This Is Your Brain on Anger: What it is, How to Deal

by Faith G. Harper, PhD, LPC-S, ACS, ACN

If you've ever been so pissed off that you did things that you regretted, or ruined your own day and some other people's too... or if you feel angry every. single. day. and it's affecting your health and sleep and love of life... or if you've got very good reasons to be mad as hell, and you aren't going to take it anymore... Dr Faith will explain what the hell is going on in your brain and how to retrain yourself to deal with enraging situations more productively and without torpedoing your relationships. This is Your Brain on Anger gives you a short, heady dose of neuroscience and cultural explanation of what anger is and what it does to you, and then gives you a handy four-step checklist to help you deal with maddening situations after (or before) the fact... and then also some solid tips for dealing with anger while it's immediately overwhelming you... and finally a story about a productive use of anger. Because your brain actually knows what it's doing, and anger can be a good thing sometimes—just not if it's ruining your life.

Note: This zine was expanded to become a chapter in Dr. Faith's book Unfuck Your Brain; and in 2019 it'll be expanded even more to become a book in its own right.

    "This zine hopes it can aid you in your quest for inner peace.
    As for me...
    Me down here in the streets where me anger keeps me warm like an electric blanket."

    I took the Anger book to Sunday School in response to a friend's question. The class liked it so well several people asked to go through Anxiety the next week. We made Dr Faith's books a study series!

    I like how she combines real neuroscience with practical advice anyone can understand. She doesn't say it will be easy, but she makes things simple.
