While anger can serve vital functions to protect and defend the integrity of the self, it is too frequently an instrument that destroys and abuses. This book is a complete, step-by-step guide to changing habitual anger-generating thoughts while developing healthier, more effective ways of meeting your needs.
This book guides you through the process of creating your own personal intervention strategy for controlling angry impulses. Learn about the “two-stage” model of anger production. Find out how to recognize pre-existing stress-producing conditions that often lead to angry moments without directly causing them. When you work through the exercises and lessons in this book, you will immediately see positive change in every aspect of your life.
This course is based on the book, When Anger Hurts: Quieting the Storm Within created by Matthew McKay, Ph.D., Peter D. Rogers, Ph.D., and Judith McKay, RN
