Learn to mitigate your anger and take charge of your life

Everyone experiences anger from time to time, but when left unchecked or unbridled, this normal human emotion can become disruptive and damage relationships. If you're ready to stop letting anger control your life, turn to Anger Management For Dummies. This trusted source gives you tools to identify the source of your anger--whether it's fear, depression, anxiety, or stress--and offers ways to deal with the "flight or fight" instinct that anger produces, allowing you to release yourself and your life from its grip.

Anger Management For Dummies outlines specific anger management methods, skills, and exercises that you can use to take control of your feelings and actions. It provides:
* Information on the different kinds of rage, including road, air, and office
* A look at Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED) and how to manage aggression
* Advice on how to deal with angry children and teens
* Details on how anger is related to the "fight, flight, or freeze" response of the nervous system and prepares you to fight (for good or bad)

Overcoming anger issues requires support, mindfulness, and a bit of practice--all of which this book provides. When you're ready to face your triggers and change your perspective on the emotions of anger or rage, let Anger Management For Dummies give you the helping hand you need.
