What happens to a person's brain when they become angry? Anger is an instinctive yet complex emotional reaction that affects everyone differently. People whose brains are wired for anger may become angry at a moment's notice, act impulsively on their anger, regret their behavior afterwards, and fly into dangerous rages that leave them feeling out of control. Calming the Angry Brain examines how the limbic system affects the way people process anger and why some people are predisposed to anger, while others are able to remain calm in aggravating situations. Readers learn how to change their patterns of thinking so that they become less likely to experience extreme levels of anger and more in control of their behavior when they do become angry. By understanding the six natural stages of emotionality: system activation, modulation, planning, taking emotion-influenced action, evaluation, and system deactivation, readers can come to terms with possible problems at each stage of processing. The book then offers guidance for taking charge of anger and learning new ways to rewire the brain so that anger is measured and manageable, not destructive.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A powerful application of recent brain science to the field of anger management. Get this book and pay attention to what it says."
--Rich Pfeiffer, MDiv, PhD, director of Growth Central


""Healing the Angry Brain" is as thorough a work on the neurobiology of anger as you will find anywhere. In addition to a comprehensive description of the biological and psychological functions of anger, it gives lots of practical advice on regulating anger in the context of a full and healthy emotional life."
--Steven Stosny, PhD, author of "Love without Hurt, How Improve Your Marriage without Talking about It, " and "Treating Attachment Abuse"


"Psychotherapists are always asking neuroscientists, "How does understanding the brain help me to help my clients?" In "Healing the Angry Brain", Ronald Potter-Efron provides an answer. Through a combination of clinical expertise and clear scientific information, he guides the reader to a better understanding of anger while providing a roadmap to relational and inner peace."
--Lou Cozolino, professor of psychology at Pepperdine University
