Coping with anger

Coping with Anger

Anger is an emotional, physical and mental response to the “perception” of an injustice, threat or attack on our personhood. The threat may be real or imaginary; past, present, or future. But if you “feel” you have been wronged; if you feel you have somehow been treated unfairly, you will automatically become angry.

Anger is rooted in our survival instincts and has a legitimate and vital function in human behaviour. The problem is not anger; the problem is the inappropriate management of anger.

Self-help techniques and solutions for managing anger, controlling anger and expressing anger are presented.
