Anger can be appropriate in a relationship or on the job if delivered in a timely, clear,direct manner and if the person communicating makes it about themselves, their needs and wants and not a character assassination of the other person. Often if someone holds on to feelings the tendency is to explode which comes out with a lot of heat and not much light. Name calling, hitting, throwing objects,swearing at,demeaning, s interferes with communication and connection. Some of these behaviors are learned and can be unlearned. Processing feelings what is needed and lacking with direct clear feedback, in-session practice of communication, homework, stress management helps to diffuse explosion.
