Anger Management

Anger can be the response to feeling vulnerable and helpless.  You can learn to deploy anger constructively and identify the blocked or dissatisfied feelings that contribute to frustration and anger. 

What is Anger?

Anger is a normal emotion experienced from time to time. It is natural to sometimes feel annoyed, frustrated, irritated, or angry.

 

Unfortunately, we often express anger with outbursts of shouting, yelling, and swearing. In extreme cases, angry outbursts are expressed by smashing and breaking objects, and physically or verbally hurting others or oneself.

 

Anger can also be expressed in subtle ways, such as being withdrawn, silent, or broody. Subtle anger can have the same negative psychological impact as outbursts. 

Anger can be intense and frequent. If we do not learn to control our anger it can be very destructive. By learning to control our anger we are more capable of engaging in constructive action.
