Overview

How many of us have seen relationships in our families or the families of others erupt into angry words? How many times have our teens and pre-teens slammed doors in our faces or defied us with angry words when we were trying to help? Every family knows the pain of anger, but many do not know how to work through the anger to a happy resolution. In this practical book, anger experts Drs. Les Carter and Frank Minirth-coauthors of the bestselling The Anger Workbook-show families how the "blame game" (parents blame the kids/kids blame the parents) doesn't work, and instead provide proven techniques for dealing with the root causes of anger. In a perfect blend of biblical wisdom and psychological research, they show readers how to understand what can be right about anger, distinguish between healthy and unhealthy anger, recognize how anger can be managed more successfully by controlling desires and insecurities and addressing other underlying issues, and much more. Filled with real-life examples, checklists, evaluation tools, and study questions, this valuable resource for any parent with a preteen or teenager will help parents understand and manage their children's anger -as well as their own- and show how to create harmony at home. Dr. Les Carter (Richardson, TX) is a nationally known psychotherapist at the Minirth Clinic in Richardson, Texas, where he has practiced since 1980. He has authored or coauthored 17 books including The Anger Trap (0-787-96879-X) and has been featured on hundreds of radio broadcasts across America. Dr. Frank Minirth (Richardson, TX) is President of the Minirth Clinic, which he founded in 1975. The author or coauthor of more than 50 books, he is featured on Life Perspective with Don Hawkins, a national program currently on 55 stations, and on American Family Radio, currently on 200 radio stations in America.
