Has the concept of anger management been restricted ?

Posted on: January 6, 2008

I want to say categorically yes. For too long have the masses believed that anger management is for the out of control. However I want to suggest that anger management is a performance issue. If one considers that for a hundred people out there who display out of control anger there are thousands who quietly suffer because they feel that it is socially inappropriate to fly off the handle but they are unsure on how to express their disagreement effectively.

Many of these individuals say no when they mean yes and yes when they mean no and essentially become invisible to their ownselves. They lack an identity, a purpose and are slaves to the wished and desires of others. They have become so passive that others what they believe and desire has been tacked away in the far reaches of their mind.

It is this group of people that worry me most. They are the silent majority that really need anger management. They need the skills to set boundaries-rather than suppress the need to express. Without much needed anger management skills they will perform way below their potential. If you struggle with suppressed anger or have a had time setting boundaries contact an anger management provider today.

I appreciate your comments. There are so many people who believes that anger management is resigned to the batterer or gang member, or the out of control football coach. In reality, most of us need to be aware of our own behavior and practice empathy.

I believe that it starts with stress management and realizing who we are. Thanks again for the information.
