How to reclaim anger as a transformational force for constructively resolving life issues.
Full Description

Course objectives:

  • Summarize the way society typically views women's anger, and the models it provides women to fit into
  • Utilize "I" statements that express anger effectively and help define the self
  • Describe several filters that anger is often experienced through
  • Identify several examples of anger being expressed effectively and ineffectively
  • Explain why anger can be a tool for change

When Harriet Lerner began work on her book The Dance of Anger at the Menninger Clinic nearly 30 years ago, there were no books on this subject. Today it is a classic in the field.

Now with the audio learning program Harriet Lerner on Anger, this distinguished psychologist shows how women can reclaim this emotion as a vital, life-changing force.

Our culture encourages and even rewards aggressive men, yet when a woman shows anger, she is shunned, devalued, and ridiculed. This personal session traces the roots of this paradox and teaches how the suppression of anger leads to guilt and self-violation.

This is Harriet Lerner's definitive session on how women can get angry and speak up while constructively resolving life issues.
