Like many people, you probably spent a lot of time around your family, especially when you were little, so naturally you have learned some behaviours from them. Being aware of how members of your family interact can help you understand your own reactions to anger. One of the most rewarding things as a counsellor is to help my clients explore the habits and behaviours they picked up from their family members. I help clients identify patterns and links in how their relatives handle anger and what clients learned from them. I also encourage clients to think about family members who manage anger well and what clients can do to try to be more like that person.
