The term “anger management” may be relatively new in the scope of human history but the concept of controlling one’s anger toward a productive end is as old as Aristotle. He is often quoted as saying, “Anyone can become angry, that is easy…but to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way…this is not easy”. Not easy for sure, but Aristotle sums up nicely the end goal of a successful anger management program.
