Road rage: it’s a feeling we all know too well. But does it have more serious mental health implications? If so, what are they? Leading clinical psychologist Dr. Seth Meyers walks us through why some people experience road rage, the psychology behind road rage, and how to prevent it.
- What causes “road rage” psychologically (other than other people being on the road)?
- Can excessive road rage be a sign of an actual mental disorder?
- Might people with extreme road rage be suffering from some kind of unrelated mental health issue?
- Are certain types of people more prone to road rage than others?
- Most people “feel” road rage but only some people act on it. Why do some people keep it to themselves and some people actually act on it?
- Are there any long-term negative mental health effects of road rage?
- What techniques can someone use to stay calm when they start to feel road rage coming on?
