Description

Unfortunately, readers who finally realise that they need to work on their anger don't always have the patience to page through a complicated set of exercises, or make a commitment to a lengthy process with the promise of a positive outcome somewhere down the road. Thankfully, the new model of anger control introduced in THE ANGER CONTROL WORKBOOK is based on a radically simplified approach that gives readers the tools they need to manage their anger in their day-to-day lives.
