An aggressive anger disorder is a psychological problem for people who exhibit sporadic and unmanageable episodes of aggression, violent and destructive behaviour.
Those who have explosive outbursts of anger cannot control their emotions, and you cannot reason with a person during an episode.
I have witnessed this type of anger while I was working with clients suffering from Mental Illness, and it can be frightening.
It is often one of the symptoms
of those suffering from Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia and is known
as Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED). When working with someone who has this order, you have to be extremely careful as an episode can happen very suddenly.
Excessive angry outbursts may also be caused by neurological impairment and substance abuse, which can inhibit one's ability to resist aggressive, angry or violent impulses.Learn the symptoms of this disorder at explosive disorder symptoms.

You may wonder, "How does this happen?"
This behavior starts in childhood. Parents need to understand and consequently learn how to handle anger in their children.
Anger disorder usually results from a long-term mismanagement of anger, and is a process where the anger grows gradually over time into resentment, bitterness, hatred and destructive rage.
Since our society condemns and despises the affect of anger as negative, worthless or evil, we are partly responsible for the subsequent destruction.
And when mental health professionals continue to avoid confronting anger head on in their patients, by using drugs to behaviorally modify or cognitively rationalize anger away, they too are compounding the problem.
One way or another, we will always have to learn how to control anger as it is an archetypal human emotion.
I believe that their underlying anger must be consciously acknowledged, accepted, understood and then released, read letting go of anger. If you do not release your anger, it will be driven deeper within which will make it dangerous for your health and perhaps others too.
