Anger Management 

*Anger is a fundamental emotion that everyone experiences from time to time.

*From an early age, we learn to express anger by copying the angry behavior we see modeled around us, and by expressing angry behavior and seeing what they can get away with.

*Many people are brought up to think that it is inappropriate to express anger directly; that it must not be tolerated; that it is always dangerous. Such people learn to distrust anger, to bottle it up and ignore it, to express it only in indirect ways or to use it as a weapon.

*Angry people are capable of great ciolence, however, while anger can certainly be abused, it is more than a simple destructive force.

*Anger is also a critically important part of what might be called the self-preservation and self-defense instincts.

*People who are incapable of getting angry are also incapable of standing up for themselves.

*It is important that people learn how to express anger appropriately. People need to learn healthy and socially respectful ways to express angry feelings, and to not let anger get out of control to the point where it negatively affects relationships, employability, and health.
