Teens become angry for numerous reasons and express these feelings in a variety of ways, but they all have in common the struggle of experiencing a painful emotion and not knowing how to manage it. Unacceptable expressions of anger turns into rage and can have serious consequences for troubled teens, fortunately most of them have the capacity to learn better ways of coping.
Hiding underneath the rage are often painful emotions such as hurt, frustration or sadness that troubled teens try to avoid or are not aware they are feeling.
