What is anger management?

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

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

The model is part of the government’s action plan for violence in close relationships and has been developed at the Broset Competence Centre at St. Olav’s Hospital.

Therapists who use this method often work in mental health, at Family counselling offices or in the Child Welfare Service. There are a total of 400 anger management therapists on a national basis (2016). The staff have a duty of confidentiality and are therefore not allowed to share any information about you with others without your consent, or if there is a risk to life and health. An interpreter can be offered, when necessary.

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