Whats Good About Anger? - Third edition for a general readership. This new edition teaches the importance of developing Emotional Intelligence for managing anger and achieving personal and relational goals.
New Foreword by Dr. Rich Pfeiffer, the President of the National Anger Management Association.
Most people believe that anger is a negative emotion from which no good can come. Many people think that anger should not be expressed and that such feelings are sinful. This book explores the emotion of anger and how anger- which is a part of the human experience- is a force which can be put to work for good.
Co-authors Lynette Hoy and Ted Griffin present research-based approaches to managing anger through: identification of triggers, stress management, problem-solving, assertiveness, conflict management, empathy, forgiveness, challenging false beliefs and thinking.
Chronic anger can be costly - physically, emotionally and relationally. Applying principles from the Whats Good About Anger? book can not only reduce levels of anger, but, improve effective coping behaviors to stop escalation and to resolve conflicts. Logging anger, triggering situations and applying new skills will help you more effectively control unhealthy anger responses.
