with what you are really feeling. Are you truly angry? Or is your anger masking other feelings such as embarrassment, insecurity, hurt, shame, or vulnerability?
If your knee-jerk response in many situations is anger, it is very likely that your temper is covering up your true feelings and needs. This is especially likely if you grew up in a family where expressing feelings was strongly discouraged. As an adult, you may have a hard time acknowledging feelings other than anger.
Clues that there’s something more to your anger
If you are uncomfortable with many emotions, disconnected, or stuck on an angry one-note response to everything, it might do you some good to get back in touch with your feelings. Emotional awareness is the key to self-understanding and success in life. Without the ability to recognize, manage, and deal with the full range of human emotions, you’ll inevitably spin into confusion, isolation, and self-doubt.

Keeping Your Cool: How To Manage Anger During Competition
As natural competitors, many athletes find it impossible to play their sport without experiencing intense emotion. Consequently, bad calls, dirty plays and poor performance can trigger feelings of anger. But when you allow yourself to get angry on the court or field, your performance will drop, because you will:
If you struggle with anger during competition, try one of these coping skills recommended by sport psychologists. You’ll not only have a much better experience on the field, you’ll actually learn to use your emotions to your advantage.
Immediately after a game, write down situations that caused anger throughout. Include thoughts, emotions, reactions, consequences of your choices and a coach’s evaluation of your behavior. Also, use the hassle log to identify what you could have done differently. For example, if you got angry because you were beat to a ball and ended up committing a foul because of it, you may want to concentrate on running back on defense faster next time. By becoming more aware of your actions and emotions during a game, you’ll be able to plan better for the future.
Pick a word or phrase to focus on when you feel yourself getting angry. For example, a soccer player might say, "First to the ball," to concentrate on gaining possession of the ball instead of running after an offending opponent. Use cue words in practice so they become second nature in competition. By learning to focus on your next action rather than mistakes, you’ll eliminate many of the dangerous effects of anger.
Develop positive self-statements to let go of anger and mistakes. Examples include, "I am a smart player," "I've got a good attitude," "I am calm, cool, and collected" or "I let go of mistakes and focus on the next play."
At practice or at home, rehearse appropriate responses to anger-provoking situations with a parent, teammate or coach. Although it may feel silly, research shows that role playing through positive responses can be an effective way to program the right response for competition.
Use imagery to visualize yourself in situations that make you angry; then watch yourself successfully handle them. Be sure to visualize feeling relaxed and in control. Visualization is a great technique to try right before a game to get your mind in the right place.
Every time you start feeling angry, take three deep breaths to allow your emotions to simmer down. For a powerful combination, use this physical technique at the same time as you try one of the mental tricks outlined above.
