Here’s a preview of what we’ll discuss and share durign this session:
The Nature of Anger
Anger is “an emotional state that varies in intensity from mild irritation to intense fury and rage,” according to Charles Spielberger, PhD, a psychologist who specializes in the study of anger. Like other emotions, it is accompanied by physiological and biological changes; when you get angry, your heart rate and blood pressure go up, as do the levels of your energy hormones, adrenaline, and noradrenaline.
Anger and Bitterness
“This one is pretty hard for me. I can tell we are going to be hitting a wave of PTSD when my husband starts talking smack about everyone and anyone around him. He will say he hates everyone, except me, the kids and our parents and siblings.
He will spout off horrible, mean things about people he doesn’t even know and it’s hard to deal with. His rants are pretty illogical and he usually has no basis for his anger. Sometimes, it gets so bad I cannot stand to be around him because it’s so depressing to hear someone talk about how the whole world sucks.
That’s probably the hardest symptom to deal with. I don’t want my kids to pick up on his bitterness. I don’t want my kids to be jaded like he is.”
“Hubs will get really frustrated with me and the kids. He’ll get easily annoyed and he will yell at the kids or start swearing. When he gets like this, I usually take the kids out of the situation. I try and go out for the day to visit my mom and dad or take the kids to the zoo or something … just to give him time to calm down and cool off.”
