What is Anger?
Anger is a feeling of displeasure or hostility. Anger is your body’s warning system telling you something is wrong. It is a natural response to a threat but can be destructive when expressed inappropriately. Anger has several components:
1) a physiological response,
2) a psychological response,
3) a cognitive or mental response.
Responses to anger may range from mild to severe (as seen in Intermittent Explosive Disorder). Intermittent Explosive Disorder is characterized by explosive eruptions lasting 10-20 minutes, resulting in injury or destruction of property. We treat a wide spectrum of anger issues from mild to severe, including Intermittent Explosive Disorder.
