Anger and Domestic Violence Exposed

Anger is normal and a healthy energizing response to real intrusions.  However, anger can also come from a perception of unfairness or fear. The person with an anger problem feels abnormally stressed most of the time.  Making the distinction between situations that require anger for protection and annoyances that simply require a deep breath is a skill. It can be learned, and it can save families, health and careers. Anger that lasts too long or happens too frequently can indicate a need to learn anger management skills.

Easily angered people don't always curse and throw things; sometimes they withdraw socially, sulk, or get physically ill. Research has found that, typically, people who are easily angered come from families that are disruptive, chaotic, and not skilled at emotional communications.

Signs of the need for anger management:

  • Cussing/swearing a lot, high drama descriptions
  • Feeling frustrated often
  • Constantly putting others down
  • Criticizing everything
  • Inability to understand another person's feelings
  • Chronically irritable or grumpy
  • Seeing the dark side of things more often than not
  • Frequently making cynical comments
  • Regularly thinking or saying, "That's horrible."
  • Repeatedly thinking or saying, "Everything's ruined."
  • Often thinking or saying, "That g**d** boss/machine/person."
  • Reacting with high drama
  • Saying "always" or "never" about yourself or others
  • Demanding and expecting (instead of asking and waiting) to get something from someone- or get something done by someone
  • Responding to hurts with anger instead of responding with hurt

***The most common traumatic stressors for young children include: accidents, physical trauma, abuse, neglect, and exposure to domestic and community violence.
