Before we talk about anger management skills, we first need to talk about anger as an emotion. Anger is a normal feeling that everyone experiences. Anger can range from slight annoyance to fits of fury. Some feel anger every day, while others may only encounter it when pushed to the "breaking point."
Anger can be caused by both internal and external events, and it can affect us both physiologically and biologically. Anger often arrives with very little notice, and can leave us with feelings of exhaustion, depression and regret. To release anger effectively, we must employ positive anger management skills.

Anger is a healthy emotion. Each of us must find personal ways to experience and express it. That is what anger management skills are all about.
