Definition of anger - Anger is an emotion felt by everyone at some time or other. As a response to dispute or conflict, it is a natural defence against perceived threats and can vary in intensity.
Although many people are able to express their anger in non-threatening ways, some find it difficult to keep their emotions in check. In extreme cases anger may cause an individual to lash out or behave in an intimidating or aggressive manner. Among other things, anger can often result in alienation and have damaging effects on personal relationships.
Anger management therapy/counselling is designed to help people deal with their frustrations by confronting the causes. While anger management courses can not eliminate anger from people's lives they can provide individuals with the tools to help them control their problem. Below are a selection of links for anger management counselling services and help-lines.
