Overview

We live in a crazy world, so much so that you'd have to be crazy to stay sane! Most people feel frequently overwhelmed by stress. Some of us have the inner resources and the support of other people, and so can cope reasonably well, most of the time. Others among us are not so lucky. For months or even years at a time, people are suffering, at the end of their tether, buckling under the load. There are many people who react with depression, a life-sapping, draining, self-destructive mood that poisons everything. Others suffer anxiety focused on a variety of issues. And there are those who respond by hitting out at the world, and often at the people they love, the ones they least want to hurt. Of course, most sufferers of one of these reactions frequently feel one or both of the others, in an endless destructive cycle. Fortunately, help is available. This little book summarizes the results of a great deal of scientific investigation, carried out all over the world, and the author's own extensive clinical experience. Dr. Bob Rich is an award-winning writer as well as a psychologist, so you know the book will be readable. You will be inspired to work on your own problems, entertained by the many case examples from Bob's practice, and empowered to use the clearly described techniques.

Editorial Reviews

Beyond Trauma: conversations on traumatic incident reduction - Victor R. Volkman
I would strongly recommend ANGER AND ANXIETY to anyone who has a history of unexplained anger or overreactions to situations as well as anybody who finds more of their life occupied by worry and fear than they are happy with.
editor-in-chief of Absolute Write - Jenna Glatzer
The book gave me a lot of food for thought, and after reading it, I feel better equipped to deal with my own anxiety. I'm eager to try out the methods Rich detailed. Anger and Anxiety is reader-friendly and doesn't get bogged down with psychological jargon. I highly recommend it for anyone who is committed to change his or her negative thought patterns and learn how to manage anger or anxiety.
author of Faces of Fear - Christine Spindler
I warmly recommend ANGER AND ANXIETY to everyone suffering from uncontrolled anger, panic attacks and anxiety. Even those who cope perfectly with their lives can benefit, by enhancing their personal potential and their happiness. Being relaxed and in control is always a good choice, isn't it?
author of the Anxiety Disorder Handbook - Mary Ellen Popkin
As someone who has suffered from anxiety disorder for 19 years I found this book a must read. Dr. Rich's easy to read insights on the mind makes this a book for the lay person as well as the professional. He intertwines his professional knowledge with clear cut examples for change and recovery.

    Real help for Anxiety & Anger found here

    Dr. Rich uses clear, real-life examples to move from the abstract concepts of fight-or-flight, phobias, worry, arousal, and anger to help you understand how your own life may be impacted by these phenomena. In addition, he ties concrete physical symptoms to these areas that you may never have suspected were linked. Understanding what is our normal and natural heritage as human beings is one key to regaining your power over these phenomena. It also allows complex cause-and-effect relationships such as Pavlovian conditioning to be readily comprehensible. For example, I had never really considered the possible explanation that some phobias are passed unintentionally from parent to child. The method of behavioral modelling clearly explains the mechanics of how this can be produced. True to the Cognitive Behavioral Technique, the text emphasizes that you may not be able to change what you are thinking or feeling but you can change what you are doing... and the rest will follow. Fortunately, each chapter ends with a self-directed survey to increase awareness of anger and anxiety in your life. Part II of the book details specific actions you can take to conquer anger and anxiety. Wolpe's method of progressive muscular relaxation is developed in sufficient detail for anyone to be able to apply it. Though a useful skill in itself, muscular relaxation increases sensitivity to tension and therefore supplies an early-warning system for anxiety and anger. This also works in conjunction with systematic desensitization through imaginary and real experiences. When confronted by a distressing scenario, the client applies learned relaxation techniques and thereby scores a victory over phobia. Although 'Anger and Anxiety: Be In Charge of Your Emotions and Control Phobias' is first and foremost a self-help book, the author does recognize when situations require outside help. Chapter 6, 'Help from Those Who Care' is a frank discussion about the limits of self-help and when to go for outside assistance. The book wraps with a grab-bag of CBT tools and tricks you can use to empower your life: thought-stopping, narrative therapy, role-changing, and a quick glimpse into Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy techniques. I would strongly recommend 'Anger and Anxiety' to anyone who has a history of unexplained anger or overreactions to situations as well as anybody who finds more of their life occupied by worry and fear than they are happy with.
