Extreme Anger

My cousin brother gets very angry for minor things and is uncontrollable and starts yelling at others. Because of this, his marriage is at stake. He is a normal person during other times. Our family wants to get him treated for this problem. But he is not ready to visit any doctor. He thinks there is no problem for him. How to convince him to get the treatment?

ask him to drink water slowly when he starts getting angry. he should have chilled water. also he could practice backward counting, its an age old method but works wonders.

Usually anger and irritability are manifestations of stress, anxiety and depression. It is important to acknowledge his emotions rather than pointing at his anger. While you appreciate his emotions, explain to him that both husband and wife by getting professional help could resolve the stress. It is important to mention that others behavior and other's life stresses also might be contributing to his anger. He is more likely to agree if it appears to him that his stress is being acknowledged. Regards
