Anger management & emotional regulation
Anger is completely normal and it should not be such a 'dirty' word. It really has
become that in many peoples' minds. We get worried about admitting to anger,
exhibiting it and addressing it. In these cases anger often becomes repressed
which is unhealthy and can lead to self-sabotaging behaviours and 'over-reactions' to others/ situations. On the other hand, some of us struggle with containing our anger and people 'freak out' around us. This is also not useful. So learning how to understand, manage and express anger (and other 'negative' emotions) healthily is a very important component of building and
nurturing our emotional intelligence. This means coping better with our own negative emotions and maintaining better quality relationships with others.
