Strategies for living a crisis-free life in an imperfect world.

Anger is at the root of most of the personal dilemmas we face. Frank, personal, and pithy, this book engages readers in a no-nonsense exploration of how we can effectively reach beyond ourselves to maintain calm in the face of crisis. The objective is to distill down to fundamental aspects the universal structures that form the basis of most human problems. It is usually our emotions that interfere with making sound choices. Thus, even the most learned individuals, who “know better,” are capable of making colossally stupid errors in judgment and conduct.

Presenting a range of deescalation techniques, each chapter has been concentrated into “mini- manuals” that in their totality contain a library’s worth of material. The left side of each two-page spread describes the anger trigger and the right side of the page spread contains the anger antidote. Topics covered include emotional immaturity, the absence of thought, extremes, inertia, reactor bait, and argument traps.

About the Author:

Ian Brennan is a specialist in violence prevention with over fifteen years of experience in acute psychiatric settings, including the Betty Ford Center, Bellevue Hospital, and Stanford University. He lives in San Francisco, California.

Review:

Anger Antidotes offers invaluable strategies for identifying obstacles, making better-informed choices, and avoiding the pain of misguided decisions. Readers will learn to check anger born of frustration and fear―which can drive even the most rational person to self-defeating, self-destructive behavior―and in doing so open the door to a more productive and comfortable life.”
- Douglas Long, PhD, Executive Director, La Frontera, Tuscon, AZ

Anger Antidotes gives you exactly what the title suggests, an antidote to the poisonous effects of anger that is badly controlled or poorly expressed. Ian Brennan describes what fuels anger as he offers practical suggestions for change. This book, written with such clarity and simplicity of style, is nonetheless a thorough review of the causes of toxic anger and the antidotes to each. The clever visual presentation helps make the point. This is a perfect idea-generator for clinicians, but anyone with too much anger could pick up this easy-to-read volume and come away with serious help to stop anger from poisoning life and relationships.”
- Margaret Wehrenberg, Psy.D., author of The Anxious Brain, and The 10 Best-Ever Anxiety Management Techniques Workbook
