Anger is a completely acceptable emotion, something every one of us experiences at one time or another. What is not acceptable is when anger escalates to the point of "rage". When anger reaches the that stage the person is being overly reactive to a situation and is acting out of feelings and not his or her rational thinking. When I work with clients with anger management issues I help them to understand that there are ways they can control anger so it doesn't take control of them. By helping clients understand that rage is never acceptable and providing them with strategies for staying in control, clients and their families can have safer, more meaningful, fulfilling relationships.
