Anger Management


What is Anger Management

In order to understand anger, it’s important to know the difference between feeling angry and acting on those feelings. An example of a feeling would be when you get cut off in traffic and become irritated. Acting on that emotion might mean yelling at the other driver or honking your horn repeatedly. These are things that can escalate an already tense situation. 

Keep in mind that everyone experiences anger differently; some people may be more prone to rage than others, while others may internalize their emotions until they explode unexpectedly later on down the road. 

However you experience your anger is okay – what matters most is managing these emotions responsibly so as not to hurt yourself or anyone else around you!

How is anger management described?

Anger management is an anger reduction and control psycho-therapeutic program. It has been identified as successfully deploying rage.

Anger is also a product of annoyance, or of feeling blocked or hindered by something that the person thinks is important. Rage may also be a defensive reaction to latent anxiety or feelings of insecurity or impotence. Anger management systems interpret anger to be a desire triggered by an observable motive that can be evaluated objectively and progressed against, if possible. This article explains to you what anger is and how to manage it.

Our emotions are feelings that enable us to adapt to environmental expectations, lead us to a behavior. Such as fear, amazement, sadness, joy… Anger is one of them.

Anger is natural as long as it does not get out of control and become a destructive feeling, as long as it does not disturb our relations with other people, our business life, and as long as we can control and manage it.

Anger can range from a slight tension to a devastating explosion. When we get angry, some physiological changes occur in our body, just like other emotions: heart rate and blood pressure increase, energy and excitement substances, also called adrenaline and noradrenaline levels in the blood increase.

In fact, anger is a secondary emotion. Generally, feelings and thoughts such as jealousy, loneliness, misunderstanding, disregard, injustice, worthlessness, embarrassment, rejection, sadness, desperation, failure, disfavor, exclusion cause anger.

The anger must be expressed in some way. Otherwise, it causes physical health deterioration (headaches, circulatory problems, stomach problems, risk of heart attack, etc.) and emotional problems (anxiety, depression, etc.).

Gaining the ability to express anger correctly is called “anger management“. The aim here is to express oneself without violence, self-harm as well as harming others. There are many methods for anger management. Some of those:

  • Relaxation
  • Cognitive restructuring (changing the way of thinking)
  • Developing problem-solving skills
  • Developing communication skills
  • Minor measures like changing the environment.

A life without anger is impossible. In spite of all efforts, some things may justify our anger. Life will be full of frustration, pain, loss and unpredictable actions of other people. We cannot change them, but in some ways, we can try to prevent these events from affecting us.
