By Kathy Garber, Licensed Marriage and Family TherapistStop Anger be Happy is a straightforward, user-friendly book designed to help readers learn about their anger by examining its stages. The first and most important stage of anger management is to recognize and admit having a problem with anger. The next stage in anger management is to realize which behaviors don't work and replace them with healthy new ways to create a successful life.
"Millions of people struggle with managing their anger on a daily basis and desperately seek to eliminate it from their lives," explains Garber. "The goal of anger management is not to eliminate anger entirely, but to express feelings in healthy ways that allow for desirable outcomes."
"Examining and changing your behavior is never an easy process, but with the help of STOP ANGER, BE HAPPY, you may find your transition a little easier," says Garber, who has created a website (www.AngerManagementOnline.com) where readers can read free anger management articles, talk about the book, join a discussion, take quizzes, and chat with other people about their anger in a supportive environment.
