Here is the perfect book to help anyone from 16-75 years old to beat their anger - or help anyone else to do the same. Aimed at parents, families, young adults and teachers, social and youth workers, health care professionals, managers, customer service departments, psychotherapists and counsellors - there cannot be many men or women who have not felt uncomfortable when they are angry, and wondered what to do about it.
The British Association of Anger Management (BAAM) is considered the leading specialist organization in the field. Founded by Mike Fisher in 2001, its mailing list reaches approximately 10,000 people a month and it receives enquiries from all over the world, and from all walks of life.
Beating Anger is endorsed by BAAM, and used on all its anger management courses. It explains what anger is, what triggers it, the various different types of anger - and its substitutes - how to heal emotional aggression, and the 8 Golden Rules of Anger Management.
Assists in decisions about goals, life-styles, questions to ask GuidanceCounselors, investigating interesting courses and returning to school - "SPIN-IN" not "Drop-Out"

this is more of my brain.. still on disability.
i always carry a moleskine® journal as external brain-dump.
if i don't write it down it'll roll around, uselessly. or i forget it, immediately.
this is mostly comprised of thots which i did(n't) write/share elsewhere, and perhaps should(n't) have.
there is no context. there is no clarification. there only is what there is.
it is all in how you choose to interpret what's there.
volume ii originated within 2014–2015.
chapter choices: all or subdivided.
All: the direct order it came out of my mind.
Div: the attempted categorization of this data.
now, just what am i supposed to do with these..?
– minimalism is all the rage.. especially among poor folk.
– greed requires little to no imagination. unless you intend to build an empire upon it.
– wherever you end up drawing the line is usually where the discrimination suit begins.
– when it'll go wrong only once in a million, you can guess at my odds of ‘getting lucky.’
– there's usually the right answer, the wrong answer, the safe answer, and the don't answer.
– if anything, the internet has made it far easier to actively ignore far more people, with far less effort.
– war is always profitable for the weapons-makers. same can be said for the lawyers at trial.
– if you come to feel like your life ain't fair, stop, and think of the poor polar bear.
– instant gratification is to the detriment of deeper understanding.
– subtlety too often goes underappreciated.
discordant thots, vol.i
The simple answer to this often asked question is probably yes. But the reasons lie more outside teenagers than inside. For too many teachers there can be an attitude of: "I was a teenager once, therefor I know what it is like." But we all develop in a unique time and the issues are unique to that period. Pressures differ, fears differ. There are times when schools are seen to be part of the problem rather than the solution.
'What an excellent book! 'Running A Nurturing Group' does exactly what it says in the title and much more. The layout and framework must make it one of the most accessible books ever. Every chapter states its intention, unfurls – and then is concisely summarised at the end. Then we have questionnaires, tick lists, case studies and PowerPoint presentations; just what tired teachers need to take on a new body of knowledge. There is a wonderful balance of practical suggestions and theory – at all the times you feel you are in the hands of a dedicated, researcher and practitioner.'
Jenny Mosley, Founder of Quality Circle Time
`Running a Nurture Group is a worthwhile book full of useful ideas and resources for nurture group practitioners. Simon Bishop is a skilled nurture group practitioner and he links his contemporary, practical experience to the wider range of ideas and thinking that inform and underpin nurture group work in a helpful and accessible style. I am delighted to commend this important addition to the increasing literature on nurture groups -
