'I am an angry man. The difference is I know where it comes from now, and how to deal with it. These days I don't do violent things when I get angry: I haven't done for years. Even when I did I was limited to throwing things and smashing doors, walls and other objects. But I have hurt other people in anger; some physically (in my youth), more emotionally and spiritually - and that's worse in some ways...' So begins Frank Donovan's daring and important book. Dealing With Anger is for men who get seriously angry - at home, at work, on the road, anywhere. It is for men whose anger drives them to violence, causes fear in others or just creates problems for themselves and those around them. Dealing With Anger is the outcome of twenty-five years of work by Frank Donovan on the problem of anger at both a personal and professional level. He asserts that it is men's business to face up to their anger and to change. 'Your anger is your responsibility: this book sets out to help you deal with it.' The book aims to help men solve their anger problems and eliminate the risk of anger-driven violence. It draws heavily on the experiences of many of Frank Donovan's clients in therapy. The program in Dealing With Anger focuses on emotional healing, behaviour control and practical change. The reader learns how to identify what happens in his own process of becoming angry and losing control. Proven techniques allow the reader to monitor the signs of his anger as it builds and learn how to manage it - without losing control.
