Anger researcher Ryan Martin speaks to media about protests that turn violent

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – Action 2 News looked beyond the scope of a protest, learning why or even how it can sometimes go from peaceful to violent. UW-Green Bay psychology professor Ryan Martin researches and writes on healthy and unhealthy expressions of anger. “When you think about the model and why people become angry, it’s always because of a provocation, coupled with our mood at the time of that provocation, along with our interpretation of that provocation,” said Professor Martin who is also associate dean for the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences at UWGB.
