Has your relationship become a battlefield? Does your partner's sarcasm, irritability, or hostility make you wonder where the closeness and trust have gone—and how much more you can take? If anger is poisoning your relationship, this book offers a powerful antidote. Anger expert W. Robert Nay provides clear-cut, practical techniques for responding productively to inappropriate expressions of anger. Learn how anger gains a foothold in a couple's life, why your usual responses may unwittingly reward bad behavior, and how to stand up for yourself in ways that promote lasting change. Self-quizzes and step-by-step suggestions for dealing with different types of angry behavior are illustrated with true-to-life examples. Grounded in psychological science, the strategies in this book are simple yet surprisingly effective. Try them for yourself—and for the person you love. See also Dr. Nay's Taking Charge of Anger, Second Edition, which helps you understand and manage destructive anger in all its forms, and The Anger Management Workbook: Use the STOP Method to Replace Destructive Responses with Constructive Behavior, which builds core anger management skills using interactive exercises.

The book shows a scripted conversation between a counsellor and a client over six counselling sessions. It is based on real-life counselling sessions. The themes are based on real events that occurred during counselling sessions with various clients who were struggling to control their feelings of irritability and anger towards their partner. Before coming to the counselling sessions, the clients were experiencing increasing resentment towards their partner which was threatening the strength and happiness of their relationship. There are brief counsellor notes throughout each session to help the reader understand why the counsellor asked particular questions or responded in a certain way. The therapy used is called 'Solution Focused Therapy'. It is a brief therapy that is designed to focus on the resources of the client. It focuses on strengths and aims to help the client become aware of their own solutions through a specific set of questions. It encourages the client to think about the future and only uses the past as a means to identify what works and does not work for the client. About the Author Louise Palmer is a Psychologist and Solution Focused Therapist who has worked in the psychological field for over 10 years. She has delivered solution focused therapy sessions to a wide range of clients who have had various concerns such as anxiety, depression, stress, eating disorders, relationship problems, health problems and addictions.
