A study found that anger management therapy offers positive results for fibro patients
A study conducted by Alexandra Stillman in Utah State University showed promising advantages of a 4-week program. The goal of the program was to increase patients' overall well-being by offering both cognitive, behavioral, and communication skills, along with the anger management. The therapy group involved a small number of patients, and they were asked to complete surveys and assessments to examine their:
- Incidents related to anger
- Levels of self-efficacy in pain and anger management
- Improvement in communication
- Changes in status of physical and emotional health
At the end of the 4-week therapy program, there were positive results. Some of the findings showed significant improvements in mental health and pain management. The participants also said that their communication with others had a significant improvement.
However, this study is just the beginning. These results can give practitioners a starting point for enhancing the quality of life for fibro patients. Coping with anger in a productive manner will help fibro patients to maintain positive relationships and develop new connections.
