Managing Anger Through The Lens of Attachment Theory
Are you frustrated and angry, feeling alone and unheard in your relationship? Afraid of what to do or say, fearing that whatever you do might take you past a point of no return? Do you fight your partner’s loudness with silence?
In Over the Walls of Anger, Susan Armitage offers a well-designed and thoughtful focus upon anger as a psychological as well as behavioral pattern. One main achievement is that she makes attachment theory relevant to anger management clients and counselors. Most of her chapters begin with a couple quarreling, then describes the problematic emotional cycle that has arisen between them, goes on to describe how such cycles are developed and maintained, and then concludes with sensible questions designed to help readers address the personal relevance of that chapter’s topic. More specific advice is offered near the conclusion of the book, adding impact to the volume. I highly recommend this book for couples working together on their anger issues as well as individuals concerned about how their anger affects their intimate relationships.
