Harnessing the torrent of rage and anger - ( excerpt from Chapter 1 Introduction )

Why is it you can't control your anger?

Anger is a part of the awareness and expression of our individuality. In our society individuality is highly regarded but it has to conform to limits, We are allowed to behave as individuals as long as our actions don’t place limits on the same unique freedom in others.

So too with anger. We all need anger as a survival warning for our individuality, but it shouldn’t rule us or make us need to rule others.

Anger can be a powerhouse - of the good, the bad and the ridiculous. The tyrants, the protesters and the comedians all do different things with their anger. Some peoples’ anger crushes us, others make us howl with laughter. Wrong doing, anger and resolution are the essence of many stories - the engine room of the film and television industries. But this is guided anger - anger that fits into a scheme of life that alludes to balance. And balanced is where we want to be.

Frustrations, set-backs and disappointments are an inevitable part of everyone’s life. When they occur, we may respond with anger. Anger, at it’s most fundamental, is the intense inner turmoil, heightened body tension and (often) negative, critical thoughts that flow from frustration when the path to a goal is blocked or danger threatens.

Anger can and does serve a very useful function. It is built in to our basic biology (or, in computer language, our hardware) as a signal to alert us to the need for effective action to deal with frustration or danger. Well handled, it can work to your advantage as a trigger for problem-solving behaviour.

Anger can be a torrent that sweeps them along without any sense of being able to control it. It can cause people to act in impulsive or inappropriate ways or to freeze up when action of some sort is appropriate. This program seems at first sight to be for the people who tend to overreact rather than for those who freeze up. But if you do freeze up, it can be useful for you too as it may help you to find ways to deal with your anger that don’t leave you unable to act.

Both methods of being angry, raging and freezing leave you helpless to effectively address the issues that make you angry. This is what this program will explore and change.

If your anger is like a torrent, you know from bitter experience that you can do damage to others, perhaps harming your relationships with those who matter to you, like your partner, your children or your workmates who may become scared, defiant or resentful of you. You may also damage the self-esteem of the person with whom you are angry by saying or doing demeaning and cruel things.

If your torrent of anger leaves you stranded on it’s banks and frozen into inaction you will be aware how helpless and disrespected this makes you feel. You too may feel self-disgust and loathing. One of the aims of this program is to release you to take positive action and deal with your anger in a way that respects you but does not harm the other. You will find that you will learn new and constructive ways to manage your anger and to turn it into that useful signal which I spoke of before. That’s why this program is called Harnessing the Torrent.

This program will help you to use anger as a signal, which can help you to pick the right course of action to fix the problem causing the frustration.

Sometimes this will mean finding new strategies, sometimes confronting people or negotiating with them and sometimes you will find it best to re-evaluate how realistic your goals are and, if necessary, change them. Learning to use anger as a signal to positive action is what this program is all about.
