Anger is a natural human emotion that can serve important survival functions, but the excessive presence of anger and its associated negative outcomes such as aggression and violence can lead to significant interpersonal, intrapersonal, occupational, legal, familial, societal, and physical health problems. Unfortunately, clinical anger clients haven't historically been helped in truly sustainable ways, and loved ones and society at large are often left to simply watch as these individuals struggle to overcome their anger and the noxious behaviors that often emanate from this troubling condition.

Contextual Anger Regulation Therapy gives clinicians the power to change this. The book presents an exciting nine-module mindfulness and acceptance-based behavioral treatment that has been effectively utilized in formal clinical settings with clinical anger clients, including those mandated for treatment following both non-domestic and domestic violence. Treatment success has not only been demonstrated in observable ways, including significant reductions in violence recidivism and marked improvements in quality of life; it has also been seen in scientific data both in the laboratory and with large numbers of mandated clinical anger clients.

Reviews and Endorsements:

"Gardner and Moore have a wealth of clinical and research experience working with angry and aggressive people. Their book provides an invaluable resource for treating angry and aggressive clients in forensic and other organizations. Their model is based on solid theory, validated assessment strategies, and the development of functional case conceptualizations that lead to effective interventions."
—Raymond A. DiGiuseppe, PhD, professor and chairperson of the psychology department at St. John’s University and president-elect of APA’s division 29
"For practitioners who work with clients struggling with anger and aggression problems, this book presents the most up-to-date and complete description of how to apply mindfulness and acceptance-based treatments to a traditionally challenging client group. As pioneering researchers and clinicians, Gardner and Moore have succeeded in creating a comprehensive and practical guide that experienced and novice practitioners will find invaluable."
—Raymond Chip Tafrate, PhD, professor and chairperson of the department of criminology at Central Connecticut State University and coauthor of Anger Management for Everyone and Understanding Anger Disorders
