Dr. Cathy Reimers, Ph.D., psychologist in New Jersey, and co-host Jennifer Russello, parent in New Jersey, discuss how anger can manifest around the crazy holidays, causing family drama, over-indulgence and other "not so joyous" scenarios. Holidays force family members to interact with each other, sometimes re-igniting lifetime dynamics and painful issues. It’s as if many of the feelings we have about family dynamics and relationships lie dormant until the holidays burst into our lives and begin stirring up the family storms that have been brewing over the years.  Many reports show that shortly after the holidays, there is an increase in the number of people seeking therapy for anger management. Why is this? Why do so many people have an emotional hangover after family visits? Join us to discuss ways to manage anger around the holidays so that your time with friends and family is peaceful and enjoyable rather than hurtful and stormy.
