No Mention of Diet Made
There is currently a paragraph at the end of the article that describes how Buddhists deal with anger. This comes after a long, scientific discourse, and no other religions are mentioned. For these reasons I'm removing it, as it seems out of place. I don't see how religion ties in with anger, but if it must be mentioned a list of how all major religions view anger would seem more appropriate. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 23:07, 13 April 2008 (UTC)
Handling anger assertively
- In the section "Handling anger assertively", how can being "creative" and "spontaneously witty" be a balanced approach? The very idea of being spontaneous means there is no 'approach'.--JohnO 14:30, 27 October 2005 (UTC)
Other models section
I just removed this because it seemed to promote the ideas of individual and commercialy motivated anger management professionals without any reference to peer reviewed studies or indicators of effectiveness. This seems irresponsible for an encyclopedia. --Siobhan Hansa 12:43, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
Completely Inaccurate Information
This entire wiki is nothing but a bunch of half-witted garble. None of it makes sense, since when is insulting people passive anger? I could show each section of this thing to be inane and worthless. Someone fix this crap or do away with it.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Blarfo (talk • contribs).
- This article could definitiely do with a great deal of improvement. You are welcome and encouraged to edit constructively. --Siobhan Hansa 13:34, 8 October 2006 (UTC)
- How about a complete reset? I think it might take less wort to start from scratch than try to turn this one around. Just like the utter train wreck "dignity". — 188.8.131.52 13:14, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
I've removed this link again because it really isn't appropriate for an encyclopedia. Please don't add it back --Siobhan Hansa 14:25, 5 November 2006 (UTC)
In the passive anger section, silent treatment is mentioned as one of the types of passive anger. While the idea of being silent is truely passive, the basis for the silent treatment is to directly and immediately hurt the other person. Is this truely a passive showing of anger? I do not have a citation for this, but one would be helpful to clear up the confusion. Thanks —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 14:14, 26 March 2007 (UTC).
Agreed. This is an extremely poor article.
Following should be changed:
Depression: Description of depression is both redundant and inaccurate according to either common understanding (no references available) or clinical diagnosis (e.g. DSM-IV). Weasel words are employed e.g. 'many people believe'. Use of the phrase 'assumption' when evidence is then supplied for this statement. I would (and will, happily) argue that an assumption is an assertion without supporting evidence. Only oversleeping is referenced wrt sleep - people diagnosed as clinically depressed also undersleep - suggest replace with 'abnormal sleep patterns'.
Passive Anger: 'frigidity' - imprecise and perjorative term. 'wearing clothes associated with violent behavior' - explain and provide evidence.
Random reference to Buddhism - what?
Appears to be written from a cognitive-behavioural perspective, with no discussion of other models of anger - e.g. physiological, evolutionary.
Additional: lack of references, excessive use of declarative statements
Recommendation: Redo from start.
Most of this should be moved to the Anger article
There is some good material here but most of it is about Anger in general and not Anger Management. Much of the material should be moved to the Anger article. --Penbat (talk) 10:08, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
Very incomplete article
This article still does not cite any references. Also someone added a very poor comment at the top of the talk page with major typing errors. What's shocking is that a few web sites copied the text verbatim with it's mistakes. For example, the sentence under Courageous ended with "when a reaction ." The sentence probably needed to end with "...when a reaction is inappropriate." Let's hope someone updates the pages with references soon. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Eugenevdm (talk • contribs) 19:06, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
Suggestions for further research...
Not only do I think this page could benefit from citations and reliable information, but I also think this page would benefit from additional information about anger management such as information about anger and rage in general and when management become called for, strategies & techniques, and outcomes. This is a subject that seems very prevalent in our society and I think education is important. Kmfrance (talk) 22:34, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
