We all get angry at one time or another for a variety of reasons. However, there is a great deal of variability in terms of level of anger and duration. People who get angry very quickly and intensely for an extended period of time, may need help in developing strategies to deal with this problem.
Anger, like anxiety, has both cognitive and physiological components. Cognitive components seem to focus around thoughts of being slighted in an intentional manner or your rights being disregarded. In terms of physiology, we have a very standard set of responses that our body goes through when we are becoming angry.
The management of anger addresses both of the components mentioned above. Cognitive reframing and examination of self statements are necessary to deal with the thoughts that lead to the experience of anger. Biofeedback can also be used in order to deal with the physiology that the body presents.
