One of the first steps in working with chronic anger and irritability is to rule out factors such as depression or even brain trauma and dementia. Once those factors are ruled out, it is important to look for patterns when anger flareups occur, and to increase awareness of "early warning signs" and retrain the body to respond to symptoms of "flooding" (increased blood pressure, heart rate, etc.) with calming strategies (deep breathing exercises and mindfullness practices). Finally, looking at thoughts and beliefs that contribute to feeling angry can help change the frequency and intensity of anger.

Anger is part of our emotional life and does not, in and of itself, predict anything bad or good. Anger, if it is not well managed, can however be very destructive to individuals and relationships. Exploding anger and stuffing anger have the very same hurtful physiological effects. The relevant issues need to be dealt with in an effective manner to fully deal with the angry feelings. The start of therapy is an assessment of the individuals style of anger. Learning cognitive behavioral, self soothing and positive self expression skills can go a long way to help deal with the important issues and manage the feelings of anger and the related hurts.
