Product Description

Review

“Sensible, practical, and exceedingly useful!.”
Claire Rayner

From the Back Cover

Anger is a very natural response to hurt, frustration, bereavement, loss or threat.

But it can also be a damaging response, and unless we deal with it effectively the results can be highly destructive. We might take our feelings out on people we love, we may feel violent or we may turn our anger in on ourselves – feel regret, guilt, bitterness or even apathy. Because this is an emotion we often try to hide from ourselves, as well as from others; often we are not aware of quite how deep our anger runs.

In this fully revised and updated edition of her easy-to-read classic, Gael Lindenfield explains:
• The effects of anger on our bodies and minds
• Strategies for preventing the build-up of frustration
• How to deal assertively with problems of buried and misdirected anger
• How to keep calm when faced with outbursts

'Sensible, practical and exceedingly useful.'

Ever felt that you let anger get the better of you? Shouted at the kids or blown your lid in the supermarket for no real reason? Or do you bite your tongue and let people get away with murder because you are afraid to speak up? These are common reactions to frustration for lots of people. We can't express our anger appropriately so often end up feeling resentful and unable to make any positive changes.
Gael Lindenfield in her book 'Managing Anger' takes these everyday situations and looks at how and why we behave as we do. She believes that anger can be a positive force for change in our lives if we have the strategies to work with it.
As she says, "while I am not suggesting that a change in the way in which we handle anger can be a cure all for the personal and social evils of the world, I do believe that it could dramatically improve very many peoples' ability to cope with them".
To help bring about this change Lindenfield has developed a model she calls Assertive Anger:
Assertive
Non-violent
Goal directed
Ethical
Responsible
By following this model we can learn to deal with frustration and threat in a positive way. Making situations work for us and our communities.
Lindenfield begins by examining how we form our attitudes to anger. How our childhood, culture and environmental factors impact on us. We all have triggers for our emotions. By being able to identify our triggers, we can begin to work on the way we feel about the past allowing us to move on and develop new positive behaviour for the future.
As well as the theory, there are many excellent strategies for dealing with both your own and others' anger. The chapter on assertiveness is invaluable, as are the role-plays, which are clearly described and practical.

This book approaches the subject with a coherent persepctive and give the reader something to grasp and work with.
The consequences of unresolved anger can be long and far reaching if not understood and at least attmpts made to deal with it.
By using this book the reader will be able to identify and have tools to work with to effectively approach the issues of anger.

Very useful self help reading, had to read it twice before found some of the exercises helpful. The author's use of exclamation marks was to overpowering, sometimes even in the wrong context that didn't even need it but not a criticism just an observation!!

Some helpful exercises herein got me over a stressful 'hump' and an angry period at work. I've long since put the book away but I can still recall a couple of the exercises and they help from time to time. I found it helpful to read this in conjunction with the book on anger and irritation in the 'Overcoming' series and mix and match the exercises to suit my needs and my situation.
