Description


Books on anger, by and large, have been written by men for men who express their anger in an outward and explosive way. But women usually express anger through a range of behaviors, from explosive outbursts to quiet seething rage. If you're a woman struggling with anger, this workbook is designed to help you develop skills and strategies for expressing your anger in constructive ways.

No matter what your style of anger is, this workbook can help you identify what triggers your anger. Then, through a series of interactive, relational exercises, you'll learn ways to cope with angry feelings.
