Anger is a ‘given’, a gift of nature when we need to defend ourselves — but frequently destructive at other times. Inappropriate expressions of anger (road rage for example) are on the increase in our society and we need to understand why, what it is doing to us and how we can protect ourselves.

Psychologist Joe Griffin has great experience of helping people change their behaviour and manage inappropriate anger. In this MP3 he explores the physiological, psychological and social consequences of expressing anger and shows both how to control your own anger, and to deal more effectively with other angry people.

This uplifting recording throws light on many fundamental questions, including:

  • why anger evolved and what arouses it
  • how the media encourages inappropriate behaviour
  • the negative health effects of being angry
  • strategies to keep calm under pressure
  • road rage
  • risk of violence: be prepared
  • dealing with unexpected strong feelings

... and much more.

Ivan TyrrellIvan Tyrrell's interest in psychology stems from a childhood experience of undergoing surgery under hypnosis. For twenty years he studied the comparative effectiveness of psychotherapy and counselling models, linking this to what science is discovering about the brain and mind/body/mood connections. As Editorial Director of the Human Givens Journal he has collaborated on many major articles with a variety of distinguished clinicians, writers and other individuals with a focus on psychology, social issues and mental health.

Ivan worked for many years as a psychotherapist and lecturer and is now director of Human Givens College. He founded the Human Givens Institute. He has one son and three daughters and lives with his wife, Véronique, in the Cotswold countryside.
