Comprehensive Information, Knowledge, Tools and Resources About Anger & Anger Management
Since the early 1970's, we have gained much knowledge about the emotion of anger and its expression. A comprehensive set of tools and information resources about managing our healthy expression of anger are presented on this website. Our goal is to share the knowledge we have gained about anger over the years through our connections with the people who visit us here. We have witnessed making a meaningful difference in people's lives. We clearly know and appreciate the difference that education and tools can make when it comes to handling anger more effectively. Change is possible!
Anger is a fact of life, a normal and natural emotion that everyone experiences at times.
We are not going to eliminate anger from the planet. Anger is simply a part of our humanness and actually helped us survive as a species. Depending on how it is handled, anger can build self-confidence and self-esteem and enhance your relationships with others, or it can create guilt and shame and destroy trust and intimacy. It really has to do with how you experience and express it. When expressions of anger become abrasive, punishing, shaming, vengeful, and abusive or when you don't express anger at all, you begin to take a toll on your emotional, physical, relationship, and spiritual well-being. If you truly want to change this part of yourself, you need to first understand what anger is (and what it isn't) and then learn more effective ways to handle anger whenever it does arise.
Our world, in many ways, has become a dangerous and violent place.
We hear about disrespect, control, prejudice, hatred, abuse, and violence almost everywhere: in our homes and our schools, at our workplaces, on our roadways, in our neighborhoods and communities, and in the world-at-large. There is just too much hurtful, disrespectful, and abusive anger all around us. But it doesn’t have to be this way. These destructive attitudes and behaviors are not, in fact, the same thing as anger, an emotion which we describe in great detail in this website. These attitudes and behaviors are—in reality—distortions and perversions of anger the emotion and are not what anger the emotion is intended to be.
This website and our services are offered to you, your families, and your organizations in the hopes that together we can make this a more caring, loving, and peaceful world for all. Thanks for visiting us, and we are interested in your comments, reactions, and questions to anything that you see here.
