  • EMOTION---ANGER, HAPPINESS Chapter 9
  • WHAT MAKES YOU ANGRY?
    • A List from PBS Kids:
    • Getting hurt: “Nothing makes me mad like when my sister punches me.”
    • Getting teased : “When people make fun of me, it really hurts because I’m a human being too”
    • Being embarrassed : “I get mad when a boy finds out that I like him.”
    • Being left out : “I’m angry when my friends just ditch me ...”
    • Failing or struggling with something : “I get angry when I don’t understand my homework”
    • Fighting about possessions : “When my brother takes my CD player and doesn’t even ask, it makes me really mad.”
  • REASONS TO BE ANGRY…….
    • Loss of control : “What makes me angry is when the show I want to watch is cancelled”; “I get mad when my mom forces me to go somewhere I hate.”
    • Being cheated or lied to : “It makes me mad when people are jerks and lie about something you didn’t do.”
    • Being told what to do : “Having to clean my room makes me angry.”
    • Being told “no”: “My parents sometimes dislike my friends, and I get angry that I can’t get together with them.”
    • Being bothered or annoyed : “My family makes me mad the most because sometimes they really bug me”; “It makes me angry when my sister bothers me and she doesn’t listen when I tell her to leave me alone.”

  • THOUGHTS ABOUT ANGER….
    • Anger, as any emotion, is not right or wrong; important is what you do with that emotion, which can be right, wrong, functional, dysfunctional, etc.
    • Anger is often referred to as a “secondary emotion” because it sometimes covers the primary emotion which is too uncomfortable .
  • PowerPoint Summary of: Anger

    • irritation to intense fury.
    • Can be sparked by a variety of
    • things:
    • People
    • Events
    • Memories
    • Personal Problems
    • Perceived threats may or may
    • not be real.
  • CATHARSIS HYPOTHESIS
    • “ Catharsis” means “emotional release”.
    • Hypothesis: Venting anger through action or fantasy achieves emotional release or “catharsis.”
    • However, most psychologist feel that expressing anger breeds more anger, and through reinforcement, is habit forming.
