Featuring stories that ring true for many modern women, Every Woman’s Guide to Managing Your Anger offers practical, professional advice on how to maximize joy, peace and happiness in our lives. Dr. Gregg Jantz wrote this new self-help book based on his experiences counseling women for a quarter century at The Center for Counseling and Health Resources Inc. In addition to anger issues, The Center helps women (and men) work through anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addiction and more.
As the founder of The Center, Dr. Jantz oversees all aspects of the counseling process and has witnessed firsthand how prevalent anger is among women, and how much of a negative impact it is having on their lives.
“Today’s woman feels light-years away from the contented, put-together woman she wants to be,” says Dr. Jantz. “And she’s not too happy about it.” So in Every Woman’s Guide to Managing Your Anger, Dr. Jantz and co-author Ann McMurray hope to help women who may otherwise carry their anger with them for the rest of their lives.
Every Woman’s Guide to Managing Your Anger will introduce you to women like:
- Janice, a middle manager asked to accept secretarial duties that she thought she’d left behind long ago. She’s angry about it, but doesn’t let it show. Not at work anyway. Despite her best efforts, Janice’s anger often erupts at home with her family.
- Amy, a divorced mother who resents the lack of responsibility that her ex-husband is accepting for their three young children’s lives. Much like Janice, the anger she feels toward her husband all too often ends up directed at the kids.
- Marilyn, a woman whose picture-perfect life is hidden in the shadows of the constant criticism she directs toward everyone with whom she comes in contact. From family members and friends, to customer service representatives, no one is exempt from Marilyn’s negative critiques and unsolicited advice.
In addition to personal stories that readers can relate to, Dr. Jantz also includes exercises in the book through which women can identify their own unique anger issues. “The injuries and pain of the past weaken the ability to bounce back from frustrating, difficult or stressful situations,” says Dr. Jantz. He has numerous suggestions for helping women work through this pain, including prayer. “A biblically based response to anger has the power to overcome the rage, bitterness, pain, and unhappiness in your life.”
