Book News Annotation:

Nay (Georgetown U.) has written two textbooks and taught mental health professionals how to run anger-management training with clients, but decided he wanted to share his insights directly with people who have trouble controlling their anger. He walks readers through six steps, with practice exercises and forms that can be used to record progress.

Synopsis:

If anger is starting to rule your life, or someone else has urged you to "get a grip--or else," anger expert Dr. Robert Nay has a six-step plan that can help you regain control, even in the most stressful, hot-button situations. This proven program shows you how to stand up for yourself without losing your temper. Put a lid on destructive anger once and for all with fine-tuned strategies that help you:

*Figure out which of the five "faces of anger" are a problem for you, from passive-aggression to all-out rage.

*Recognize the early warning signs of anger in your physical sensations and thoughts.

*Identify and change unrealistic expectations you have for yourself and other people.

*Communicate effectively when differences arise--with your spouse, family members, colleagues, or others.

*Practice anger-management skills alone and in public until they're second nature.

For anyone who needs help with anger, Dr. Nay's program is effective, easy to learn, and--unlike other methods--brings about lasting change.

See also Dr. Nay's Anger Management Workbook: Use the STOP Method to Replace Destructive Responses with Constructive Behavior, which helps you build core anger management skills using interactive exercises, and Overcoming Anger in Your Relationship: How to Break the Cycle of Arguments, Put-Downs, and Stony Silences.
