Feelings of anger can range from feelings of mild irritation to intense rage. While experiencing anger may be an understandable and healthy reaction it can become excessive when it leads to destructive behaviors, affects relationships, and compromises our health.
The goal of anger management is to reduce both your angry feelings and the physiological arousal that anger causes. It’s not always possible to completely avoid situations that trigger anger, such as specific individuals or circumstances. However, you can develop the ability to manage your responses.
