Part I: What is Anger? > How Does Anger Work?

Anger involves complex feelings. It is made up of different reactions that cause us to be irritated, annoyed, furious, frustrated, enraged and even hurt.

Our response to anger involves our body, our behaviors and our thought process.

There are many reasons why each of us responds differently to the events in our lives.
