Anger issues impact quality of life and can hinder healthy relationships. Anger is not an inherently destructive emotion if expressed and channeled adaptively. Anger can be healthy if it is used to motivate a person to assertive expression of needs, boundaries, and feelings. In cases of maladaptive anger, angry feelings are unmodulated, overly intense, poorly controlled, and/or used to hurt, control, intimidate, or coerce others. Anger is often an indication of trauma, helplessness, underlying depression, or other area of vulnerability that can be explored, processed, and worked through to allow the individual choice for healthy expression and assertion of emotions and needs.

Cognitive therapy, will helps you find alternative ways of thinking about and reacting to anger. Skill development, is another helpful resource and can help you to learn new behaviors. According to researchers a combination of all three approaches
