What is Anger?
Anger is the most common of all emotions, with its roots in our brain. At times, anger can overwhelm us and lead to irreversible consequences on interpersonal relationships. This is one of the things that makes anger different from other emotions, especially when it becomes chronic.
Anger can be recognized by some physical symptoms such as a reddish face, pounding heart, or headache. It is linked to stress and health problems like high blood pressure or coronary diseases.
When someone becomes angry, there is an instinctive tendency to engage in aggressive behavior. However, this reaction could be prevented by applying immediate cognitive techniques. Moreover, there are many different ways to deal with anger. It is important to find the one that works for you and to use it every time you feel yourself getting angry.

Treatment options for Anger
Anger and aggression can be treated with anger management techniques. There are many methods to learn how to control your anger, such as better stress management, deep breathing exercises, meditation, and relaxation techniques. These simple techniques might help you reduce the frequency and intensity of angry outbursts or aggressive behavior.
Stress Management Techniques
There are several simple steps you can take to manage anger and stress. Keep a journal that tracks what’s going on right before your feelings of anger or aggression arise. This may help you identify triggers for feeling angry. Learn how to relax — such as through meditation, yoga, massage, or deep breathing exercises. Learn how to manage your time more effectively. Getting enough sleep. Eating healthy meals and exercising regularly.
Deep Breathing Exercises
Deep breathing exercises are a simple way to quickly relax your body, slow your heart rate, and improve your mood. Whenever you find yourself taken over by an outburst of anger, simply breathe in and breathe out. Repeat it a few more times.
Meditation is a way to focus your mind and calm your thoughts. It can be done in a variety of ways, including sitting with your eyes closed, focusing on your breath, or repeating a mantra (a word or phrase that you focus on).
Medications can also be prescribed to help people who have problems with anger and aggression. Antidepressants, mood stabilizers, and anti-anxiety medications might be prescribed if it is determined that another mental health condition is present as well.
How can therapy help with Anger?
Therapy can help individuals learn how to cope with their anger healthily. This may involve learning about the different types of anger, and the emotions that are typically associated with it. Learning examples of how anger may be helpful, and when it can lead to negative consequences can help an individual with their anger.
Therapy will also teach individuals about the connection between thoughts, feelings, physical sensations, and behavior. This means that changing their thinking can lead to changes in behavior or physical responses. Therefore if someone thinks that they are worthless every time they become angry, therapy can help them to reframe this thought so that they do not act out their anger.
Therapists may also provide coping mechanisms for dealing with stressful situations. If anger is frequently expressed in an uncontrolled or destructive manner, therapy can help to teach individuals how to communicate their feelings constructively.
Therapy options for Anger
Several different therapies can be helpful for anger management.

Interpersonal Therapy (IPT)
This therapy helps you to deal with difficult relationships that are contributing to anger. By improving communication and problem-solving skills, IPT may help you learn how to resolve conflicts in your close relationships.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
DBT is a type of therapy that focuses on balancing the need for change with acceptance. It can be helpful for people who have difficulty managing their anger, as well as other intense emotions.
