An individual will eventually become angry when provoked the wrong way. When a person becomes angry, this should not be viewed as a bad thing. People are entitled to express angry emotions because anger is a natural and legitimate response to a provocation. The problem is not that we exercise our right to be angry, but that we sometimes express our anger in an inappropriate way. When a person seeks anger management training, s/he might think, “I need help controlling my anger.” The fact is, expressing an angry emotion is OK. What some individuals lack are skills they can use to control their “behavior” when they become angry. It’s the manner in which anger is expressed that is problematic, not anger. Wouldn’t you agree? docsmb
