Getting Control of Yourself: Anger Management Tools and Techniques
by Christian Conte
In this lively and instructive video, watch anger management expert, Christian Conte, PhD, present his comprehensive and practical theory for treating—and healing—even the most violent offenders.
Do your clients struggle with anger? Do you struggle with finding empathy for clients who act out in anger or violence? Are you searching for new and better ways to help them manage these issues? Take this powerful workshop that will increase your self-understanding and give you tools to help your clients handle challenges without losing control.

Going far beyond the old “count to 10, take a deep breath” models, and completely eliminating shame-based techniques, Christian Conte, PhD, offers radical new ways of understanding why people rage and how they can stop. In this video, you will learn about the neurochemistry of anger, how to recognize your client’s personal anger-types, and how to help them master antidotes to each. In addition, you will become skilled at helping clients recognize their triggers, detach from their thoughts, and use their self-awareness more effectively.

What therapists are saying…

"Getting Control of Yourself is a powerful combination of stories on controlling anger, rage, and violence. Christian Conte is a master storyteller on human behaviors who engages viewers in multiple ways. Dr. Conte is also a competent and experienced therapist who explains the essence behind people’s destructive actions and how to prevent them. This video is both educational and entertaining. Its insights are enlightening and potentially transformative."

-- Samuel T. Gladding, PhD, Professor of Counseling, Wake Forest University; Past President, American Counseling Association.
"Divided into chapters, some of the mini-lectures here are more geared to the mean-street environments, but the underlying principles are universal, and Conte makes the viewer pay fresh attention to paraphrasings based on old saws about cooling down, stepping back, taking a deep breath, and thinking things over (it may be worthwhile to note that Dr. Conte actually looks a bit like a massive WWE wrestler). A solid psychology title on a perennially timely topic, this is highly recommended." (3 1/2 Stars)
