Anger gets a bad rap! Most folks feel anger is a negative emotion that leads to frustration, yelling, and break-ups of relationships. We all feel uncomfortable during confrontations. However, I have come to see anger as a very beneficial source of life-changing energy. I find that confrontation, if handled properly, is the very foundation of increased healthy intimacy and without it relationships break down to meaningless co-existence. This presentation is sharing my own personal thoughts, client experiences, and object lessons used to give insight and coping skills to clients, and to ourselves as well.
