Summary "There are no anger disorders--at least, not according to the DSM-IV-TR. And yet, all major theories on the psychology of emotions have identified anger as one of the basic universal emotions. In this ... exploration, Eva Feindler investigates how and why anger is viewed as a secondary emotion by most clinical theories and practitioners and seeks to answer the following questions: - What are anger-related disorders? ; What do they have in common and how are they different? ; How do we treat the various anger-related disorders? Drawing on one case study, ...[the] contributors each present a different method of treatment for anger related disorders. By taking in to consideration the variety of perspectives and treatments available for anger related disorders, this book provides an overview of how clinicians can implement each of these treatments as well as combine treatments to provide a tailored therapy for each individual client." --Springer
