5. Rumination at Work: The Quieter Anger.

Anger can mean yelling, throwing objects, or a bright red face: or,
anger can dig its way under your skin and fester – this fester might be
one way to describe ruminating.  According to research in 2011, this
quieter rumination can be just as detrimental to men’s health.

In 2011, researchers from Missouri State University and the University
of Missouri, including Dana Haggard with the first,  examined how “co-
rumination” in the workplace, that is, the rumination of all parties
involved in a conflict, as well as the “presence of abusive supervision”
influences positive or negative outcomes in employees.  147 adults
from various ages and occupations answered questionnaires, which
revealed some interesting results for men.  Apparently, when male
employees are subjected to “high abusive supervision,” co-rumination
was associated with “reduced negative effects”; however, when men
were subjected to “low abusive supervision,” co-rumination was
“related to negative outcomes for men.”

This is not to say that if you are a supervisor, you should switch from
“low abusive supervision” to “high” in order to keep your male
employees happier; rather, these findings reveal why some men may
react negatively to certain work place environments.  If you find
yourself angry at work more than you’d like to be, consider assessing
the type of supervision you’re under, and whether or not that affects
your mood.

Angry All the Time? --- It Could Be Your Genes

You can be mad at your Mom for giving you small lips, and mad at your
Dad for that hair starting to sprout out of your ears. But did you know
that you could also be mad at them for being mad?

In 2010, a team of experts from both the University of Connecticut and
the University of Otago in New Zealand, including Jonathan Covault
with the Department of Psychiatry at the first,  looked into how anger
may manifest – genetically.  The team examined the “serotonin 1B
receptor gene” in over 360 university students and found that while
“associations with anger and hostility were not found in women,”
certain modulations involving this-said gene “may have important
implications for aggression-related phenotypes among young men.”

Learning that anger may be genetic isn’t, of course, a way to treat that
anger.  If it seems to you that anger runs in the family (and usually this
isn’t so hard to figure out) consider seeking help sooner rather than

Anger ---It Could be the Reason You Hurt All Over.

Ever feel like everything hurts but you can’t find the cause?  Ever felt
pain on various parts of your body was real, but that no one believed
you?  Here’s some news:  it could be that you’re not imagining things,
but that you have somatization disorder.

Somatization disorder is the long-term condition of physical symptoms
in various parts of the body, but to which no direct cause can be
found.  Somatization disorder usually begins before 30, and while it is
more common in women it also occurs in men.

In 2011, Liang Liu with the Tongii University Medical School in
Shanghai, along with colleagues from the same university and
institutions in the states,  tested whether “proneness to anger” is
related to “insecurity in relationships and somatization.”  101 couples
completed questionnaires, which revealed that “men who are
insecurely attached are more prone to experience anger that in turn
fosters somatization.”

Bottom line?  If you want to stop mysteriously hurting all over,
consider seeking help for anger management  -- it might also make you
more secure with your significant other.

Intermittent Explosive Disorder: A Link to Childhood Trauma?

Do you know someone who rages for no reason? Someone who just
"goes off"? They could have a condition  called "Intermittent Explosive

Intermittent Explosive Disorder is just what it sounds like: episodes of
unwarranted anger that could result in attacking others and their
possessions.  The National Institute of Mental Health estimates that up
to 16 million Americans are affected by Intermittent Explosive Disorder
(IED).  Unfortunately, these 16 million people with IED may be
predisposed towards depression, anxiety, and alcohol or drug abuse
resulting from the condition.   The good news is that researchers are
hard at work digging into IED, in hopes of helping out those affected.

In 2012, for example, researchers from Boston University and the
University of New South Wales, including Angela Nickerson with the
Psychotherapy and Emotional Research Laboratory at the first,  
investigated what IED has to do with trauma. Over 4,800 patients who
were “trauma-exposed” adults participated in a survey, the results of
which indicated that “IED was associated with greater trauma
exposure, PTSD and generalized anxiety disorder” as well as “first
exposure to traumatic events in childhood.”

If you suffered any kind of trauma, particularly in your childhood, and
find yourself exploding into anger (and if you’re worried about
harming your loved ones or their property), consider asking your
doctor about IED.  Getting started on therapy to deal with that trauma
may be a step towards a healthier, happier outlook.
