“Inspiring and humble in its approach,” this book applies Buddhist philosophy to overcoming and preventing anger in our lives (Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness) Anger plagues all of us on a personal, national, and international level. Yet we see people, such as the Dalai Lama, who have faced circumstances far worse than many of us have faced—including exile, persecution, and the loss of many loved ones—but who do not burn with rage or seek revenge. How do they do it? Working with Anger presents a variety of Buddhist methods for subduing and preventing anger not by changing what is happening, but by framing it differently. No matter what our religion, learning to work with our anger is effective for everyone seeking personal happiness as well as world peace.

Understanding the roots of anger and encouraging appropriate and acceptable ways of expressing this are essential skills for anyone working with young people. Working with Anger and Young People warns against 'quick fix' solutions to dealing with anger, and draws on the author's experiences of youth counselling and training workshops to propose helpful interventions for addressing anger effectively and moving on from it. From attachment anxieties and feelings of powerlessness, to frustration at difficult family relations, Nick Luxmoore considers the common reasons for young people's anger during this difficult stage of their development. Through accounts of his work with a range of young people, he offers tried-and-tested exercises and talking points to help work through common counterproductive responses to anger such as antisocial behaviour and physical or verbal violence. Crucially, he also recognises the needs of those working with these young people with anger problems and provides advice on working safely, maintaining control and achieving job satisfaction. This sensitive, accessible book will be an informative and engaging resource for anyone working with young people with anger issues.

Client anger is a perennial problem for a range of professionals working in clinical settings. Working with Anger presents an alternative strategy to the most common approach, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), exploring instead how anger can be tackled from a personal constructivist perspective. It provides a conceptual framework and practical advice on the clinical issues of working with anger, including case study examples, service user perspective, a philosophical and developmental underpinning, and suggested ways of preventing anger development. Ways of working with anger are illustrated, including: * Group-based treatments * Individual treatment * Working with adults * Working with children and adolescents * Working with families * Gender and anger * Methods of evaluating anger programmes This practical volume will enable clinicians to set up, run and evaluate their own anger programmes using the constructivist approach. It will therefore be a valuable resource for professionals such as clinical and forensic psychologists, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, nurses and social workers.

Professionals working in a range of clinical settings are regularly called upon to work with angry clients, and they may find their skills and resources for working with this powerful emotion limited. Art Therapy and Anger demonstrates how the non-verbal medium of art therapy provides an ideal outlet for the expression of thoughts and feelings that are too complex and painful to put into words, presenting a new and practical approach to dealing with this area of need. Marian Liebmann argues that clients of all ages will benefit from the art-making process, which helps them to slow down and consider their emotions more calmly. The tangible product of their efforts allows clients to assess and react to what they have depicted, providing a lucid and safe framework for better understanding the causes and effects of their anger. This book draws together contributions from art therapists who work in a wide variety of contexts, including work with offenders, mental health clients, clients with brain injury and those with cancer, with the view of helping clients to manage their anger more constructively. This positive, practical volume will be of great interest to art therapists and students, as well as practitioners working with angry clients in various fields such as mental health, probation, counselling and medicine.
Are you tired of anger management programs that are long on theory and short on practical steps to actually manage your anger? Then this is the book you need.
Author: Marc Noblitt Ph.D.
Are you tired of anger management programs that are long on theory and short on practical steps to actually manage your anger? Then this is the book you need. Drawing on newly pioneered techniques in the burgeoning field of positive psychology, the authors share a comprehensive twelve-week anger management program. They share meaningful insights, including why it’s beneficial to transfer your desire to do something to an outside source (such as the judicial system), why choosing not to harm others makes it less likely they’ll harm you, and how cultivating a spirit of optimism can eliminate angry outbursts. They also examine myths surrounding anger, such as the idea that it is not inherited, that anger always leads to aggression, the idea that people must be aggressive to get what they want, that venting anger is always desirable, and more. The program incorporates the use of multiple anger styles, diet, yoga, and music therapy, making it easy to follow and customizable based on an individual’s needs. Whether you are running a group therapy session or working to resolve your own anger, this revolutionary program will help you achieve positive and lasting results.

Anger, Rage and Relationship presents a radically new way to understand and work with anger and rage issues. Taking a relational approach to anger and rage, the book presents a positive view of human nature, supported by recent research findings and illustrated with case studies, with individuals trusted to be essentially pro-social. Rather than promoting strategies and techniques for eradicating anger, Sue Parker Hall, puts forward an approach which seeks to not only work with, but to differentiate between, anger and rage. Anger and rage are constructed as entirely different phenomena, originating at different developmental stages, having different functions and relational needs and requiring different aspects of relationship in the therapeutic process. Further areas of discussion include: the positive aspects of anger practitioner protection the therapeutic implications of working with both anger and rage This book will provide invaluable reading for practitioners dealing with anger and rage in the therapeutic setting, as well as being of great interest to all counsellors and therapists in the related field.

Though the material in this book is best used with a certified anger management counselor, most of the worksheets are self-explanatory, and thus could be used as a self-help workbook.

Anger Management Essentials is a workbook to help people with anger issues to manage their aggressive behavior. While anger is a normal emotion, aggressive behavior is what we really want to manage since it is often emotionally or physically harmful. Why do we call it an anger management program and not aggressive management? We do so because people know to look for anger management - since the phrase has become widely recognized in our culture. Though the material in this book is best used with a certified anger management counselor, most of the worksheets are self-explanatory, and thus could be used as a self-help workbook. Many people have the misperception that an anger management program is for very angry people - ones who punch holes through walls or break items, and get into fits of rage. What may come as a surprise, however, is that anger management is helpful for many people, since we all experience moments of irritability and frustration. Additionally, anger management includes effective communication and active listening skills, both which can be used in every day life. The author, Anita Avedian, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, had a vision to design an anger management program that could be customized for every reader, focusing primarily on the areas where improvement in dealing with anger is most needed. Ms. Avedian is an authorized trainer and supervisor with the National Anger Management Association (NAMA). She has been facilitating anger management groups and individual sessions for over 15 years. Having worked with court-ordered, probation-required, partner-recommended, work-required, and self-referred individuals, she has designed a program that is helpful in these varied situations. Most anger management programs are designed to last 26 weeks, however this book provides ample tools and skills to be structured into a course up to 52 weeks long, consistent with some court orders. The content can be personalized to suit your individual needs. The workbook covers areas that both directly and indirectly impact one's anger. Stress Management, for example, is a key focus since the more stressors one has, the more likely one is to become angry. Another area covered in the workbook is Emotional Intelligence, due to the high correlation between lower emotional intelligence levels and a greater number of angry episodes. Other topics include Communication and Listening Skills, Developing Healthy Relationships and Boundaries, as well as Letting Go and Forgiveness. Anger Management Essentials is for those interested in managing aggressive behavior, and living a more fulfilling and peaceful life.
