This book explores many popular myths about anger and includes important information, much of it new, about the causes, effects, triggers and behaviour patterns of anger and aggression: why anger is a natural 'fight of flight' response, and essential for our survival; what happens when we get angry; how excessive anger can inhibit physical and mental health, as well as general well-being; how to avoid common triggers for anger; how to predict anger outbursts in yourself and others; how venting angry feelings will not make anger go away, and could in fact increase it; and, why talking about angry feelings rarely helps - especially for men.
It also explores: the connection between anger and depression; how to inoculate yourself against stress and anger; the importance of teaching communication skills to people in order to convert anger impulses into controlled responses, particularly in children; a simple yet effective technique to use every day: the life model of effective communication; and, using body language to build rapport and lower the emotional temperature of a situation.
