The Root of People's Problems: How to Make it Disappear
The single most destructive element in life is anger. Anger destroys relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children, brothers and sisters, kids in school, and adults in the workplace. Prolonged anger literally poisons our bodies. It leads to depression and violence. Virtually everyone needing psychological or psychiatric help is intensely angry with one or more people in their lives. Prisons are full of individuals who could not control their anger. Even most mental health professionals have relationships marred by anger.

Despite the crucial importance of anger, few mental health professionals deal with it directly. We tend to think of anger as a byproduct of problems. We believe that if we help our clients resolve their problems, the anger will disappear. Unfortunately, this approach often results in prolonged therapy with uncertain results. Even most structured anger control programs can take a long time and have poor results. This recording shows you that the truth is the other way around: anger is the major cause of people's problems, and controlling it causes problems to disappear. Izzy Kalman's Anger Control Made Easy provides an evidence-based, yet uniquely entertaining approach that can dramatically increase your ability to help not only your clients with anger management, but yourself in the process.

This recording opens your eyes to simple, yet profound ideas and approaches, such as The Golden Rule, Freedom of Speech, and even humor. Life as you know it may never be the same again.
