Anger Management

The Dorchester Alcohol and Drug Commission

Anger Management Group is conducted by a Dorchester Counseling Services therapist in a psycho-educational format. The group utilizes cognitive-behavioral therapy and education to help clients identify cues to anger, explore and change beliefs leading to anger, healthy, non-aggressive ways of handling and controlling anger, and high-risk factors that may lead to anger.

The group involves role-modeling, group interaction processing, coaching and teaching new skills of assertive communication and techniques to prevent anger from escalating into physical aggression.

Our licensed, experienced clinicians will help you develop an individualized treatment plan including individual counseling if needed. The group meets for 12 weekly sessions, once time per week for an hour and a half. Please call for an assessment or for further information.

Dorchester Counseling Services accepts Medicaid, Medicare and some private insurance.

Some insurance companies cover this modality of group therapy. For those without insurance coverage, we offer payment plans based on a sliding fee scale. Please call to schedule an appointment. Daytime and evening appointments are available.
