Anger

If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow.

~Chinese Proverb

Anger 

 

What is Anger?

Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when

it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems—

problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality

of your life. And it can make you feel as though you're at the mercy of an

unpredictable and powerful emotion.

 

What does psychotherapeutic treatment for Anger involve?

With the help of a therapist, a person who has anger issues may be able

to discover what lies at the root of his or her frustration and rage and can

potentially identify his or her anger triggers and learn healthy ways to

avoid or cope with those situations.

 

Emotional regulation is a key component of effective anger therapy; this

technique empowers an individual to be able to face uncertain and stressful

circumstances with self-control and an emotional balance that benefits the

individual's mental and physical health and the well-being of those around

them. Techniques such as progressive muscle relaxation, cognitive therapy and

skill development may be used to help individuals manage anger. Research

shows that a combination of the three tends to provide the most success in

treating anger.
