It is bad enough when a pandemic causes enormous stress on employees, whether working in the office under safety guidelines or working through the obstacles of home, but it when the basic stresses of the job bury employees, it can even become worse. Employers need to be able to identify issues for employees by making work and the work place as least stressful as possible. Much of this has to do with how employers interact with their employees and respect them, as well as supplying them with the supplies and time they need to succeed.
The article, “How to deal with frustrated employees” by Nurhurda Sayed looks at how employees can help frustrated employees succeed. The article states,
“So what can leaders do to manage these angry employees? If a blow out happens during a meeting, Micha suggested that leaders give some extra attention to the worker and say, “hey, I would like to know more about the root cause of your emotions. I’m happy to hear you out”. This personal conversation can be held after the team meeting and you can still retain a professional tone during the chat.”

Basic anger management techniques are important especially in stressed areas. Covid-19 enraged areas over mask use is a big issue between those who wear and those who do not. Anger and fights and sometimes death occur in these confrontations. This is why it is so important to utilize anger management in these cases.
The article, “Managing Anger: Real Steps To Stop The COVID Rage” by Elizabeth Broadbent reviews how we can better control our anger. She states,
“Managing anger means noticing and naming it in the moment, and when I see people moving into my space or not wearing a mask, I feel angry. I am personally offended. I can name it now. I don’t excuse it or hide it or justify it. I feel angry. And I also recognize that it’s okay to be angry. Anger is a feeling. We can control how we act. We can’t control how we feel. In other words, I can name my feeling. But that feeling doesn’t give me a right to act out.”

Anxiety and anger are tied closely together. Anxiety can lead to multiple issues for an individual. Anger is a result of anxiety. Lack of proper coping and allowing anxiety to overtake oneself can put a person into a fight or flight situation where emotions and anger can become unleashed.
Dr Conte discusses the importance of dealing with anxiety and how to better cope with it. Dr Conte in his video, “How to Dealk with Anxiety” takes a closer look into controlling anxiety and anger. He states,
“Anxiety can be crippling; so in this video, I offer some practical ways to deal with it. Obviously there is more to discuss about anxiety than what I cover in this brief video, which is why my plan is to continue to make more videos to help however I can. Sending everyone who watches this much”
Domestic Violence is a growing crime in America. Thousands of cases emerge each year with many cases of the repeat offending nature. The danger to the victim can escalate in time. Unfortunately, many victims report once it is too late and their life is in true danger.
Domestic Violence while usually considered a crime against women, can also be a crime against men as well. It is also more than merely bruising and beating but any push, shove or slap. Furthermore, even if physical abuse does not occur, mental abuse can be as long term damaging. Individuals need to spot the signs of abuse and break it before they become a statistic themselves.
The article, “Domestic violence: Misconceptions, Myths and Mistakes” by Alderman Rupa Blackwell states,
“I’m a survivor of domestic violence, and I get really nervous when people begin to talk about domestic violence around me. Not because I’m afraid to share my story or because I’m still triggered by the years of abuse, but because I know they will likely share some misconception about the cycle of violence.”
Anger Management can help prevent domestic violence, but one should always be seek professional help before determining if a situation is now safe or not. Please also review our Anger Management Program
Anger can get the best of anyone. Unfortunately, even if no physical violence ensures, words can cause emotional damage that cannot be repaired. It is important in whatever relationship we are in with others to conduct ourselves with kindness and patience even when angry. We want to avoid saying something we may not mean.
In doing so, sometimes, we need to walk away. We cannot always be a perfect saint and smile when angry and it is critical and even in some cases healthy to walk away. In doing so, one needs to communicate frustration in a healthy way. One needs to communicate that they are very angry and wish to remove oneself from the situation. This allows one to calm down before speaking.
The article, “Anger Management: What to Say When You’re Too Angry to Talk ” by Jeremy Brown lists a variety of phrases one can use to remove oneself from an angry situation and avoid saying something one may later regret. He states,
“So, the question becomes, when you become so angry that you can’t process emotions any more, how can you manage it? And what do you say when you’re too angry to talk? It comes down to understanding, managing, and explaining your emotions.”
It is extremely important to control rage and anger. Too many times, we can hurt someone simply with our words. These words can deeply hurt someone or escalate a situation. We end up later regretting what was said and then have to seek forgiveness. Instead of hurting others with words, use words that remove oneself from the situation. It is better to politely excuse oneself and discuss the situation later than to say something one may forever regret.

Good article about Lent and Anger and how we can better control our emotions, not only for our health and the safety of others but also for our own spiritual development
The article, 5 Ways to reject unhealthy anger this Lent, by Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble states
“Anger is all around us these days. The emotion of anger in itself is not a bad thing. Thomas Aquinas went so far as to say that not responding to something with anger can be a vice because sometimes reason demands anger at injustice and sin.”
