Description - Working with Anger by Peter Cummins

Client anger is a perennial problem for a range of professionals working in clinical settings, because it comprises of both difficult-to-cope-with behaviour and is associated with a number of different clinical problems. Working with Anger provides an alternative strategy to the most popular cognitive behavioural approach, which is of interest to all clinicians who are struggling to find suitable techniques for anger management. It opens with a broad introduction, showing how constructivist approaches differ from cbt approaches and explains how anger is tackled from a personal construct psychology perspective. It gives practical advice, case study examples, the theoretical underpinning, and methods of evaluation to enable clinicians to set up, run and evaluate their own anger management programs using the constructivist approach.
