ANGER ON MY MIND

Generations of the Angry

Posted on: July 27, 2007

 

No matter how many years I practice as a mental health professional I am stuck that it is my clients that teach me the most about life. I have known for a long time that anger is learned and hence can be unlearned but some years ago one of my clients took the brave step to search out the truth about where her anger originated. This story has stayed in my mind until today. This client decided to confront her aunt who raised her and who she knew was the source of her anger. She used the communication skills she learned in anger management class to ask her where her anger came from and in a rare moment of familial vulnerability this aunt told of her learned aggressiveness from her mother.

In an instant this client described fearing that her children would be fourth generation prone to anger. She realized that it was her responsibility to stop this trend before it became a reality for her children. Anger management classes from that point was no longer only about her but became more about her family legacy.
