Background: Anger leads to behaviors that bring great damages. Anger management helps people to learn how to be calm and feel no anger before the start it.

Objectives: The purpose of this study was to determine the state of anger control skills in students at School of Health, Iran University of Medical Sciences, Iran.

Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 166 students in 2015. The sampling method was stratified random sampling. The data gathering tool was a standard questionnaire for anger control skills (PACT). Data were entered in SPSS software version 22 and analyzed using descriptive (frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation) and analytical (chi-squared, exact Fisher’s and Pearson’s correlation coefficient tests) statistics.

Results: Mean of age in these students was 27 years, 72.3% were single, 62.7% were female, 84.3% were undergraduate and had master of sciences, and 60.2% lived in dormitory. Mean of scores of anger control skills was moderate. While 62% of them had good status in humor skills, the status of other anger control skills were moderate. There was a significant relationship between the score of anger control skills and student accommodation (P = 0.004) and mean of course marks (P = 0.014). It means that anger control skills in dormitory students and students with lower average of course marks were better.

Discussion and Conclusion: Anger control skills were not desirable in the studied population and promotion interventions in this field should be provided. Regarding the correlation between the scores of anger control sub-skills, improving each of these skills can be effective on promoting another one. Educational planning in each of these skills is suggested.

Keywords: Anger control skills, College students.
