The Healthy Expressions of Anger
A self-study Anger Education workbook. Only a small percentage of people need Anger Management Training, but virtually anyone could benefit from Anger Education. That’s because everyone at times gets angry, frustrated, upset, disappointed etc. Or may have to deal with someone who does experience those feelings.
Anger is Energy: Even though studies show that anger is the most common of human emotions, our society lacks even the most basic education about anger and the energy that anger (automatically) brings with it. What do you do with that energy? With education, it can be channeled in healthy, constructive ways. Without new knowledge, that energy might be used in habitual, unhealthy ways.
Multiple Ways to Use: This self-study workbook provides you with new knowledge and a better understanding of anger, plus tools for using it in a constructive manner. In order to gain more insight about anger, it is not necessary that you complete the simple exercises in this workbook. However, if you put the extra effort into completing the exercises, you will be rewarded with a much deeper understanding of this vitally important subject.
Learn Together: If you want the best possible learning experience, find a study-partner (a relative or friend who also wants more understanding about anger, or wants to help you in your learning experience). A counselor or life coach can also be your study-partner. As you read together, you and your study-partner will also complete the same exercises in the workbook. There are two of each exercise for that purpose.
The Anger 101 Project
Anger 101 is a project my partners, Kim Humphrey, Paul Krauss and I are currently developing. Anger 101 will be an update and upgrade to SMARTS-Training (Self Motivated Anger Release Tools and Strategies), an Anger Management/Conflict Resolution training I developed for the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center in Phoenix, AZ in 1993. They are still using that training today.
