We’ve spent the series so far talking about what it looks like when we lose control. Join us for our last rage of this special series on Losing Control where we are joined once again by anger and aggression researcher Dr. Brad Bushman. We take this episode to talk about what you can do when you feel like you’re losing your cool. More specifically, we share some advice on not only strategies to use to cool off, but also how anger can be prosocial.
