Narrated by the author.
Discover a compassion-based method for defusing conflict and creating better relationships in every area of your life. How do you respond to anger--in yourself or others? Do you fight fire with fire, or run for cover? Dr. Christian Conte created Yield Theory as a way to meet conflict without aggression or submissiveness through the practice of compassionate listening, de-escalation, and genuine communication. With Walking Through Anger, he shares this revolutionary model for dealing with inflamed emotions in even the most difficult and charged situations. Combining Buddhist wisdom, neuroscience, and Dr. Conte's hands-on experience as a top anger management therapist, Walking Through Anger teaches you powerful tools for resolving conflict in a way that promotes deeper connection and understanding, including: - The three steps of Yield Theory: listen, validate, and explore options - Acceptance: the art of meeting others where they are without judgment - Authenticity: staying true to your essential self within conflict - Compassion: choosing to connect from a foundation of empathy - Nonattachment: letting go of the need to "be right"--Conscious education: the essential shift from emotion-based conflict to rational interaction - Creativity: opening the door to solutions you can't imagine from an angry place - Mindfulness: cultivating moment-to-moment awareness of emotional energy - The "Five Errors of Communication": how to avoid the most common pitfalls "Communicating in the heat of conflict can feel overwhelming," says Dr. Conte, "Yield Theory gives you the tools to lead with compassion so that you can get around other people's defense mechanisms, communicate in ways that are actually heard, and connect more quickly and authentically than you ever thought possible." Walking Through Anger is a profound resource for learning to deal effectively with the most difficult emotions--in yourself and in others--to transform your relationships, interpersonal conflicts, and your day-to-day experience of life.
