Brain Physiology and Anger Aggression Response

A video on the relation between anger, the amygdala and the prefrontal cortex. It highlights how our regulatory systems in the prefrontal cortex may, or may not, inhibit anger.

Road Rage – When Driving List

Road Rage – When Driving List

ROAD RAGE IS…

Road Rage is often called intermittent explosive disorder, a term used to refer to violent incidents resulting from stress caused by accidents or incidents on roadways. It is often a natural extension of aggressive driving.

Road Rage frustration and aggression are often triggered by traffic conditions, being in a hurry, stress related to other pressures. Road Rage is a feeling of retaliating of awlfulizing the other driver. The other driver deserves retribution. We make a free choice in what we do. We choose how we are going to respond.

∇ Are you experiencing aggressive driving in your attitude when behind the wheel?

∇ Find yourself driving erratically?

∇ Getting ‘worked up” driving?

∇ Find yourself saying not nice things called Expletives?

∇ Driving definitely causing you a lot of stress?

Road Rage:

  • Occurs when a driver reacts angrily to other drivers
  • You cut off another driver
  • Tailgating
  • Gesturing or waving fist.
  • Flip off someone
  • Aggressive driving
  • Excessive speeds
  • Scream at another
  • Chase another car
  • Honk continuously at another car
  • Make threatening gestures
  • Try to injure or kill another driver
  • Name what you do: _______________

Road Rage is an symptom of an underlying issue with a driver. Impulse Control is a major issue. They are unable to remain in control of themselves or their emotions. Often stress is very high in your life. Perhaps your personal or business life is not going very well. Your anger spreads beyond driving creeping into other aspects of your life.

Choose to Calm Down and disengage from your stress.

 

For drivers who do not experience Road Rage knowing what might trigger a person is equally important.

 

Do not “flip off” someone with your middle finger. They may have a pistol in hand waiting for an excuse. Some people may just not like your look. Your race. Your hair color.

 

Atlanta has now become an aggressive driving city with too many cars and not enough roads.

 

Vote for more MARTA, High Speed Trains, Other Public Transportation ideas when they come up in Voting. Use MARTA when you can.

 

WHEN DRIVING:

  • Be calm
  • Listen to soothing music
  • Slow down
  • Take more time to get to your destination and expect delays
  • Plan your driving trip before you drive so you know where you are going. Use Google maps.
  • Plan to arrive 20 minutes early so if traffic bad you are not stressed
  • Become a better driver
  • If you have anxiety while driving take a driver education course in defensive driving
  • Be courteous while driving
  • Make appointments in non traffic times
  • Stop multi-tasking while driving
  • Stop talking on phone while driving
  • Stop looking at your phone while driving
  • Practice holding the steering wheel with two hands so your other hand does not auto multi-task
  • Allow a car beside you to get ahead of you when lane narrows
  • When a driver cuts in front of you abruptly, let it go and expect that again
  • Drive with 360 degree awareness paying attention to all sides, front, back, left, right (Zen Driving)
  • Anticipate traffic incidents with attentive awareness “reading” the traffic ahead of you
  • Practice Positive Self Talk and say things like “Calm Down” “I feel Calm” “No big deal”
  • Do not use expletives like idiot, stupid, asshole, *uck you, *ucker, Mother*ucker
  • Do not use expletives like _____________ _______________ _____________
  • Arrive safely to live another day

 

Remain Calm and Carry On. Repeat this to yourself.

DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office Honored for Anti-Recidivism Program

DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office Honored for Anti-Recidivism Program

June 12, 2014

[Decatur, GA]
The DeKalb County Board of Commissioners recently honored the DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office for creating a program dedicated to giving offenders ages 17 -25 a second chance. The Anti-Recidivism Court was created by District Attorney Robert James in December 2011. Since the program’s inception, 22 participants have successfully completed the program.

“This unique program offers young, first-time, non-violent offenders a second chance at life,” said James. “This program does not give them a ‘get out of jail free’ pass for their mistakes, but it allows them to learn from their prior missteps through a rigorous year-long program.”

The Anti-Recidivism Court is a collaborative partnership among DeKalb County Public Defenders’ Office, DeKalb County Magistrate Court and DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office.

According to national statistics, approximately two-thirds of individuals arrested will be re-arrested within three years. “The judicial system can become a revolving door for criminals. We wanted to deliberately interrupt the cycle of recidivism here in DeKalb through this program.”

