What is anger?
When an individual becomes angry, their heart rate and blood pressure increases as chemicals such as adrenalin are pumped through their body. Releasing this tension (often verbally or physically) may accompany these physical changes. However some individuals may not release this tension and suppress their anger. This usually leads to a build up of emotions causing them to ‘explode’ when it all becomes too much.
The goal of anger management is to control both the emotional feelings and physiological arousal that anger creates. Recognising anger and learning to express it in the correct way can help individuals handle emergencies and solve problems easier. The key is to learn how to react calmly when something causes those feelings of anger, without lashing out, shouting or becoming violent.
Symptoms of anger can include:
- aggressive behaviour
- explosive outbursts
- social withdrawal due to anger
- verbal or physical abuse
- tense muscles
- clenched jaw.
Causes of anger
Anger can be caused by both internal and external events and if it starts to interfere with an individual’s everyday life and relationships, help should be sought. Some of the most common causes of anger include frustration, hurt, threats, annoyance, harassment and disappointment. Other physical conditions found to initiate anger can be fatigue, hunger, hormonal conditions and sexual frustration. Each person is different and may react to certain conditions more than others.
