In this article, Ed Welch argues that counseling angry people is difficult. Do you comply with their anger, agree that their reasons are justified, and join in their cause? Do you just try to get them to calm down? Do you get intimidated and tiptoe around them? Do you disagree with their anger, and give them self-management tips? Do you react, meeting force with more force, fire with more fire, anger with more anger? Welch considers those characteristics of anger that make counseling so difficult and gives a framework of attitudes and strategies for proceeding wisely.
