Transforming Anger and Conflict

Anybody 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 – that is …not easy. Aristotle

Anger is an important signal of information that deserves our respect and attention. Anger expressed in unhealthy ways can sever connections and trigger fear, mistrust, and pain. Unhealthy expressions of anger toward self and others prolong conflict, demean others, and can create a retaliatory spiral of responses.  Anger that is transformed into healthy expression and receptivity can repair connections, build new connections, and deepen compassion and love for self and others.
