Anger and aggression is helpful for your teen to deal with overwhelming emotions, although in an unhealthy way. This can take a toll in multiple aspects of your teen’s life (i.e. family, friendships, and school) and make it difficult to know where to turn. Do you see these signs in your teen?
Experiencing anger that escalates quickly and easily
Holding on to anger for a long time, even after the event has passed
Lashing out at others or destroying property
Experiencing physical symptoms in response to anger, including tense muscles, a rapid heart rate, and warmth in the face
Often utilizing cursing/swearing
If you’re seeing this behavior in your teen, Sarah can help! Sarah specializes in working with teens, (and their parents) struggling with depression, anxiety, and anger/aggression. She helps teens find their voice and understand how to identify their own emotions.
