Faculty note: Prof. Ryan Martin featured in anger article
Prof. Ryan Martin (psychology) was recently quoted in Choosing Therapy, an online mental health company. In an article on Men & Anger, Matin is quoted regarding what this mental health issue is, and what it might look like.
“The research shows that men and women become angry at approximately the same frequency, but men tend to express their anger outwardly and in more aggressive ways (yelling, hitting, swearing). In that sense, men are more likely to have anger ‘issues’ than women are. At the same time, though, suppressing anger has consequences too (other negative emotions, stress, physical health problems, etc.).” – Dr. Ryan Martin, Professor of Psychology and Associate Dean for the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.
