"This book made me angry! Why couldn't Ms. Engel have written it years ago when it would have helped me through difficult times? Honor Your Anger is a clearly written, insightful look at a topic that concerns everyone. You can indeed learn to understand and manage your anger, and this book will show you how." -Robert Epstein, Ph.D., West Coast Editor, Psychology Today Director Emeritus, Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies University Research Professor, California School of Professional Psychology "A critical first step for people who have trouble getting in touch with their anger and expressing it in direct and appropriate ways." -Virginia Williams, Ph.D., coauthor of Anger Kills and LifeSkills Steven uses his anger to control others.Whenever things don't go his way, he explodes and everyone gives in to him. Tara has used food to avoid her feelings for so long that she doesn't know when she is angry. Marcie is afraid of her own anger and is always afraid others are going to get angry with her. Rebecca never seems to get angry, but she has her own sneaky ways of getting back at others. Do any of these people sound familiar? Do any of them sound like you? When we refuse to own our anger, or lack healthy ways of releasing it, anger can express itself in inappropriate, counterproductive ways. In this provocative, prescriptive book, noted author and psychotherapist Beverly Engel shows you how to change all that, guiding you to positive new ways to express your anger and transforming what was once a destructive force into a catalyst for positive change. PRAISE FOR BEVERLY ENGEL'S OTHER BOOKS for The Emotionally Abusive Relationship "A good, solid treatment of an insidious but all-too-common type of relationship in which the weapons are words and moods rather than the fist, but which do just as much damage. Most importantly, Ms. Engel doesn't just describe-she shows us the way out." -Susan Forward, Ph.D., author of Emotional Blackmail for Loving Him without Losing You "A powerful and practical guide. . .that every woman should read." -Barbara De Angelis, Ph.D., author of Secrets About Life Every Woman Should Know and Are You the One for Me?
