Anger Management Vital To Promoting Good Health

A recommendation of a recent mental health report from the Office of the U.S. Surgeon General (U.S. Public Health Service) is its emphasis on prevention and health promotion. The Surgeon General, in a clarion call for prevention initiatives, stresses the importance of psycho- educational interventions in the community for a range of problems. Anger Management
is one such intervention, notable for its wide applicability to a variety of constituencies for both primary and secondary prevention. For example, Anger Management techniques are needed desperately by teachers, probation officers, correctional staff, counselors, community leaders and parents.

Community sites such as schools, social service organizations, churches, libraries, and social clubs provide convenient venues for workshops and classes. For some individuals, improved health may be an important incentive for participation. A recent study at John Hopkins University found that most men who experienced heart attacks or strokes had problems managing anger. Thus unhealthy anger has serious health implications and needs to be addressed proactively.
