Ves our attention and respect women still learn to silence our anger to deny it entirely or to vent it in a way that leaves us feeling helpless and powerless In this. I think this author produced a well thought out book It focuses on helping women move away from unproductive anger and learning to be angry with positive effective resultsThere is a section on women who don t allow themselves to be angry that I didn t spend much time on because never felt I wasn t allowed to be angry There is another portion on de selfing which involves a person malefemale allowing another in their relationship to walk all over them and I didn t spent much time on this either A case was presented in which a woman was not allowed to attend the author s anger workshop because her husband said no The author presented several real cases then proceeded to explain how she helped the person or persons work through their anger issues There was a couple that had problems with the husbands parents and the husband did not deal with the issue while the wife became and irate Interesting way to handle it however I am a firm believer that it is the responsibility of the person related to handle hisher family not the spouse There was a young new mother who had repeated conflicts with her over controlling mother that escalated when the two mom s parenting styles clashed I m not sure I agree with how that was handled either There was a couple that the wife thought their infant was not developing properly and the husband blew off her thoughts which caused the wife to focus intently on her points and the husband to back further away This went on for almost a year I thought she made a good point in that when one pushes hard in a certain direction the other can often push even harder the opposite directionhowever it bugged me that she suggested that if the woman had waited until the man was receptive like after snuggling ie sex then approached him with her concerns he may have acted differently Yikes timing is important but dangThere was another couple that complained that the man was uninvolved in the family and the woman was too emotional and too involved in the children s lives I did not care for her resolution here and thought she missed the boat completely by not suggesting the couple were and had grown apart and that they needed to work on their relationship and focus on reconnecting As it was the husband dreaded coming home for fear she would hound him about her day In any event the author does open the door of thought to help guide disruptive anger For me there was not much that I haven t already figured out in my almost 50 years of age but for someone younger or still struggling there may be some good suggestions found in this book about focusing on productive anger I hoped it offered tidbits on helping bitter angry people work through their issues and that wasn t between the pages of this read One thing worth mentioning that I had not realized There isn t one unflattering term used to describe men who vent their anger at women Women are called bitches shrews man haters witches etc while men are called bastards son of a bitch words that still place the blame on his mother Well how about that
