Anger and the Change Process.
Certain major thinkers regard both change and anger as inevitable aspects of human living. A system called Re-Creative Psychology (originally conceived by Paul Frisch) addresses one way to frame anger in order to create constructive change. It is an organized system of behavior management which deals with three broad categories: self-actualization, social relationships, and spiritual well-being. Each category has a paired dimension which is the actual tool for managing anger and change effectively. In the self-actualization category, the paired dimension that leads to change is between social roles and feelings. For social relationships the paired dimension is between power and intimacy. The paired dimension for spiritual well-being is between responsibility and freedom. Anger can be a useful force to change a bad situation, but it needs a great deal of guidance to make sure it is carefully directed to reach the desired goal. (LLL)
