ANGER MANAGEMENT  PROGRAM                                                                                             



The Anger Management Program at Barnabas Healthcare assists clients to look at anger in a new way. 


Moving beyond traditional treatment that targets this deep emotion at the surface level, we train people to understand their anger and channel this negative emotion to healthy behavior.



Our 8 week program uses a Cognitive Behavioral approach to increase awareness and modify responses.  Topics include:


·         What is anger?

·         How do you – as an individual – handle your personal anger?

·         Personal triggers and automatic thoughts

·         Assertiveness vs. Aggressiveness

·         Anger and the family

·         The role of short frustration tolerance

·         Cognitive restructuring

·         Progressive muscle relaxation

·         The role of power and control

·         Facing versus avoiding vulnerable feelings masked by anger

·         Effects of anger on relationships

·         Learning to control anger and painful feelings

·         Understanding and overcoming what is underneath anger

·         Personal responsibility and self-discipline

·         Overcoming psycho-social blocks to managing anger



Anger Management –

15 Common Types of Anger

Repressed Anger - People who are not aware that they are angry, but experience physical symptoms (depression, anxiety, ulcers, etc.)

Suppressed Anger - People who are aware they are angry, but choose to hide it from others.

Passive-Aggressive Anger – Indirect anger; People who procrastinate, gossip and use “the silent treatment” when they are angry at others.

Paranoid Anger - People who think that you are angry at them without any evidence to prove otherwise.

Impulsive Anger - People who have a “short fuse” and explode without considering the consequences.

Shame-based Anger - People who attempt to cover-up their inner shame, embarrassment with things such as perfectionism and become rage-filled when they fail or are forced to deal with it.

Intentional Anger - People who use anger to get their way with others; or use anger as a release of frustration.

Mood-Altering Anger - People who use anger to elevate their mood when they are feeling depressed; or anger that is actually depression in power clothing.

Habitual Anger - People who find anything to be angry about 24/7.

Defensive Anger - People who use anger to protect themselves against others who have been hurtful and are unable to forgive them.

Righteous Anger – Holier-than-thou; People who believe they are moral and justified in their fighting for something greater than themselves.

Road Rage Anger - People who have extremely immature and short frustration tolerances.

Hell Hath No Fury Anger - People who feel jilted by someone they love or felt close to

Deflective Anger - People who use anger to cover up or distract another focus (e.g., substance use; infidelity)

Bullying Anger - People who try to control or intimidate other through fear

Treatment Approach and Goals

1. Identify one or more of the 15 types of anger that personally applies.   (These are just common types of anger – our groups explore the unique type(s) of anger of its participants and significant others) 

2. Recognize the signs, symptoms, and impact of anger.                                                                 

3. Identify impaired thinking that promotes anger.                                                                            

4. Learn strategies to manage anger more effectively.                                                                      

5. Learn the difference between healthy and unhealthy anger.                                                                     

6. Reduce the body tension of anger by learning de-escalation (self-talk/deep-breathing techniques).

7. Learn conflict resolution skills

                                                         8. Learn how to apply to real life situations

                                            What is

                                   Barnabas Ministry?


                                  Two 12 week in-home,

                             at-work, or through-church

                                study courses




   Barnabas Ministry is...

an in-depth discipleship ministry of

ENCOURAGEMENT. Participants are

equipped to encourage, counsel, understand,

and speak a new language of woundedness

which reaches today’s culture within and

without the church.

The church is filled with wounded people

or people experiencing wounding

circumstances whose receptivity to Christ,

His will, and His peoples’ care, Body life, and

encouragement is blocked by those very

wounds - usually without their understanding.

The hope of this ministry is to awaken and

illumine a call to a dynamic ministry of

encouragement: individuals ministering to

individuals (within and without the church)

with biblical directives and spiritual and

psychological accouterments to assist in

reaching and impacting a numbed, dysfunctional,

and hurting Christian culture and a dying,

sin-stained world.

William J. Powis, II, M.Div.

Barnabas Consulting, Inc


   Pastor Powis gets it. Most pastors, and Christian leaders,

 think that they do but they don't - and they don't know that they don't.

The result is that their ministry (especially horizontal)

 is far less effective (unrecognized) than it needs to be;

that they harm people without knowing it;

that they become  injured  themselves OR all of the above.

Bill is my dear friend.

    He loves the Lord and sees the silent, hidden injury that is occurring in and through the church.

  He is incredibly gifted at understanding the principles and applications of Barnabas Ministry.

   He is uniquely able to help you, your church, your community,

your workplace, your neighborhood.

He represents the very soul of Barnabas Ministry.

Let him help.  The Lord uses him and you will be blessed.

Let him help you catch and defeat the cancer before it is too late.

Just contact him - now - and you'll see what I mean.
