Do you have trouble controlling your anger? Have you lost friends, loved ones, or even found yourself in trouble with the law because you regularly lose your temper? If you have tried regular anger management therapy but haven’t been able to make any real, lasting changes in how you deal with your emotions, you should know that there are other treatment options available that can help.
With the Mind-Body Workbook for Anger, physician Stanley Block and Carolyn Bryant Block present their third workbook utilizing the innovative and successful mind-body bridging therapy. Proven-effective in both clinical and research settings, the easy-to-use self-help exercises in this book will teach you to stop identifying with angry thoughts and feelings, while allowing your body to relax and let go of unconscious tension. In this natural resting state, body and mind are both able to naturally heal and let go of habitual anger issues.
If you are looking for something new, beyond typical anger management classes, to help get your emotions under control, this book will give you the skills you need to make lasting change. To find out more about mind-body bridging, visit bridgingforlife.com
“This mind-body workbook for anger sets the standard for the treatment the entire spectrum of anger management issues, including court mandated treatment for domestic violence offenders. Mind-body bridging is a set of powerful techniques that will help one to rest the system in one’s brain (the I-System) that is responsible for unmanaged anger. I have been in practice twenty years and have found that the tools in this workbook are far superior, better accepted, and more quickly effective than any that I have used with court-ordered domestic violence offenders. Long-term follow-up of recidivism showed rates of only eight percent. Further, I have used and continue to use mind-body bridging in my own life with transformational results.”

“Stan and Carolyn have done it again. Mind-Body Workbook for Anger is a user-friendly, easy-to-apply solution to the problem of anger management. In my long career in treating domestic violence offenders, no other method or technique can compare with it. This book should be on top of the list for both therapists and clients.”

“As a psychotherapist, I have been actively involved with domestic violence coalitions and treatment agencies. Anger-management treatment programs based on this Mind-Body Workbook for Anger dramatically reduce dropout rates and recidivism in comparison with conventional treatment methods. In fact, with the favorable results of a large randomized control trial awaiting publication, mind-body bridging is en route to becoming the first evidenced-based treatment and best practice for domestic violence offenders.”
—Isaac Phillips, MSW, LCSW, executive director of Equinox Counseling Services; co-chair of the Salt Lake Area Domestic Violence Coalition; and member of the Utah Council for Domestic Violence Perpetrator Treatment
“Research I conducted with domestic violence offenders using mind-body bridging as an intervention found the offenders experienced less stress; gained greater access to problem-solving abilities; and improved their relationships with partners, children, and co-workers. The mind-body bridging approach helped these at-risk individuals avoid reoffending largely by sharpening ability to recognize internal triggers. In my experience, the mind-body bridging techniques used in the Mind-Body Workbook for Anger are successful because they are practical, straightforward, and allow individuals to see results immediately.”
