MOST RECENT ENTRY: Handling Anger Constructivelyby Dr. Mike Atwater - Tuesday, November 15, 2011
Anger is "an emotional state that varies in intensity from mild irritation to intense fury and rage," according to Charles Spielberger, PhD, a psychologist who specializes in the study of anger. And because anger is similar to our other emotions it affects physiological changes in our blood pressure, energy hormones, etc. As Dr. Spielberger notes, “Anger is a natural, adaptive response to threats; it inspires powerful, often aggressive, feelings and behaviors, which allow us to fight and to defend ourselves when we are attacked. A certain amount of anger, therefore, is necessary to our survival.”
Writing from a Christian therapist perspective, Gary Chapman, PhD addresses such fundamental questions such as: What is the origin of anger and what is the purpose of anger from the spiritual sense in his book, Anger: Handling a Powerful Emotion in a Healthy Way. He maintains that understanding the origin of anger is essential to understanding the purpose of anger, and understanding the purpose of anger is essential to learning how to process anger in a constructive manner. Dr. Chapman uses real-life examples of improved personal health and improved relationships and goes on to offer helpful insights into why people get angry, what can be done about it and how to help others with their anger.
Because Chapman addresses anger management from a Christian therapeutic approach all Christian Social Workers, Psychologists, Family Therapists needing continuing education will find this book particularly helpful.
