Description

Anger is a reaction. Its a pseudo or secondary emotion that comes to the surface as a result of other hidden emotions such as fear, pain, lack of respect, lack of appreciation, etc. Anger is an adaptive response to threats; it inspires powerful and sometimes aggressive feelings to trigger the fight or flight modes. Anger can be unpredictable and -if left untamed- could affect your quality of work and social life. Its accompanied by physiological and biological changes. The way we are brought up and our cultural background affect the way we express anger. You can be angry about thoughts, people or events.Topics covered in this e-course:What is really behind anger: Triggers and signsHow the brain worksCognitive distortionsThe cycle of acceptanceWhen is anger considered to be a problem and how far could it affect general health?The Johari modelAssertive management and setting realistic boundariesProblem solving techniquesUsing clean languageFitting in the transactional analysis modeAcknowledging psychological contractsBreathing and deep relaxation techniquesCognitive restructuring techniquesThe rational emotive theoryEmotional freedom techniquesIntegrated personal developmentHumor and energy psychologyWhen is it healthy to be angryGlassers Choice TheoryFishers process of personal changeSelf-help script for anger management
