Remain in control when stress threatens with this proven 8-week program from the creators of the internationally acclaimed Lifeskills workshops

For the last three decades, Dr. Redford Williams has been at the forefront of research in behavioral medicine. The New York Times has described him as an authority "widely acknowledged as the guru of anger management." Drawing on his groundbreaking research, he and his wife and coauthor, Dr. Virginia Williams, wrote Anger Kills, the bestselling book that is regarded as the seminal work on the potent effects negative emotions have on the body.

Now these renowned self-help experts have taken their strategies to a new level with this easy-to-follow program that teaches readers how to handle all types of situations, from overbearing colleagues to a lack of communication at home to irritating situations like delayed flights.

Remarkably, this book's program works equally for "hot reactors," who have a tendency to blow up when things don't go their way, and "cool reactors," who are more likely to swallow their emotions. Hot reactors will learn to stop and think before their anger explodes, and cool reactors will learn how to acknowledge their emotions and assert themselves―leading both to be more in control of their lives.

About the Author:

REDFORD WILLIAMS, MD, is director of the Behavioral Medicine Research Center, professor of psychology, professor of psychiatry, and professor of medicine at Duke University.

VIRGINIA WILLIAMS, PhD, is president of Williams Lifeskills, Inc. Together the Williamses coauthored Anger Kills and Lifeskills and developed the Lifeskills workshops. They live outside of Durham, North Carolina.

From Publishers Weekly:

Redford Williams, who teaches psychology and medicine at Duke, has researched the link between hostility and life-threatening illness. In an earlier book, Anger Kills, he and his wife, Virginia, began to write about anger management, and this follow-up presents a comprehensive guide to emotional management, with a solid eight-week program to teach readers how to process negative emotions in healthy ways. The program applies not only to those who actively express anger but to "passive" individuals who "stuff" anger away. The program begins with teaching readers how to identify what they're feeling (e.g., why do you overeat?) and ends with learning to have a more positive outlook. The book also takes a close look at how similar situations are approached emotionally by different people to get far different results. In Control gives the reader simple quizzes as well as time to think through and follow focused exercises week by week. 10 b&w illus. (Mar.)
