Don't get mad or get even--get placid using these authors' techniques for defusing difficult situations. Ellis, the "grandfather of Cognitive Behavior Therapy," and Lange explain how to defuse your own anger, guilt, or depression, how to control your reactions when people persist in "pushing your buttons." The skills defined here can be used in work, home, or social situations. The chapters are filled with work sheets to help readers define the onset of inappropriate responses and practice alternative, healthier behaviors or responses. Factual, practical, and feasible.
