: In the book Shutter Island, they use the phrase "anger management", but the book is set in 1954. Did people really use that phrase back then?

I don't think I heard it until decades later. Psychological therapy, self-help groups, and such weren't popular in the 1950s. Maybe in Vienna. Not in the U.S. ~rb