Currently, 20 participants are enrolled in the year-long Anti-Recidivism Court.

As conditions of the diversion program, each participant is ordered to: report to private probation, perform community service, undergo random monitoring, report to monthly compliance hearings and abide by a curfew/electronic monitoring. Additionally, participants must pay any restitution involved with their arrest, enroll in an academic program if they have not obtained a high school diploma/GED and attend behavior modification classes.

“We focus on developing the person and providing them with the skills needed to be successful in life,” said James. “We not only provide them with life skills training but also a strict guideline to follow. Many do not complete the course .

For those participants who do complete all of their requirements, they will have their cases dismissed.”

If a participant is found in violation of the diversion program terms, then their case would be sent back to Superior Court for prosecution. “The program is not a fit for ever applicant,” said Diversion Program Director Kaleema Thomas. “The participants have to be committed to change and willing to work on themselves throughout the process.”

Atlanta Anger Management offers two such Lifeskills Courses.

  1. Anger Management Class
  2. Character Development Class

 

1. Anger Management Class

Anger Management is a course of treatment that seeks to help people whose anger emotion is causing negative problems in their personal, business or public life.

Anderson & Anderson’s Certified Anger Management Facilitators are influencing how anger management is practiced throughout the United States. Richard Taylor of Atlanta Anger Management sets the standard in Atlanta with many others following our lead. We offer what is needed and other companies soon copy us and offer it too. Two companies have even copied our name or derivatives thereof. Such flattery, thank you.

Anger Management has moved from the basic idea of management of anger to a broader understanding of the relationship between:

  • anger self-awareness
  • anger management
  • stress self-awareness
  • stress management
  • improving communication
  • increasing self-awareness
  • mindfulness
  • social awareness
  • impulse control
  • optimism
  • decision making
  • self-perception
  • flexibility
  • and relationship management

These lifeskills learned are positive by design and move the participant from low motivation into high motivation to commit to the process if they only honor their Pre-Trial Diversion Program requirements by completing the number of hours required.

♦ Unfortunately many get their Letter Of Enrollment attending their first class to (get off the hook) for their first Probation Meeting and then disappear into their past patterns that only lead to more trouble and eventual arrest ~ jail time for violation of their Agreed On Terms Of Pre-Trial Diversion Program.  Stricter penalties needed to be served for violation in our estimation.

Participants completing the Anger Management Class (Course) leave with enhanced life skills for greater self understanding (awareness), learn to control one’s emotions, better social awareness for better interactions and more productive relationship management.

In most cases reduced recidivism is also achieved.

NOTE: Anger Management is not psychotherapy. Anger Management is psycho-education and a highly personalized form of treatment using educational approach to skill development. Specialized Anger Management Certification Training of 40 Hours or more by national certification companies should be the standard for practice.

Anger Management does not seek to help those in need of counseling to find ways of avoiding their anger altogether. According to the American Psychiatric Association, anger is a normal human emotion. It is not a mental disorder, consequently it is not responsive to traditional counseling, psychotherapy or psychotropic medication. Additionally anger is not listed in The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) DSM-IV-TR.

Anger is exemplified by anger outbursts or tempers that flair out of proportion to the causing stimuli or situation. Anger can be aggressive as in verbal abuse or physical abuse but also passive as in emotional blackmail, negative control issues, silent treatment etc. The individual experiencing anger often lashes out against family members, friends, acquaintances coworkers, even strangers.

Anger is a problem under the following circumstances:

When it occurs too frequently
• When it is too intense 
• When it lasts too long
• When it leads to health issues
• When it destroys interpersonal relationships: personal, work and public 
• When it results in person-directed aggression: verbal abuse or physical abuse

Anger can be managed using skills/tools that can be learned through a course of proven Anger Management curriculum.

Atlanta Anger Management is offered in:

Minimally these classes are designed to teach core life skills in the following domains:

• Self Observing Self
• Anger Awareness and Anger Management
• Stress Awareness and Stress Management
• Improved Communication through Assertion Training & Active Listening
• Emotional Intelligence:
self-awareness, self control, social awareness and relationship management
• Relationship Management
• Cognitive Restructuring
• Learning to Respond To Another Person’s Anger
• Optimism and Gratitude

 

The first step is to call Richard at 678-576-1913 and we get to know one another. It is usually fairly brief but provides you the opportunity to discuss current situation and what some of the issues are and define your requirements as dictated by your referring party.

