    I really like looking at the changes as working toward brain change rather than just behavior or external. It's so much more motivating.

    The focus on validating the client's anger as valuable and playing an important role reminds me of the Internal Family Systems approach and mitigates shame, which can often block progress. I can also see where talking about helping clients change their brains can be motivating. I have many clients who can benefit from these messages. I am also intrigued by the many types of anger, and look forward to learning more about that.

    I would love to hear Ron's ideas about working with clients where stress levels are extremely high and there is unavoidable conflict or crisis (issues such as ongoing experiences with drug addicted children, lengthy financial crisis and family members with anger issues who are not looking to change).

    Best presentation I've heard or read on dealing with anger in clients. I look forward to reading Ron's book, and applying his approach with my next angry client. Thanks Rich for your very useful questions that really help to "download" the information in ways we can all use.
