A unique anger management tool for wife beaters, rageaholics and those who are in relationships with them is now available from Bayou Publishing (http://www.bayoupublishing.com).
The Anger Busting Workbook, by James A.(Jim) Baker, presents a simple, practical, measurable approach to anger management that has been acclaimed by noted psychotherapists, social workers,best selling authors, and ministers and others who work with anger addicts. Avoiding traditional treatment methods such as talk therapy or insight therapy, Baker’s program concentrates on effective methods for quickly getting angry behaviors under control. Baker is founder and president of the Anger Management Training Institute (http://www.angermanagementseminar.com), which offers a full range of classroom and online anger management training programs.
“People with chronic, medium to severe anger problems are often addicted to anger,” noted Baker. “For them, traditional counseling or group therapy, with its emphasis on talking things out or uncovering childhood issues, is usually a waste of time.”
Baker explains that this is because talking about anger eventually triggers more angry responses, setting off another anger episode. Instead, it is better to involve anger addicts in a program that focuses strictly on abstaining from behaviors that will reactivate their anger cycle. Not only is this approach effective for a large majority of clients, but it also produces results quickly. This is important for someone who is facing an ultimatum from a spouse or a judge to make changes immediately.
The book also offers solid advice and options for those who are in relationships with anger addicts.
“Spouses who love anger addicts are often pressured to simply leave the relationship,” Baker explained. “Sometimes this is necessary, but there are also many other things a spouse can and should consider before making that choice. There is a section in James Baker's workbook devoted exclusively to supporting spouses as they work through these difficult choices.”
The Anger Busting Workbook is available in bookstores throughout the country, as well as from http://www.bayoupublishing.com.
