The book

My book Anger, Rage and Relationship presents a radically new way to understand and work with anger and rage issues. Taking a relational approach to anger and rage, the book presents a positive view of human nature, supported by recent research findings and illustrated with case studies, with individuals trusted to be essentially pro-social.

“This has become one of my most treasured clinical works. It is unlike any other book I’ve read on the subject of anger. The author’s radically different theories and applications are brilliant and profound, yet easy and exciting to grasp; her writing is crisp, clear, to the point and yet underscored by great depth of personal empathy and compassion. Simply, this work is profound and unlike anything I’ve ever encountered in all my years of practice, and I cannot recommend it highly enough.” David Yonkin, New York.

Rather than promoting strategies and techniques for eradicating anger, Sue Parker Hall, puts forward an approach which seeks to not only work with, but to differentiate between, anger and rage. Anger and rage are constructed as entirely different phenomena, originating at different developmental stages, having different functions and relational needs and requiring different aspects of relationship in the therapeutic process.

Further areas of discussion include:

  • the positive aspects of anger

  • practitioner protection

  • the therapeutic implications of working with both anger and rage

This book will provide invaluable reading for practitioners dealing with anger management issues and anger and rage in the therapeutic setting, as well as being of great interest to all counsellors and therapists in related fields of anger management, anger control and rage issues.
