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
