Serbs Set Up "Rage Room" For Unleashing Anger

"Dozens have come so far," Pausic said, "people of all ages" â¿¿ adding that it's also popular among women. He said that visitors usually need about five minutes to destroy everything inside.

While it may be an easy way to let off steam, experts warn that projects like this are no replacement for anger management therapy.

Sanja Marjanovic, a psychologist from Belgrade, said that modern science looks for ways to control frustrations before they explode into full-blown rage. She explained that "venting anger does give you an immediate sense of relief but in the long run, one becomes accustomed to feeling angry."

"In a stressful situation, one can count to ten, or take calm, deep breaths," she said. "It's much more useful to practice yoga."

Pausic said each visitor must sign a document that includes a clause saying the Rage Room does not aspire to offer medical assistance.

And, after the session is over, customers are given a CD that includes information about professional therapists and how to contact them.

For his part, Duvnjak found therapeutic value in the Rage Room. He said the session helped to take off some of the pressure that had built up in his studies â¿¿ adding that many of his friends felt the same way.

"This is better than getting into a fight," he concluded.
