Our goal in developing this website is to share the
knowledge we have gained about anger over the years through this medium and through our connections with the
people who visit us here. This website is dedicated to
making a meaningful difference in peoples' lives. We clearly
know and appreciate the difference that education and tools
can make when it comes to handling anger more effectively.
This website and our services are offered to you, your
families, and your organizations in the hopes that together
we can make this a more caring, loving, and peaceful world
for all. Thanks for visiting us and we are very interested
in your comments, reactions, and questions to anything
that you see here.
Our world, in many ways, has become a dangerous and
violent place. We hear about disrespect, control, prejudice,
hatred, abuse, and violence almost everywhere: in our homes
and schools, at our workplaces, on our freeways, and in
our communities. There is just too much hurtful and destructive
anger all around us. But it doesn't have to be this way.
These attitudes and behaviors are, in reality, distortions
and perversions of anger.
Anger is a fact of life, a normal and natural emotion
that everyone experiences at times. We are not going
to eliminate anger from the planet. Anger is a part of
being human. Depending on how it is handled, anger can
build self-confidence and self-esteem and enhance your
relationships with others or it can create guilt and shame
and destroy trust and intimacy. It really has to do with
how you experience and express it. When expressions of
anger become abrasive, punishing, shaming, vengeful, and
abusive or when you don't express anger at all, you begin
to take a toll on your emotional, physical, relationship,
and spiritual well-being. If you truly want to change this
part of yourself, you need to first understand what
anger is (and what it isn't) and then learn more effective
ways to handle anger whenever it does arise.
This website, first developed in 2000, the start
of the new millenium, is our attempt to help people
who want to change the way that they experience and express
their anger. Together, the two of us have over
fifty-five years of experience counseling
individuals, couples, families, and groups; writing
books and articles; and presenting
workshops and seminars to community groups and professional
audiences. We have touched the lives of thousands in our
endeavors up to this point. We hope to touch thousands
