Everyone feels angry from time to time, and anger is a natural and normal way to respond to the things in life which frustrate us. But it is all too easy to allow feelings of anger and displeasure to color your life and your relationships with other people. Managing these feelings is important because, apart from making us difficult to live with, anger has negative effects on our blood pressure and makes us more susceptible to heart attacks, depression, anxiety and general well-being.
By picking this book up you've taken the first stride. Now, using the STEP system--a structured, CBT-based approach that delivers both support and proven techniques for managing anger--you can begin to transform your daily life. Written by an expert author with many years of clinical experience, this book will help you get a better understanding of your anger and what keeps it going, tackle negative thoughts and behavior, and progress to a healthier, happier outlook.
