Anger issues can be divided into two broad groups:
1) Difficulty in being aware of feelings of anger and expressing anger
2) Difficulty in controlling anger.
Often, problems with the former may lead to problems with the latter.
Like many other issues, the roots of these difficulties often lie in childhood and early experiences within your family and environment. For example, how did your parents handle anger? How did you respond to this?
Many of us assume that the only ways of handling angry feelings are to either act them out (for example by shouting at someone or using violence), or to suppress them completely. As a result, we can risk becoming either a bully or a doormat.
But there is another possibility: learning to express anger appropriately. This can be done in such a way that you can make your feelings very clear – but without attacking the person you are angry with. If you can master this skill, then it becomes possible to ‘discharge’ your anger and leave it behind, instead of carrying it around like an unexploded bomb!
In my experience, work on anger is often about teaching clients how to act assertively and use the powerful energy of anger in creative and constructive ways.
