Adverse childhood experiences can affect one emotionally in so many ways. Anger is one type of common emotion that can later erupt in adulthood from these types of experiences as a child. It is important to channel this natural emotion properly and to understand why it is emerging so it does not become destructive. Anger Management Training can help in these cases. Counseling can also help to understand the root of the issue
