Anger management

The term anger management commonly refers to a system of psychological therapeutic techniques and exercises by which one with excessive or uncontrollable anger can control or reduce the triggers, degrees, and effects of an angered emotional state.

Courses in anger management are sometimes mandated to violent criminals by a legal system.

Typical anger management "techniques" are the use of deep breathing and meditation as a mean to relaxation.

As the issue of anger varies from person to person, the treatments are designed to be personal to the individual.
