Summary of Research

Anger is a serious problem in society, but it can be controlled. “Anger problems often stem from what you’ve learned as a child. If you watched others in your family scream, hit each other, or throw things, you might think this is how anger is supposed to be expressed.” Others may experience anger from stress or other traumatic events. One of the outcomes of anger can be aggressive behavior which can lead to violence, broken relationships, and guilt. Another form of anger known as suppressed anger, can lead to health problems such as high blood pressure, depression, and anxiety. Anger is not always a bad thing. “Anger is a natural, adaptive response to threats; it inspires powerful, often aggressive, feelings and behaviors, which allow us to fight and to defend ourselves when we are attacked. A certain amount of anger, therefore, is necessary to our survival.” We need to learn to understand our anger because it may be masking our true feelings. “In order to get your needs met and express your anger in appropriate ways, you need to be in touch with what you are really feeling. Are you truly angry? Or is your anger masking other feelings such as embarrassment, insecurity, hurt, shame, or vulnerability?” It’s important for people to learn how to deal with their anger in a positive way. One example is to take a time out and ask yourself the question what am I really feeling? Anger is a serious problem today, but with practice it can be controlled.
