Anger is a natural emotional state that people experience in response to a wide variety of situations. You may feel angry at being stuck in traffic on your way to work, or at your spouse for misunderstanding your needs. Or you may still feel anger in response to old experiences that seem impossible to get over. Perhaps you no longer speak to a former best friend or family member for betraying your confidence years ago. Maybe you have distressing angry feelings toward a parent.
Your anger is not the problem; how you express that anger, though, could be. Appropriately expressed anger can be a way to clear the air, vent feelings and open the door to honest two-way communication that resolves issues. Poorly expressed anger, such as uncontrolled rage, is both frightening and destructive. All too often a person who is not able to appropriately express anger will feel embarrassed and out of control.
If you have trouble controlling how you express your anger, chances are good that you already know it. People may say you have a short fuse, a quick temper, or tell you that your anger frightens them. Your uncontrolled explosions of rage probably frighten you too.
Psychotherapy can provide help. By working with a skilled therapist and focusing on the ways you express your anger and on the underlying issues bothering you, you can learn new skills and new ways of thinking. Then, instead of finding yourself in destructive situations, you will be able to harness your feelings, including anger, to build better and supportive relationships.
Anger management therapy can help you learn new skills to cope with your anger as well as new ways of thinking constructively so you can build healthy relationships in the future.
