Controlling Anger

March 26, 2018

In my practice, I sometimes see clients who are experiencing the negative effects of Anger. Anger can create a negative impact on your work, relationships and health. However, Anger does not have to rule your life. Anger management strategies can reduce the emotional and physiological effects of anger. 

 

What is Anger?

 

Anger is an emotion that can vary from irritation to rage. It is usually in response to a situation, person or even a traumatic memory. The body responds to Anger by increasing heart rate and blood pressure. It is important to note that

Anger is sometimes considered to be a secondary emotion that helps cover up and protect vulnerable feelings such as sadness, shame or even fear.

 

Some key strategies to combat Anger include:

1. Relaxation 

2. Cognitive Restructuring

3. Problem Solving

4. Communication

5. Humour

6. Changing Environments

 

For more information, the American Psychological Association (APA) has a helpful page dedicated to Controlling Anger
