Anger Education is Not Available: Even though studies show that anger is the most common of human emotions, our society lacks even the most basic education about anger.

With education, it can be channeled in healthy, constructive ways. Just as the energy from dynamite can be used to build a new road, it can also be used to blow up an office building full of people.