  • speed causes nearly 1/3 of all fatal motor vehicle crashes
  • speeding reduces the time drivers have to avoid a crash or a dangerous situation and greatly increases the likelihood the crash will be severe.
  • The energy released in a collision at 60 mph is 200 percent greater than at 40 mph, even though the speed has increased by only 50 percent.

Control Yourself

  • Wind down before you crank it up
  • Avoid making other drivers angry by avoiding anger yourself
  • Anticipate situations and make plans accordingly.
  • Regular traffic reports in most cities alert you to the traffic congestion.
  • Allow extra driving time to remain stress free.
  • Learn alternate routes.
  • Find ways to relive daily stress such as Working Out (Exercise), Pilates, Meditation, Laughter Yoga, Conscious Breathing, Singing, taking Hot Baths at night.
  • If you plan a long road trip, take it in 8 to 10 hour stages.
  • Every three hours driving take a rest stop break.

Be Patient & Pay Attention – Avoid A Driving Assault

  1. Don’t yell or use obscene gestures.
  2. Don’t block the passing lane.
  3. Stay to the right if you are obstructing the flow of traffic.
  4. Always signal when changing lanes.
  5. Use your horn sparingly.
  6. Don’t tailgate.
  7. Cooperate
  8. Don’t compete on the road.
  9. Let other drivers merge into traffic in an orderly fashion.
  10. Don’t take another’s actions personally. Everybody makes mistakes.
  11. Don’t react to another driver’s uncivil behavior
  12. Avoid eye contact
  13. Don’t accelerate, brake or swerve suddenly, which can be seen as confrontational.
  14. If confronted by an aggressive driver, go to the nearest police station if you continue to be hassled or think you are being followed.
  15. Lock your doors.
  16. When stopped in traffic, leave enough space to pull out from behind the car you are following.

RAGE MANAGEMENT

RAGE MANAGEMENT THERAPY

Call Richard Taylor 678.576.1913 of ATLANTA ANGER MANAGEMENT
For
Rage Help.

Rage is an emotion felt by some that is often expressed as a sudden outburst “RANT”
from a small activating event usually directed toward a loved one. Often the person feels very powerful and tends to “lose time” that shows as memory lose of at least some of the expression of this emotion. Often quite a lot of memory is missing or “blocked out”.

It is considered the most extreme expression of anger and here at Atlanta Anger Management treated a bit differently than our “normal” angry clients.

Why you might ask…?

We consider Rage and Anger as different.

A simple differentiation is:

Anger: I can remember what I say and do.
Rage: Most often I cannot remember what I say or do.

Learning education based Anger Management skills can improve your overall anger control skills yet often the Rage remains.

Rage is associated with the Fight-Flight-Freeze response and often activated in response to an external minor cue. The person tends to have a passive nature and stuffs daily stress and low grade angry feelings until their “pressure cooker” is full and needs to blow to let off steam. A rant issues directly usually to one person. It tends to get more frequent in it’s expression and more intense also. If left unchecked rage may lead to violence.

Depression and anxiety lead to an increased susceptibility to rage and there are modern treatments for this emotional pattern.

Rage can sometimes lead to a state of mind where the individual experiencing it believes, and often is capable of doing things that may normally seem physically impossible. Those experiencing rage usually feel the effects of high adrenaline levels in the body. This increase in adrenal output raises the physical strength and endurance levels of the person and sharpens their senses, while dulling the sensation of pain. Temporal perspective is also affected: people in a rage have described experiencing events in slow-motion.

An explanation of this “time dilation” effect is that instead of actually slowing our perception of time, high levels of adrenaline increase our ability to recall specific minutiae of an event after it occurs. Since humans gauge time based on the amount of things they can remember, high-adrenaline events such as those experienced during periods of rage seem to unfold more slowly.[2]

A person in a state of rage loses much of his or her capacity for rational thought and reasoning, and may act, usually violently, on his or her impulses to the point that they may attack until they themselves have been incapacitated or the source of their rage has been destroyed.

A raging person also experiences tunnel vision, muffled hearing, increased heart rate and hyperventilation. They often focus only on the source of their anger.

The large amounts of adrenaline and oxygen in the bloodstream may cause a person’s extremities to shake. The become”scary looking”. Often the distorted facial expression is extreme.
Biochemistry
Rage occurs when oxytocin, vasopressin, and corticotropin-releasing hormone are rapidly released from the hypothalamus. This results in the pituitary gland producing and releasing large amounts of the adrenocorticotropic hormone, which causes the adrenal cortex to release corticosteroids. This chain reaction occurs when faced with a threatening situation.[4]

Anger is a secondary physical emotion caused from a primary feeling felt such as frustration, being disrespected, being manipulated etc. It is a present moment feeling.

