Module 5 - Making sense of intense emotions
Chapter 1: Coping with your anger
- While anger is a normal emotion, it can be destructive to ourselves and those around us if we do not control it.
- Anger is how some of us respond to stress.
- When we get in touch with what drives our anger, we can make choices about how to address it.
- If your anger is lasting a long time, or if you are expressing your anger in excessive and/or inappropriate ways, talk to your family doctor or a mental health professional.
- Anger generally becomes less intense or disappears when it is understood. If you experience persistent anger, you may benefit from counselling.
