Subject Definitions

Anger is a natural response to feeling attacked injured or violated. It's part of being human; it's energy seeking expression. Our anger can be our friend. It helps us survive giving us the strength to fight back or run away when attacked or faced with injustice. In itself it's neither good nor bad but it can be frightening. Angry feelings can lead to destructive and violent behaviour and so we tend to be frightened of anger. The way we are brought up and our cultural background will very much influence how we feel about expressing anger. Many people have trouble managing their anger and may need help to learn how to deal with it in a constructive and healthy way.
