Do online anger management classes work or are they just a waste of time?

Katie Brooks Says...

Sometimes on-line education can be a great way to gain extra information.  See if there are any reviews on these programs and make sure that a licensed professional runs it.  In addition, find out what kind of program it is and match it to your learning style.  Everyone learns in a different way.  For example, some people are visual learners, others are auditory learners, and some learn best live and in the classroom.  It also depends on the extent of your anger and what kind of treatment you need.  If you are trying to educate yourself because you need better emotional management skills then on-line education should suffice.  If you are experiencing emotional problems that are causing dysfunction and impacting your health, friendships, spouse, and/or work then I would seek a counselor.  At this point you may need a higher level of treatment.  Good luck!
