Anger Management

Please contact us at (215) 885-8045 for more details and to book.

Anger Management is not about removing one's anger; Anger Management is about learning to recognize and control our responses to life's anger causing stressors. Anger Management is recognizing that we do not need to "take it personally," and learning how to change the way we perceive the world around us.

Key indicators for the need for Anger Management include increases in anger frequency, duration and intensity.

Anger MANagement

Because You Are Better Than That

Learn how to control your anger from someone who had to learn to control his. My anger was ruining my relationships with family, friends, employers, and significant others. It controlled me and caused me do things I may not have otherwise chose to have done. The angrier I got, the more I got angry, and the more out of control I became. We will work together to address old patterns of behavior and take a different approach to the world. This book will make you more powerful, not less. The knowledge gained in through this book will not make you less of a man, but more of a man. You will gain the power of knowledge, gain back self-respect, and create a different legacy for yourself, your children, and significant others. I have lived this possibility.

Anger Management Book, Anger MANagement- Because You Are Better Than That, By Dr. John Seader

Kiss your Wife Goodnight- if you don't someone else just might

Through observations and personal experience, it seemed to me that men have simply lost their way on the path to learning how to be a man and how to romance a woman. This, however, isn’t man’s fault per se; we have had poor role models in this area mostly because our role models were lost also and as is often the case, when a man gets lost, he won't ask for directions. When we as a species do not know what to do, we will generally do nothing at all – the proverbial deer in the headlights mentality. For too long now men have been these deer locked in the relationship headlights. I humorously review how men became so inept at developing our relationships and then introduce some of the things that men can do to improve themselves and their relationships.

Kiss Your Wife Goodnight by Dr. John Seader

A Note from Dr. Seader

We all experience some level of anger at some point in our lives. However, when the intensity, duration, and/or frequency of our behaviors associated with anger exceed social or legal acceptance, anger management may be needed.
 

A certain amount of anger is necessary for our survival; anger is a primitive defensive reaction to feeling vulnerable or to being under attack. Anger management is learning how to manage and control our feelings and the physiological arousal that often accompanies an anger event. I can assist you in achieving control.

 

I am dedicated to helping people whose current ways of expressing anger is resulting in life problems. My goal is to help people master skills for happier, peaceful, successful living.

 

However, I can only help those who want to change.

I will be honest and tell you now if you are looking to appease someone else (wife, husband, etc.) or if you just want to receive a court mandated certification, I am probably not the specialist for you.

 

If you are truly serious about changing your life for the better, call us to set up an appointment: (215) 885-8045.
