Additional Notes

From The Publisher*We will all experience anger sometimes-it's how we deal with it that counts. Anger is one of the most challenging emotions for humans to cope with, and under its influence, we can end up behaving in ways that create great difficulties in our relationships and our lives. The Compassionate-Mind Guide to Managing Your Anger will show you how to take responsibility for your anger and your life by cultivating a new strength: the power of compassion. Based in compassion-focused therapy, these skills and techniques will help you replace angry habits, gain control of your emotions, and improve your relationships. The compassionate tools in this book will help you: - Shift from threat-driven thinking to compassionate thinking - Replace angry reactions with assertive responses - Improve your relationships with friends, coworkers, and your significant other - Cultivate compassion for yourself as you learn and grow "This innovative book teaches how to develop self-compassion so that anger can be transformed into a more peaceful state of mind." -Kristin Neff, PhD, author of Self-Compassion
