As you work toward your goals and get better at handling your anger in a healthy way, feel free to come back to this course for a refresher on strategies and techniques.

Here’s a quick recap, with links to what we covered:

When to get additional support

This course has focused on strategies we can implement on our own. However, another key to managing anger is finding someone we can trust and confide in.

Getting things off your chest and talking to someone you trust

Simply discussing what’s on our mind and how we feel often takes the edge off of how intense our emotions are. Talking with someone we trust (e.g., buddy or partner) to get some things off our chest can really help, as it reminds us we’re not alone with whatever challenges we are facing. Having someone to provide an external perspective can be invaluable.

If your anger issues persist and/or are overwhelming, there are options for professional support. Don’t suffer with your anger in silence or continually blow up and alienate yourself from those around you.

When our anger keeps negatively impacting our lives, seeking additional support is necessary. Reaching out to a pro means making the most of the resources you have available – it’s the same as seeing a physiotherapist to rehab from an injury.

Professional Support Options

Talk therapy is a great tool for managing anger.

Some men may hesitate to consider professional help, not knowing what it’s about or what it can do for them. Yet, for those who try it, therapy can be life-changing and instrumental in their recovery and well-being.

Finding the right fit may require some trial and error, but the effort is worthwhile. Working with a mental health professional can help uncover underlying issues, address long-held damaging beliefs, and lead to substantial improvements in our life and relationships.

Check out our Guide to Talk Therapy for Men, which lets you know what to expect, how to find a therapist, and how to make the most of the support they provide.

We also have a Therapist Directory, which can help you find a qualified therapist near you.

Anger management programs also exist and may be an option for some, depending on where you live. Just make sure any program you look into is teaches evidence-based approaches and is led by a professional (e.g., a social worker, counselor, or psychologist).


Try to continue practicing the strategies learned in this course over the coming days and weeks, which will help you figure out what works best for you. Then, in a few week’s time, you can retake our Anger Check to see if you’ve made any improvements or if you may need additional support.

It can be helpful to make a plan for when to reach out.

For example:

  • “If I ever get an Anger Check score of 12 or higher, I will contact 3 therapists to see if they are accepting clients.”
  • Or “If my score isn’t improving after 3 months of using both short-term and long-term strategies, I will look into options for anger management programs or try to find a therapist.”

As mentioned in Part 4: Managing Anger in the Long Run, our Managing Negative Thoughts and Mindfulness for Men courses introduce other useful skill sets to have.

The more tools we have in our toolkit, the more situations we can be prepared for and better navigate.

Rewiring Negative Thoughts

Mental health issues can really mess with our heads.

Cognitive restructuring is a powerful technique that can help us take control of our thoughts, emotions, and overall mindset.

This course includes interactive exercises and examples that make it easier for us to apply these techniques in our everyday life.

Mindfulness for Men

Mindfulness is a potent skill that helps us avoid destructive or automatic habits and responses by learning to observe our thoughts, emotions, and other present-moment experiences without judging or reacting to them.

This course includes simple daily practices, as well as step-by-step guided meditations that you can work on weekly towards becoming more emotionally resilient.
