Anger Management is a very important skill for returning troops and their families, as well as those who want to help them.
In my experience, rage happens when a person had to endure situations that are unforgivable, inexcusable and that violate what he/she believes in.
I have yest to see a soldier that is not outraged about something that he saw, was exposed to , did or couldn’t prevent from happening.

Acknowledgement of what happened without judgment
Releasing the intensity with EFT tapping
Transformation of the experience, to find a deeper meaning and new purpose.
