The ability for young children to understanding their emotions and how to react in certain situations can greatly increase their chance of expressing themselves in an appropriate manner.
In modern times, the concept of controlling anger has translated into anger management
programs based on the research of psychologists. Classical psychotherapy based anger management interventions originated in the 1970s. Success in treating anxiety with Cognitive behavioral
therapy (CBT) interventions developed to

Research shown people with a learning disability tend to express anger and aggression to even those who help them on a daily basis. Adults with intellectual disabilities are at high risk of acting aggressive and being send to clinics due to their actions.
PTDS is a symptom that tends to lead people to act very violent and aggressive. People with this condition are mentally fragile and people who interact with them need to be cautious. This group can benefit from extended CBT dealing with anger management issues.
People with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) tend to display very aggressive and dangerous actions. A study in the Brain Injury (journal) showed that one way to prevent such actions is a community based treatment of people with TBI.
Studies from 1979-2010, young school aged children who were identified as portraying aggressive personalities were given several different anger management classes. Overall, results showed slightly positive results for children receiving the classes (less aggression). The courses aimed at reducing negative emotions in the children and trying to help them with self-control.
There is no statistical information that shows people who substance abuse also have high rates of aggressive actions.
However, researchers believe this is a group of people that should be studied due to their questionable decision-making and typically unstable mental health.
Substance abusers could benefit from an anger management class not only in preventing potential aggression, but potentially to understand that they need to slowly work off the drugs in order to achieve a better mental state.
Writing down their negative feelings and anger and taking time to cool down instead of lashing out and doing aggressive actions in person.

What is Anger?
Anger is "an emotional state that varies in intensity from mild irritation to intense fury and rage" - Charles Spielberger.
Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy human emotion.
Like other emotions, it is accompanied by physiological and biological changes; when you get angry, your heart rate and blood pressure go up, as do the levels of our energy hormones, adrenaline, and noradrenaline.
What angry can be?
But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems - problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life.
And it can make you feel as though you're at the mercy of an
unpredictable and powerful emotion.
In the instinctive.....
Natural way to express anger is to respond aggressively.
Anger is natural adaptive response to threats; it inspires powerful, often aggressive, feelings and behaviors, which allow us to fight and to defend ourselves when we are attacked.
A certain amount of anger, therefore is necessary to our survival.
What the cause?
Anger can be caused by both external and internal events.
You could be angry at a specific person (such as a coworker or supervisor) or event (a traffic jam, a canceled flight), or your anger could be caused by worrying or brooding about your personal problems.
Memories of traumatic or enraging events can also trigger angry feelings.
