    Styles of AngerThere are three styles of anger: expressing, suppressing and internalizing.

    Expressing

    The healthy expression of anger is assertive and respectful. The unhealthy expression is aggressive, violent and harmful to one's self or others.

    Suppressing

    The suppression of anger is holding onto it until it slowly builds up to the point of explosion.

    Internalizing

    Internalizing is similar to suppressing, except it may result in self-destructive behaviors or negative side effects. These behaviors may include, overeating, eating disorders, alcohol or drug use, depression, elevated blood pressure, ulcers, headaches and muscle aches.
