Cage the rage with clarity and confidence.
A relative makes a tactless comment about your child’s weight. The guy behind you on the expressway follows too closely. Your spouse lets the gas tank go down to empty . . . again.
Getting angry is easy. Daily irritations, frustrations, and pain poke at us. Feelings of disappointment, hurt, rejection, and embarrassment prod in us. And once the unwieldy cluster of emotions of anger are aroused, our thoughts and actions can feel out of control and impossible to manage.
Dr. Gary Chapman, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The 5 Love Languages, offers helpful—and sometimes surprising—insights into why you get angry and what you can do about it. Using real-life stories and practical principles, Chapman explains how you can channel anger in ways that are healthy and productive. You’ll also be equipped to help those you love (including your children) deal with their own anger, as well as effectively deal with those long-simmering feelings of anger toward people in your past.
Includes an assessment that will help you discover your personal propensity toward handling anger and how to effectively tame it when it arises.
