Through a very personal case study, this presentation will explore the counterintuitive joy of rage. It will examine anger as a by-product of dysfunctional attachment and as a trauma response. We will discuss early behavioural issues that act as red flags for an anger addiction. It will also explore anger as a more global social pandemic. We will see how anger is spreading across mediums such as social media and investigate the psychological impact fear-inducing headlines can have on us. We will also learn how the media manipulates our anger and how, in this age of increasing ego-vulnerability, we perceive threats everywhere - some which are real, and others which are made up. Anger then becomes the shield with which we protect and arm ourselves.
1. Delegates will learn strategies and skills for managing anger.
2. Attendees will learn where we can implement personal strategies, globally.
3. Attendees will gain a better understanding of media manipulation and how to distinguish between the truth and the lies.
