Abstract
Background: Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. However, when it gets out of control, it can become destructive. Uncontrollable anger can lead to serious problems at work and in personal relationships. A correlational study was conducted on anger and psychological well-being of working adults in a selected institute of Dehradun.

Objective: The main aim was to identify the risk population and explore the relationship between anger and psychological well-being of working adults.

Materials and Methods: Quantitative survey approach correlational design was used in the study. Quota sampling technique was used to select the study subjects. Data were collected from 210 working adults using sociodemographic performa, clinical anger assessment scale, and General Health Questionnaire (GHQ).

Result: The result showed that the mean anger score was 9.02 6.64 and the range was 0-32. More than one-fourth of the study participants (76%) reported minimal clinical anger. The mean GHQ score was 56.6 9.6 and the range was 3483.The lowest level of general health quality was found in the area of social dysfunction (21.6 3.8).The result shows that anger was negatively correlated with psychological well-being (r = 0.4, P ≤ 0.01). Domain-wise analysis showed that the anger was correlated with somatic symptoms, anxiety, insomnia, and depression.

Conclusion: Anger and psychological well-being is negatively correlated. As anger increases, the probability of somatic symptoms, depression, and anxiety increases.

Key words: Anger; Psychological Well-being; Working Adults; Occupational Health
