Experiencing anger is usually the result of first experiencing either hurt, fear, frustration, blame/shame, or guilt. Problem anger is typically handled by either holding it in or letting it out uncontrollably (implode or explode), both of which are unhealthy for the client and those around them. I use a cognitive behavioral approach which teaches the client how to think differently before they reach their out of control anger threshold and more effectively deal with the circumstances.
