ANGER: WHAT IS IT...AND WHAT DOES IT DO ?
THE WHAT: Anger is a physiological, psychological or emotional response to an external or internal stimulus which one perceives (and learns to label) as threatening, frightening, embarrassing, hurtful, frustrating or irritating !!!
THE WHY: Survival, Culture, Communication, Motivation, Psychological protection
· Anger blocks fear; a child returns home late; the angry parent blocks fear through an angry response. Emotions blocked by anger may include sadness, guilt, shame, feelings of failure or unworthiness.
· Anger may cover-up those feelings of frustration when one perceives that needs and interests are unachievable.
· Anger may be a response-tool to a perceived threat when one feels attacked or controlled. Conversely, anger may also be a control-tool to control or frighten others.
