I had a problem with anger recently, and occasionally I react in the same way to criticism of even the gentlest kind. Any technique to dealing with it will be very difficult to master, there's no easy way to go about it. Do you give any kind of advice/criticism to other people? Maybe it would be easier to slow down on reaction, to stop yourself and think about it in the moment-- even if it means you have to have no immediate response or to look awkward.
Hope this helps.
