ACT on Life Not on Anger: The New Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Guide to Problem Anger by Matthew McKay,Steven C. Hayes,Georg H. Eifert



From the best-selling author of When Anger Hurts, Matthew McKay, and ACT-experts Georg Eifert and John Forsyth, comes the first book to adapt acceptance and commitment therapy principles to dealing with anger. It teaches readers how to change their relationship to anger by accepting rather than resisting angry feelings and learning to make values-based responses to provocation.

If you've tried to control problem anger before with little success, this book offers you a fundamentally new approach and new hope. Instead of struggling even harder to manage or eliminate your anger, you can stop anger feelings from determining who you are and how you live your life. Based on a revolutionary psychological approach called acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), the techniques in ACT on Life Not on Anger can help you let go of anger and start living your life to the fullest

If you?d tried to control problem anger before with little success, this book offers you a new approach to try. Instead of asking you to struggle even harder with. This book will help you release from the anger that's ruining your life. Many of the patients I've worked with have let their anger destroy their lives. And then the harder they fight to control their anger, THE MORE ANGRY THEY GET! It's easy to see how this can quickly become a self-destructive cycle.

Drop the Rope in Your Tug-of-War with Anger

If you've tried to control problem anger before with little success, this book offers you a fundamentally new approach and new hope. Instead of struggling even harder to manage or eliminate your anger, you can stop anger feelings from determining who you are and how you live your life. Based on a revolutionary psychological approach called acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), the techniques in ACT on Life Not on Anger can help you let go of anger and start living your life to the fullest.

Your path begins as you learn to accept your angry feelings as they occur, without judging or trying to manage them. Then, using techniques based in mindfulness practice, you'll discover how to observe your feelings of anger without acting on them. Value-identification exercises help you figure out what truly matters to you so that you can commit to short- and long-term goals that turn your values into reality. In the process, anger will lose power over your life-and, amazingly, you'll gain control over your life by simply letting go of your angry feelings.

There were some things I hung onto since childhood. I really don't want to go into the personal details on here but I'll tell you that I used to get pissed off about some things that I wasn't really aware of. This book helped me pretty much eliminate it. What a tremendous skill to have. People who have anger that they have a hard time controlling are usually called jerks and are not thought of to have hurt and pain. We think of these people as someone who's "got issues." Well, that's cool, but if you want to really care about people and want to help someone who has anger they're holding onto from their past, be gentle with them and give them an opportunity to see for themselves what they are doing so they can HAVE the opportunity to change. Feeling judged by someone you love for having a hard time expressing your anger is the last thing an angry person needs. It will only compel them to behave that way even MORE out of defensiveness. Besides that, give them this book. If they are truly open to it...or YOU are the one who has the anger and you are willing to read this and follow it AS IT TELLS YOU TO...then I promise you will see results. I did and it's made a world of difference in my familial relationships and friendships. I am more capable of trusting in others because I followed the instruction in this book.

I am a License Professional Counselor and utilize ACT in my practice. I have worked through this book with two of my clients and the feedback I get is nothing but positive. It is written in a non-clinical way and my clients have really learned a lot through reading and putting exercises into practice. I highly recommend this book to any professional or nonprofessional and I will continue to use it in my practice.

I love this book, and reccomend everyone and anyone read this as a part of your personal development journey. I continue to use the techniques described when I find myself not thinking as cool-headed as i would like, even years later than when I started reading it. If you do decide to order, commit to ACTUALLY doing the exercises. You will get little or no benefit from reading without doing the work. I found it important to cover sections very slowly so as not to overwhelm myself, but forging ahead when necessary.
Sorryyy
I have several other ACT books which have been helpful to me. None of them, however, addressed issues with anger. I have had significant issues over the past year of so with anger at work situations. This book has some techniques for dealing with anger that I found quite helpful. Basically, it talks about not trying to get rid of your anger - but instead allowing your anger to exist while controlling your actions so as to live by your values.

LOVE IT! I also purchased the book dealing with anxiety by the same authors. One of the best new ways to deal with anger and anxiety than any CBT method. You need to know about "mindfulness" first....in my opinion, it will help.

This is a great book. Stop trying to "control" your anger instead accept it and then choose how you want to respond according to your values. This book will help you develop the tools you need to change how you respond to the things that bother you.
