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.

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.
