Anger Management: The Complete Treatment Guidebook for Practitioners
The field of anger management is cluttered with fiction, myth, and wishful thinking. Here at last is a research-based and empirically validated "anger episode model." Kassinove and Tafrate offer a comprehensive program that can be implemented almost immediately; they clearly spell out how to help clients understand, manage, and prevent unhealthy anger. Features training procedures and guidelines for assessment, understanding, awareness, motivation, and relapse prevention.
