This is an excellent step-by-step introduction to anger management.The authors debunk popular myths and provide an explanation of the physiology of anger.
With straightforward explanations and simple, practical exercises, the reader can learn to turn around trigger thoughts, including some common distortions (e.g. the global thoughts “you always…”), reduce stress, identify and stop the escalation of anger, change self-talk, and use effective problem-solving communication.This is a good read for individuals considering the damage their anger is causing to their health and self-esteem, their relationships, or their career. It is also a valuable complement to cognitive- behavioral psychotherapy (CBT).
