Boiling Point: The Workbook
By Jane Middelton-Moz
In the breakthrough book Boiling Point, Jane Middelton-Moz explained to readers that anger is not a negative emotion; instead it is a natural, healthy emotion that, when channeled properly, can alert us to potential problems, protect us from emotional or physical threats, set healthy limits, and mobilize us to make much-needed change. She also revealed a pervasive problem in our society: more and more individuals are internalizing their anger, which, left uncontrolled, is bursting out "sideways" in the form of road rage, depression, illness and random acts of violence.
This hands-on workbook—which can be used separately or as a companion product to the book—allows readers to learn, through exercises illustrated by thought-provoking case studies, how to sort through feelings and express anger in healthy ways instead of non-productive, harmful rage.
By completing the experiential exercises, readers will learn how to be accountable to themselves; how to effectively communicate in personal relationships and in the broader community; how to understand the roots of their anger; and how to channel their feelings in a productive manner. Ultimately, readers will discover how to create positive visions of how they want to live their lives and begin moving toward the goal of living in an emotionally healthy and balanced life.
