What’s Behind Your Anger?


The greatest pain does not come from the precipitating event, it comes from what we bring to the betrayal, the loss, the violation. We have taken this betrayal personally. We don’t know why we shouldn’t: “It happened to me, didn’t it?” We don’t know how else to take it. We have taken it as if it were a reflection on our worth as a person. We have been made to feel worthless, stupid, insecure, unlovable, inadequate to cope with life. These are all components of the self-contempt that has rushed in and crowded out the smidgeon of self-respect we used to have. We cannot respect a person who “allows” such a thing to happen, who has “failed” to see it coming in advance, and who has obviously failed to keep it from happening!

What is anger? Anger is an emotional response to antagonism in the past present or future, which may be real or imagined. Anger is painful and we need to get relief. When something happens in the present it reminds you of unfinished business in the past and compounds it

 


What is Anger Management?

Anger management counseling consists of  techniques, psychological and therapeutic, utilized to relieve stress caused by anger. The often simple process has proven effective helping people recognize triggers and control their emotions. Everyone is angry at times – it is a normal emotion we all experience; however, for many, their reactions go too far, harming others and leading to negative consequences. Counseling identifies situations likely to bring on such responses (they are different for each of us), and demonstrates alternative methods to avoid the damage caused by losing one’s temper.
