Anger Management

Anger is a normal, healthy emotion.  Like all emotions, it is neither good nor bad.  It conveys information to someone, letting them know a situation is upsetting, unjust, or threatening.   The trouble starts when your standard reaction to anger is to explode.   It is likely that your message never has a chance to be conveyed.  Anger management becomes a problem when you express feelings in a way that harms yourself or others.  This is where it crosses the line from communication to things like bullying, intimidation, and aggression.


Most angry people see expressing  anger as healthy and that people around them are being too sensitive, that their anger is “justified”, or that they just need to show someone they “mean business” to get respect.   The truth is that anger expression is much more likely to have a negative impact on the way people see you, impair your judgment, and get in the way of progress.  While there are significant negative effects associated with bottling up angry feelings; chronic anger displays can spiral out of control and have serious consequences to your:

  • Physical Health

  • Mental Health

  • Career

  • Relationships
