9780806516707: How To Keep People From Pushing Your Buttons

We all know that life can get tough. Many companies are down-sizing and letting workers go, leaving those with jobs uneasy about their future. Many families are under the added stress of divorce or remarriage - and newly blended families seldom look like the Brady Bunch! On top of these pressures, technology is speeding up the pace of life, confronting each of us with hundreds of tasks that all seemingly need to get done today. With all this stress, pressure, uncertainty, and worry, there are may things and many people out there who can potentially set you off, drive you crazy, or push your buttons. This book provides specific, realistic ways to keep people and events from pushing your buttons. It does so without resorting to theoretical jargon, "new age" psychology, or positive-thinking quick fixes. You will find here a set of specific skills you can use to help you react more effectively in the face of potential button-pushers.

About the Author:

Albert Ellis, Ph.D. founded Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), the pioneering form of the modern Cognitive Behavior therapies. In a 1982 professional survey, Dr. Ellis was ranked as the second most influential psychotherapist in history. His name is a staple among psychologists, students, and historians around the world. He published over seven hundred articles and more than sixty books on psychotherapy, marital and family therapy, and sex therapy. Until his death in 2007, Dr. Ellis served as President Emeritus of the Albert Ellis Institute in New York, which provides professional training programs and psychotherapy to individuals, families and groups.

Arthur Lange, Ed.D. is the coauthor of Responsible Assertive Behavior and The Assertive Option, and has given thousands of presentations using the concepts embodied in this book.

From Booklist:

Don't get mad or get even--get placid using these authors' techniques for defusing difficult situations. Ellis, the "grandfather of Cognitive Behavior Therapy," and Lange explain how to defuse your own anger, guilt, or depression, how to control your reactions when people persist in "pushing your buttons." The skills defined here can be used in work, home, or social situations. The chapters are filled with work sheets to help readers define the onset of inappropriate responses and practice alternative, healthier behaviors or responses. Factual, practical, and feasible. Denise Perry Donavin
