RE: Psychology Addict # 56 | Reflections on Anger.

in #psychologylast year

There's a good TED talk on the topic: Why we get mad -- and why it's healthy. I wrote a short article about it back in June, here. The TED speaker tackles the subject from a different perspective, but makes some of the same points.

Hello there @remlaps,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. That is a nice, concise post you have there! I will sure watch that TED talk sooner than later over the next few days. I was mostly drawn to the part you said he discusses cognitive distortions (e.g. overgeneralizing, catastrophizing etc..). I am a big fan of the cognitive behavioural approach, and I think that sort of distorted thinking gives rise not only to anger, but to many other emotions attached to low mood :)

All the best to you.
