Dealing with Frustration and Anger
Part of the Character Education series
At times, everyone feels angry or frustrated. When used as positive tools, these emotions can spur us to action to try to make our lives or the world better.
These feelings can also be destructive to one's health if a person gets upset too often or too strongly, and to the larger community if he or she lashes out with angry words or actions against others. ""Dealing with Frustration and Anger"" explores both the positive and negative sides of these emotions and looks at the many techniques that anger management experts suggest for handling these feelings in healthy ways.
History and current events topics covered include: the American Revolution and Civil War; the Holocaust; the Salem witch trials; the women's suffrage movement; apartheld in South Africa; modern terrorism; and, how religious differences led to the Crusades and the Protestant Reformation.
