Using anger -trying to force respect never works

Features of Cognitive Principle Therapy

  • Uses “The Stop, Find, method [TM]” a unique method specifically developed for this program. It takes between 15 and 250 days to change a bad habit, but only 2-14 days to create a new habit, which will replace the old habit.
  • Uses the “Cognitive Principle Matrix [TM]” another unique tool which is based on the seven truths identified in all bad habits, including anger.
  • Teaches how and when to use the predictive mind and the comparative mind to substantially overcome negative situations
  • This is a psycho-educational therapy with a high degree of teaching of how to change by creating new habits which is significantly faster than changing old habits.
  • Gives constant feedback in the form of advice on what’s wrong and how to change, without specifically telling you what to do.
  • Explains the anger cycle using CPT which emphasizes reducing negative thinking about being respected while increasing respect within.

Impulse control is a key in anger counselling

With explosive anger the person normally has an impulsive personality and has learned the habit of by passing all the steps and goes straight to abuse.

One characteristic of an impulsive person is that they quickly return to normal and expect the person who is receiving the abuse to also get over it quickly.

An Additional technique is used to help those with impulsivity and explosive anger.

Teaching component in CPT relates to the following five areas:

  1. Learning how to create a new habit (sub-conscious) which overcomes anger.
  2. Ensuring that the client acts responsibly and does not try to exercise control without responsibility.
  3. Ensuring the client concentrates on their area of influence not their area of concern.
  4. Learning the difference between assertiveness and aggressiveness.
  5. Teaching how principles (trust, courage, respect, self-control, etc) develop character and lead to positive outcomes.