Rage is an explosive emotion being triggered most often from a trivial event in a few short seconds bypassing anger. The rager goes into a “rant” and berates the object of the rant. Trust is destroyed. There are no consequences. No thought. Just Emotion. We can’t identify the feeling…it is just too intense and immense. It comes from the past.

Health Complications
Some research suggests that an individual is more susceptible to having feelings of depression and anxiety if he or she experiences rage on a frequent basis.

Health complications become much worse if an individual represses feelings of rage.[5] Dr.John E. Sarno believes that repressed rage in the subconscious leads to physical ailments. Cardiac stress and hypertension are other health complications that will occur when rage is experienced on a regular basis. Psycho-pathological conditions such as depression increase the chances of experiencing feelings of rage.[6] Cardiac Disease due to damaged blood vessels.

Treatment
Types of therapy
Evidence has shown that behavioral and cognitive therapy techniques have assisted individuals that have difficulties controlling their anger or rage.

Richard Taylor, Owner/Director of Atlanta Anger Management uses several different approaches to helping people who rage (RAGERS) depending on the individual’s openness to the process.

One on One Private Sessions are necessary, not anger management classes with others. The individual needs personal attention to address underlying issues and possible trauma that may be the root cause of this expression of high level anger.

Meditation
MRI scans of people who practice compassion meditation show that they have changed their brains in ways that make them more compassionate and less prone to negative emotions such as rage.[9]

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programs have also been scientifically demonstrated to produce more frequent and strong feelings of love and happiness and less feelings of rage, anger, stress and depression. See Mindfulness topic on this blog.

The Psychology of Rage
According to psychologists, rage is a behavior that every person exhibits in some form.

Rage is often used to denote hostile/affective/reactive aggression (as distinct from predatory/instrumental/proactive aggression, which by contrast is motivated by a desire to obtain some goal by use of aggression).[10]

It denotes aggression where there is anger present, that is motivated by causing some harm to others, and that is characterized by impulsive thinking and a lack of planning.

Some psychologists, however, such as Bushman and Anderson, argue that the hostile/predatory dichotomy that is commonly employed in psychology fails to define rage fully, since it is possible for anger to motivate aggression, provoking vengeful behavior, without incorporating the impulsive thinking that is characteristic of rage. They point to individuals or groups such as Seung-Hui Cho in the Virginia Tech massacre or Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold of the Columbine High School massacre, and the suicide bombers of 9/11, all of whom clearly experienced intense anger and hate, but whose planning (sometimes over periods of years), forethought, and lack of impulsive behavior is readily observable.[11]

Rage

Rage usually represents the ultimate push of hormones creating an outrageous expression, both emotional and physical. Many of the effects that stem from anger and how a person reaches the point of expressing rage is a fine line associated with these behavioral tendencies. Rage is considered to be an emergency primal reaction that humans are pre-wired to express. Rage tends to be expressed when a person faces a threat to their pride, position, status or dignity.[12]

Expression of rage can be very intense, often distinguished by distorted facial expressions and by threat (or execution) of physical attack. Rage is associated with individuals who experience psycho-pathological issues. This can lead to physical violence resulting in serious injury or death.[13]
Self-esteem is another factor of one feeling rage; evidence has shown that individuals that suffer from low self-esteem may compensate by inflicting physical harm onto others.[14]

Some psychologists have seen rage as being internally focused, constituting an attack on one’s self rather than on others. They believe this leads to rage being more intense, less focused and longer lasting. They also believe this ‘self-inflicted’ rage is a narcissistic response to one’s past injuries. Rage, under this set of theories, is caused from built up anger from past traumas. These accumulated dispositions are stored in our mind.[15]

Rage can also be released in the wake of a traumatic event. In people who witness the killing of a loved one, many will often enter or “go into a rage”, attempting to kill the perpetrator. This can sometimes be the most violent and reluctant type of rage and will usually end only after the killer or they themselves have been killed.

The Cannon-Bard Theory
Whether or not actions arise from the emotional state of rage is the subject of controversy in cognitive study. Cannon-Bard holds that a stimulus causes both the reaction and the emotion at once. Thus, a person would not first become enraged and then act, but do both simultaneously. Richard Taylor agrees with this.
