Losing Life to Anger?


Sometimes its yelling.  Sometimes its subtle put-downs.  Sometimes its swearing. Sometimes its slamming doors.  Sometimes its worse: sometimes its hitting.  Sometimes its all of these.  Anger manifests itself differently with different people.  The most serious problems arise when a person becomes “addicted” to rage and the verbal or physical expression of rage in violence.  For those who cant seem to get their anger under control, and for those who are regularly at the receiving end of the anger, life can become unbearable.

Newton Hightower was once one of these “rageaholics.”  However, as a licensed psycho-therapist, he kept thinking that he could get control and change his behavior.  Eventually he did—and along the way, he pioneered the Recovery Method that has already helped thousands.  Now, as director of Houstons Center for Anger Resolution, Inc., Hightower offers help to more people through his book, Anger Busting 101: New ABCs for Angry Men and the Women Who Love Them (©2002/2005, www.bayoupublishing.com).

Although Hightower acknowledges that serious anger problems are not exclusively a mans problem, he has focused his work on men—and the women who love them. He has been pleased to discover that there are many men who sincerely want to stop their fault-finding, sarcasm, arguing, self-justification, rage and violence. “There are men who do not want to be divorced and lose their families,” Hightower points out.  “They want to be able to say, like I have for the last 10 years, I am happily married and my life is good.”

“Anger Busting 101 is a highly practical and easy-to-follow guide for managing anger problems.… Straightforward and possible to use on ones own.… Recommended.”
 ~ Library Journal
 
Excerpt in New Man, Jan/Feb 2002 
------

Those who think Hightowers approach will be to take a “psychoarchaeological” expedition back to childhood to discover and piece together the various elements that may be causing an anger problem will be wrong. That may be helpful for some—or it may be a way they can avoid changing angry behavior.  Hightower admits that he worries about new clients who tell him, “I know I need to work through issues that might take a few years.”  By that time they may be fired, divorced, in prison or dead if they cant change their angry ways sooner.  He also knows from the thousands of men he has worked with that with the right techniques, people can change right now.

Donald S. Williamson, Ph.D., former president of The American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, points out in the books foreword: “There is no hope for the rageaholic unless and until he takes total responsibility for his rageful behavior.”  Once that stage has been reached, Hightower offers a practical, step-by-step, here-is-how-to-do-it advice for ending previous difficulties with anger and beginning new healthy ways to relate.  The first section of Anger Busting 101 is for the angry man and features a new approach—the Recovery Method—to managing anger.  The second section is designed to help women understand which men can change and which men cannot.  It will also help women learn ways to get their men to start changing.  The third section examines the steps women need to take to help their rageaholic through the changes.
