A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. We are a nation of plenty, of opportunity, and luxury, but we are also a nation flush with fury. Homicides, assaults, domestic abuse, youth violence, and even road rage are too common, let alone everyday outbursts of temper that harm family members, friends, peers, and co-workers. The market for anti-anger, mood-stabilizing drugs is booming, as is the market for anger management counseling and classes. What is happening? In this book, a team of experts who ve been traveling the nation presenting workshops on Rethinking Anger start by telling us this: Anger is normal; nature hardwired into our brains for protection. But here is the paradox. Anger out of control destroys, yet anger understood and controlled is a constructive force, one that can be used for creativity, change, and growth. Authors Baruch, Grotberg, and Stutman show us how to take charge of this powerful emotion, so it can be used in constructive ways, rather than destructive. Using the anger energy constructively can release creative potential and be liberating.

Critique:

"The book has universal appeal as the authors grasp the essence of anger and the creative use of the anger energy. The knowledge and experience these authors draw on is awesome!"-Nestor Suarez Ojeda, M.D. Former Official, Pan American Health Organization, PAHO, Washington, D.C. Director of International Center of Resilience, University of Lanus, Argentina

"Creative Anger is that rare book that is both systematic, straightforward, and easy to read and, at the same time, provides insights and guidance that reflects a deep understanding of the human mind and how it works. This work will help all those whose goal it is to find constructive ways to not only manage anger, but to enable this powerful emotion to fuel overall emotional growth and mental health."-Stanley I. Greenspan, M.D. Author, First Idea: How Symbols, Language and Intelligence Evolved in Early Primates and Humans.

"Creative Anger provides practical advice for using the energy and power of anger for constructive and creative outcomes. The advice and strategies contained in the book will help individuals avoid the explosive and self- destructive consequences of unbridled anger."-Deborah Prothrow-Stith, M.D. Professor of Public Health Practice, Harvard School of Public Health

"This is a highly readable, comprehensive and very useful book....It may be read passively, however, the engaging style of writing, together with numerous personal case studies, will soon get the reader involved in the process of creative anger management....This book is suitable for, and highly recommended to the general reader who would like to live a more pleasant, happy life and especially to those who are in positions that encounter numerous persons in often highly stressed situations....Understanding and putting into practice the principles outline in this book will help both themselves and others immensely." -
