More Than Anger Management-A Way to a Better Life

If anger is harming your health and hurting the people you love and care about the most, you need to make the decision to get your anger under control. You've stopped the seething and shouting, but that's just like putting a lid on a boiling pot. What you need to do is replace your anger with calm and happiness. How can you build on your angry experiences to help you become a better person?

This unique book offers a way. An integration of Buddhist thinking, mindfulness practice, and cognitive-behavioral psychology, it sets out a straightforward program of exercises and advice that can help you move through anger to a richer, more meaningful way of living your life. And it does this with humor, candor, and wit. With this book, a little introspection, and a lot of practice, you'll be able to exchange your anger for compassion, your hot temper for mindfulness, and your self-loathing for self-awareness.

    Learn simple and effective ways to:
  • Take charge of your behavior and your life
  • Develop richer, more meaningful relationships
  • Express the love and compassion already in your heart
  • Put aside misconceptions and accept yourself
  • Forgive grievances and express gratitude

About the Author:

C. Peter Bankart, PhD, has been actively engaged in his profession as a psychologist since 1971. He received his PhD from Dartmouth College in experimental personality research with a specialty in behavior therapy, and took a job at Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana where he is a senior member of the faculty. He has lived in Japan for several years, taught at Waseda University in Tokyo, and has authored a textbook on the history of psychotherapy, Talking Cures, which was published by Brooks/Cole in 1997. In addition to teaching psychology, Bankart directed the student counseling service at Wabash, and has worked as a staff psychologist in a variety of mental health facilities in the United States and Japan.

David B. Wexler, PhD, is a clinical psychologist in San Diego specializing in the treatment of relationships in conflict and the executive director of the Relationship Training Institute. He has trained professionals internationally on his pioneering ideas for relationship development and the prevention and treatment of domestic violence. Wexler is the author of When Good Men Behave Badly and Is He Depressed or What?, and he has been featured on The Dr. Phil Show and The Today Show; in the Washington Post, O Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Redbook, and Men's Health; and on dozens of radio and TV programs throughout North America. His work helps to educate the public about relationships in conflict and conflict-resolutions strategies.
