Passive Aggressive Book Dr Andrea Brandt

8 Keys to Eliminating Passive Aggressiveness

A guide to dealing with this common and frustrating form of behavior

Many people often say “yes” to something when they’d rather say “no.” They offer cooperation through words, but reveal how they really feel through actions that contradict what they’ve said. That behavior is called passive-aggression. At its heart, passive-aggression is about being untrue to oneself, which makes it impossible to have healthy relationships with others. Passive-aggression as a communication method doesn’t make someone “bad”; it is simply a coping mechanism learned in childhood that became a hard-to-break habit. Changing passive-aggressive behavior requires knowledge, tools, and practice.

This book offers hands-on exercises and eight effective methods for transforming passive-aggression into healthy assertiveness and constructive communication.

 A Quick Peek at a Recent Review:

Hi Andrea – I am a huge fan of 8 Keys to Eliminating Passive-Aggressiveness! Thanks for writing it. I teach inmates conflict resolution and communication skills and came upon your book after completing a recent 10-session course bristling with participant’s passive-aggressive behaviors.

I have since set new standards for class behavior, addressed passive-aggressiveness head on, and have been pleasantly surprised to observe class participants call out their own poor behaviors in humorous ways! In addition, I have been able to observe and identify my own p-g behaviors allowing me to seek out new, more productive responses to conflict.

Thanks again for writing this immensely helpful book. ~ Chris

Mindful Anger by Dr. Andrea Brandt, Santa Monica therapist

Mindful Anger: A Pathway to Emotional Freedom

How to release anger and reconnect using mindfulness techniques

Most people grow up thinking anger is bad: we shouldn’t feel it, and if we do, we certainly shouldn’t show it. Unfortunately, repressing anger doesn’t make it disappear. Instead, we end up with physical and emotional ailments, addictions, self-defeating behaviors, and the very explosions we were trying to avoid.

In this book, renowned psychotherapist and anger expert Dr. Andrea Brandt reveals the merits of this misunderstood emotion and shows how mindfulness of our anger – nonjudgmentally focusing attention and awareness on it – can help us identify its cause, receive its message, and channel its energy into enhanced communication and relationships.
