The Anger Workbook by Les Carter & Frank Minirth



The Anger Workbook by Les Carter and Frank MinirthThe Anger Workbook: An Interactive Guide to Anger Management


We all get angry – it’s part of the spectrum of human emotion that God has given us.  Even the Bible tells us that there is a healthy anger (Eph 4:26) and an unhealthy anger (Eph 4:31). It’s how we handle the anger that we have that is appropriate or not. For some people though, anger may not be that simple; for example, they may not even know what the root issue is that is causing their anger. This is where The Anger Workbook by Les Carter, Ph.D. and Frank Minirth, M.D. comes in to help people out.

Their easy to use workbook breaks anger management into thirteen steps, starting with learning to recognize what anger. Sometimes anger can be disguised as depression. Sometimes it’s a volcano of rage that bubbles over. Carter and Minirth explore all those areas and more. Using case histories, psychological reasoning put in laymen’s terms and illustrations and guidance from the Bible, Carter and Minirth help the reader to explore, accept, let go and more of their anger.

I found Carter and Minirth’s workbook to be very easy to use, very non-judgmental as it acted as a gentle guide in exploring my anger emotions. The workbook is filled with questions as you go along each chapter and I found that these questions really made me think and search deep inside myself for answers. I would highly recommend this workbook to any person who has ever struggled with anger or controlling their emotions in general.
