Title: DEALING WITH ANGER


1
DEALING WITH ANGER
  • PRESENTED BY
  • JOAN FITCH RN/B.S.N.

2
Aristotle Once Said
  • Anyone can get angry. That is easy. But to be
    angry with the right person, to the right degree,
    at the right time, for the right purpose and in
    the right way that is not easy.

3
  • What is anger?
  • Websters Dictionary a strong feeling of
    displeasure and, usually, antagonism
  • It is an emotional reaction to frustration or
    injury. In some cases, anger is beneficial, as it
    can spur us on to take action to correct a
    situation, or protect us from harm.
  • It can be an instrument of motivation to work for
    positive change

4
Aggression
  • An action we take with anger or frustration
    against others. It can lead to emotional,
    physiological or socially negative consequences.

5
Hostility
  • A state of chronic anger that can lead to
    aggression against others. It can be verbal,
    physical or emotional.

6
  • Anger - The Demon Within
  • Acting out our anger (e.g. yelling, hitting,
    throwing objects, driving too fast), or hurting
    others is not a healthy, or necessary expression
    of anger. When we act out our anger we damage
    others trust in us create a burden of shame
    that we then carry pass on our problems to
    others destroy intimacy alter our potential in
    society and relationships.

7
  • What psychologists know about anger
  • it is normal
  • it is experienced by everyone
  • it is not something you outgrow
  • it is a powerful feeling, but one you can learn
    to manage
  • it is not the same thing as aggression, which is
    behavior (such as hitting someone) that may
    result in serious consequences if you cannot
    control your anger

8
There are multiple books, web sites and
counselors who deal with anger management. This
is a reflection of how concerning and pervasive
this normal human emotion is.
9
The Dimensions of Anger
  • There are five interrelated dimensions all
    operating simultaneously in any angry situation
  • cognition- our present thoughts
  • emotion- the physiological arousal that anger
    produces
  • communication - the way we display our anger
  • affect - the way that we experience life when we
    are angry
  • behavior - the way we behave when we are angry

10
Physiologic Signs of Anger

  • STOMACHACHES
  • INCREASED HEART RATE
  • RAISED BLOOD PRESSURE
  • CLENCHED FISTS
  • RED FACE
  • TIGHTNESS IN THROAT/CHEST
  • VERBAL/PHYSICAL ABUSE
  • INDIRECT SIGNS OF ANGER
  • CHRONIC FATIGUE

11
Long Term Health Effects
  • Anger is an intense emotion that produces an
    adrenalin rush. If an individual is chronically
    angry or has frequent bouts of anger, adrenalin
    is released often. This constant rise of
    adrenalin results in a physiologic stress that
    decreases your immune systems ability to ward off
    infections. It creates both mental and physical
    fatigue and leads to.
