I.A.M.: A Common Sense Guide to Coping with Anger

Synopsis

Fein demonstrates a functional theory of anger, which posits that anger can and must be used socially, rather than merely expressed. Fein introduces Integrated Anger Management (IAM) and explains the steps in socializing the emotion: assuring safety, achieving incremental tolerance of anger, evaluating anger's message and judging the means used to accomplish its end, relinquishing goals if necessary, and effectively using the energy of emotion to achieve realistic goals. Included are specific applications, such as the place of anger in families and in the workplace.
