Overview

This book is written for those who chronically avoid conflict and confrontation, and suffer from this avoidance in occupational settings, personal relationships, and self esteem. Clinical psychologist, John R. Lynch, Ph.D., teaches readers healthy and effective anger management skills, which enable them to avoid destructive reactions to situations that involve anger. Written by the psychologist who coined the term, this is the only book in the market specifically for "anger avoiders." This is the only book that shows you how suppressing anger can be detrimental to your personal relationships and your career and reveals how low self-esteem, aches and pains, and depression can actually be symptoms of anger avoidance. This is the most recent anger title from the publisher of the best-selling books on anger: When Anger Hurts, The Anger Control Workbook, Angry All the Time, and Letting Go of Anger.
