Anger is a normal and healthy emotion that signals to us that we don’t like something that is happening in our environment. While there is nothing wrong with anger itself, many people express their angry feelings with inappropriate behaviors. A hot temper can lead to relationship difficulties, work problems, and even legal troubles. Effective techniques, however, can be learned to manage anger with healthy responses. People can be taught to vent their anger in productive ways leading to effective communication with others and more satisfying life relationships.
