Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
A major revision of the best-selling classic-a quarter of a million copies sold. When Anger Hurts draws on the latest research on dealing with anger, including new chapters on emergency anger control, the interpersonal and physiological costs of anger, road rage, and parental anger and includes techniques for creating an anger-coping plan and anger inoculation. While anger can serve vital functions to protect and defend the integrity of the self, it is too frequently an instrument that destroys and abuses. Hostile reactions often lead to guilt, regret, and alienation; uncontrolled anger exacts a heavy price from the mind and body. This book is a complete, step-by-step guide to changing habitual anger-generating thoughts while developing healthier, more effective ways of meeting your needs. This book guides you through the process of creating your own personal intervention strategy for controlling angry impulses. Learn about the two-stage model of anger production. Find out how to recognize pre-existing stress-producing conditions that often lead to angry moments without directly causing them. When you work through the exercises and lessons in this book, you will immediately see positive change in every aspect of your life.
