Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) April 1, 2009
Anger management expert Marty Brenner of Beverly Hills, California is available for immediate comment as the US Government releases their warning on the SAMHSA web that warns of depression, suicidal thinking and other serious mental illnesses. It will raise warning flags for: Persistent sadness/crying; Excessive anxiety; Lack of sleep/constant fatigue; Excessive irritability/anger.
"The bad news is everywhere, and hitting close to home for many of us. Who doesn't know someone who is facing the loss of a job or the threat of foreclosure? Companies are downsizing and layoffs are happening. Unemployment rolls are getting longer by the day. The fallout from this situation is what's relevant now. The nightly news is profiling the everyday person who is facing homelessness and the ones who are a paycheck away from losing everything. The press has even recently reported on people who have taken their own lives after being foreclosed on. What's happening is that people feel they are losing control. And with that fear comes anger, anxiety, domestiv violence, depression and desperation," says Marty Brenner Certified Chemical Dependency Counselor (CCDC) and anger management facilitator and domestic violence counselor.
According to Brenner, anger and anxiety can be addicting and cyclical. Holding on to anger or living in a constant anxious state can do serious damage to yourself physically, mentally and spiritually. It can lead to high blood pressure, stomach and heart disease and depression. By the same token, letting go of those negative feelings in an inappropriate way can hurt you and those around you. Negativity, anger and anxiety can multiply they can also be addicting. This is why Brenner created the treatment center web site anger management classes to help people cope.
"What you believe about yourself could make or break you, loving ourselves and forgiving our past mistakes are steps in the right direction. Psychologists dating back to Freud have said that many of our emotional problems stem from stressing over, avoiding or denying parts of ourselves that we feel bad about. It is important to accept ourselves now and as we were then to begin to make progress. We need to be aware of negative labels we place on ourselves and those given to use by others. Let's say someone influential in your life, somewhere along the way, told you that you'd never amount to anything. Did you internalize that statement? Do you believe it to be true? If you do, those kind of statements can come back to haunt you, especially in stressful times. Perhaps you're facing a job loss. How will those feelings of worthlessness serve you? Not well if you hold the belief that you won't be able to find a job or provide for yourself or your family," says Marty Brenner.
