Event description

Description

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Anger

PRESENTER: Dr AG Ahmed, Associate Professor of Psychiatry University of Ottawa

Workshop Description

Anger is a serious problem in clinical practice and society at large but is not considered a primary clinical problem. The mental health professionals continue to recognize anger as secondary to depression, mania, impulse, and personality disorders. There is a great need to address anger as a primary and secondary mental health concern.

The presence of anger and aggression in a psychiatric patient however, often alerts clinicians to future risk of aggression/violence. This workshop will provide a review of the research on anger as the basis for understanding dysfunctional anger and strategies for assessing and treating patients presenting with dysfunctional anger and impulsive aggression.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this workshop, the attendees would

  1. Clinical presentation of dysfunctional anger and its assessment
  2. Understand how anger symptoms are co-morbid with psychiatric disorders including personality disorders.
  3. Understand the treatment implications of dysfunctional anger in the psychiatric patient population.
  4. Review basic rational emotive-cognitive behaviour techniques in the treatment of dysfunctional anger.
