“The Mind-Body Workbook for Anger sets the standard for the treatment the entire spectrum of anger management issues, including court mandated treatment for domestic violence offenders. Mind-body bridging is a set of powerful techniques that will help one to rest the system in one’s brain (the I-System) that is responsible for unmanaged anger. I have been in practice twenty years and have found that the tools in this workbook are far superior, better accepted, and more quickly effective than any that I have used with court-ordered domestic violence offenders. Long-term follow-up of recidivism showed rates of only eight percent. Further, I have used and continue to use mind-body bridging in my own life with transformational results.” -Kevin Webb, MSW, LCSW, clinical consultant and therapist, Utah Division of Child and Family Services
“Stan and Carolyn have done it again. Mind-Body Workbook for Anger is a user-friendly, easy-to-apply solution to the problem of anger management. In my long career in treating domestic violence offenders, no other method or technique can compare with it. This book should be on top of the list for both therapists and clients.” -Jules Shuzen Harris, EdD, author of Anger: It Has Something to Teach Us: Can We Listen
“As a psychotherapist, I have been actively involved with domestic violence coalitions and treatment agencies. Anger-management treatment programs based on this Mind-Body Workbook for Anger dramatically reduce dropout rates and recidivism in comparison with conventional treatment methods. In fact, with the favorable results of a large randomized control trial awaiting publication, mind-body bridging is en route to becoming the first evidenced-based treatment and best practice for domestic violence offenders.” – Isaac Phillips, MSW, LCSW, executive director of Equinox Counseling Services; co-chair of the Salt Lake Area Domestic Violence Coalition; and member of the Utah Council for Domestic Violence Perpetrator Treatment
“Research I conducted with domestic violence offenders using mind-body bridging as an intervention found the offenders experienced less stress; gained greater access to problem-solving abilities; and improved their relationships with partners, children, and co-workers. The mind-body bridging approach helped these at-risk individuals avoid reoffending largely by sharpening ability to recognize internal triggers. In my experience, the mind-body bridging techniques used in the Mind-Body Workbook for Anger are successful because they are practical, straightforward, and allow individuals to see results immediately.” -Elisa Audo, PhD, author The Experience of Mind-Body Bridging as a Treatment for Offenders of Domestic Violence, doctoral dissertation, California Institute of Integral Studies, 2012, San Francisco, CA
