I cannot take this any longer, it is too much, and I am tired… familiar expressions? These outburst of strong emotions are usually out of frustration or anger. Anger is a natural, instinctive response to threats. Some anger is necessary for our survival. But if it occurs too frequent than necessary then you might just be suffering from intermittent explosive disorder commonly referred to as anger management crisis. It is commonly describes as “flying into rage for no reason”. Anger management control occurs mostly amongst teens but can be seen in children as well. It should be noted that it is not a permanent condition but earlier diagnostics and therapy classes can work the magic.

The experience of anger can range from mild irritation, to frustration, all the way up to seething rage.  As a matter of fact, even boredom is a mild version of anger in the form of dissatisfaction with what is happening. Everybody feels anger at different times, to varying degrees. It’s simply part of the human experience. Feelings of anger can arise in many different contexts. Experiencing unjust treatment, hearing a criticism, or simply not getting what you want are but a few of the potential triggers.

Mental illness are usually underlying factors of anger management control. For some people anger is caused by an underlying disorder, such as alcoholism or depression.  What many people don’t realize is that anger is a secondary emotion. Typically, one of the primary emotions, like fear or sadness, can be found underneath the anger.  Fear includes things like anxiety and worry, and sadness comes from the experience of loss, disappointment or discouragement. Because fear and sadness makes people feel vulnerable, they shift into the anger mode as a means of masking their true intentions. Essentially, anger can be a means of creating a sense of control and power in the face of vulnerability and uncertainty.
