Anger control issues are prominent among teens and adults with ADHD. This book helps the older teen or adult reader understand common faulty anger management styles and adopt healthy ways to integrate anger into the normal range of emotional experience. Various forms of inappropriate handling of anger are discussed in detail, and corrective procedures given. The destructive patterns include anger avoidance, sneaky anger, anger turned inward toward the self, exploding, shaming, badgering, getting “high” on anger, habitual seething, paranoia, over-defending one’s beliefs, and resentment build-up.
