Anger is an emotion we all share, and there is an element of danger in the fact that as a society we are becoming numb to incidents involving road rage, violence in schools and malls, even tragic events such as the bombing at the Boston Marathon. With Taming Your Temper, licensed counselor Nathaniel David Smith offers a real-life approach to understanding how angry thoughts translate into behaviors and actions that can destroy relationships, doom a career, or be harmful to the trangressor’s health and the health of those around them. Smith helps to identify triggers and provides ways to cool down before acting in an aggressive or destructive manner. His services have helped the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to rehabilitate offenders with deep rooted anger issues. You can find his book and learn more about his programs at
