Anger Management

Anger Management

 

Anger is a strong emotion that can range from mild irritation to intense emotion. While most people would consider anger to be predominantly a “negative emotion,” it could also motivate a positive social change when you stand up for others.  

 

When anger is unregulated, it may lead to aggressive acts, such as shouting at someone or destroying property. Angry feelings can also cause you to withdraw from the world and focus your frustration inward, which can have negative consequences for your mental and physical well-being. Anger becomes an issue when it is felt too often or strongly, or when it is displayed in unhealthy ways, which can have a negative impact on one’s physical, emotional, and social well-being. As a result, rage is a natural reaction.

 

Anger is a natural human emotion. It is critical to understand how to manage and express anger appropriately, which is what anger management is all about. Anger management is a psychotherapeutic approach to learning how to express your emotions of anger in a more positive and effective way. This is commonly used as a diagnosis or psychological treatment for those who are irritable or who spiral out of control during their emotional outbursts.

 

Everyone expresses anger in a unique way. Some people are able to have control while others behave in an aggressive manner when they are angry. Here are some red flags that you may be suffering from anger issues:

  • Emotional: constantly feeling irritated, impatient and hostile
  • Behaviour: Getting into frequent arguments with others, breaking things or driving recklessly, threatening to harm objects or people
  • Resorting to physical violence: hitting your partner or children when angry. 

 

Cognitive-behavioural techniques for anger management have been shown to be successful in several studies. These treatments include shifting your thinking and behaviour. They are based on the idea that your thoughts, feelings, and behaviour are all interconnected. Your feelings can be driven or suppressed by your thoughts and behaviours. So, if you want to shift your emotional state away from anger, you must change your thoughts and behaviour.
