MANAGING ANGER IN THERAPY SESSIONS
Michael Mesmer, LMFT




Anger is often felt in therapy sessions, both in the moment by client and/or clinician and by reference to anger felt at other times, by clients or others in their lives. This presentation describes the challenges clinicians face in managing anger in therapy sessions and suggests interventions that can help clients and clinicians both inside and outside therapy.


Goals include defining various kinds of anger and how they manifest in therapy; identifying several self-assessment and self-soothing tools that can be helpful in managing anger; and reinforcing anger management approaches that attendees themselves have used with clients.


Michael Mesmer, LMFT, has been managing anger since growing up in an abusive family and neighborhood where anger and the threat of anger were commonplace. He has special training and over 14 years of experience in providing domestic violence treatment and anger management for clients wanting to reduce anger and end violence in their lives. Michael has maintained a private practice office in San Rafael, CA since 2001 and more recently in Ashland, OR, where he was licensed last fall as an MFT.


Time: Networking is from 11:30 to 12:00 p.m. Presentation begins at 12:00 pm and ends at 2:00 p.m.


Cost: Free for Marin CAMFT members, $10 for non-members.
