Managing Anger Through The Lens of Attachment Theory
What if I were to tell you that much of your anger happens because when you are hurt, you fear disconnection and therefore want to draw your partner closer for comfort?
Although an individual may seek help with controlling their anger, if that person is in a relationship, the issue is almost always best addressed in couples therapy.
