Many different types of therapy may be helpful in treating aggressive or violent behavior.
Most often for this type of problem, you would see a psychologist or other type of counselor for cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). That is a specific type of therapy to help people learn to understand the cause of their emotions and behaviors and how to improve ways of managing or reducing the intensity of negative feelings such as anger leading to aggression. CBT focuses on the interrelationships between events, thoughts, feelings, and behavior to identify the source of problems and make changes to improve outcomes and quality of life. Find a therapist skilled in CBT to help yourself get past your problems with aggression.
