What is the Brøset anger management program?

Do you have problems controlling your anger? Does this affect your partner and family? Then you may be a candidate for help from therapists who work with anger management.

The service is national and aimed at perpetrators of violence over 18 years of age. The program mainly employs group treatment, although it can also be used individually. You can learn techniques to control your aggressive behaviour and work on changing your attitudes.

Watch a film about contact with the Brøset anger management program:


The Brøset anger management program (SBM) was developed at the Brøset Centre of Expertise in forensic, security, and prison psychiatry at St. Olav’s Hospital. There are a total of 450 anger management therapists nationally (2018).

Therapists using this method often work in mental health, at family welfare offices or in the Child Welfare Service. The staff have a duty of confidentiality, which means that they can only disclose your personal information to third parties with your consent, or if there is an immediate risk of someone being harmed. An interpreter can be provided when necessary.

You can contact your GP or family welfare office for more information about the service.
