Excerpts

Anger, a natural human emotion, becomes a problem only when you are unable to manage it without hurting yourself or others, or damaging things. It’s a strong feeling evoked by perceived injury that often comes with a desire to take revenge or get back at someone. The tendency of anger to veer out of control is clearly shown by its Latin root word: angere, to strangle. Anger that you don’t handle in a healthy way strangles, suppresses, restricts, and harms those around you, and prevents you from living your best life. The angry outburst may range from speaking cross words, raising your voice, and losing your temper to verbal abuse, bullying, and violent actions. The English language has a series of words used to describe these angry mind-body states, ranging from adaptive to maladaptive: annoyed, displeased, irritated, peeved, cross, bitter, resentful, stirred up, worked up, teed off, heated up, fuming, ranting, raving, agitated, roaring, and violent.

Since anger is a natural, adaptive human emotion, why is anger so hard to manage? Maybe you have been doing your best, but nothing you’ve tried has lasted very long. You may even have the false belief that something is wrong with you because of your inability to control your anger. What you haven’t yet discovered is that you are fully equipped to moderate and control your anger.

Reviews

“Stan and Carolyn have done it again. Mind-Body Workbook for Anger is a user-friendly, easy-to-apply solution to the problem of anger management. In my long career in treating domestic violence offenders, no other method or technique can compare with it. This book should be on top of the list for both therapists and clients.”
