Everybody feels anger at some stage of their lives, and it can be deemed a completely normal emotion. It is when it gets out of hand and either yourself or the people are around you are in danger of being harmed is when you need to seek help.
Anger is frequently a result of frustration, or of feeling thwarted from something that you feel is important. Anger can also be a defensive response to underlying fear or feelings of vulnerability or powerlessness.
There are many causes of excessive anger, including alcoholism or drug addiction, PTSD, stress, poverty or a history of trauma. Migraines can even be associated with aggression levels and anger management is often required.
Anger management treatment can include relaxation techniques, problem solving, improving interpersonal skills and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). It is often recommended that an anger journal is kept. Treatment for anger management can be either in a group environment or on a one-to-one basis.
