Anger and Forgiveness
Raymond Lloyd Richmond Ph.D.
Revised 3rd Edition: This new Third Edition incorporates many additions and changes to the text made since the printing of the Second Edition in 2006.
Deeply profound and yet elegantly simple insight into ANGER AND FORGIVENESS.
This book provides much needed clarity about two topics often misunderstood in contemporary culture.
Most of us carry more anger in our hearts than we are capable of admitting even to ourselves. As a result, we often feel stuck in lives of unfulfilled potential, unending resentments, and physical illness. In this book, Dr. Richmond explains the deep psychological implications of anger and forgiveness and shows how to turn the emotional wounds of daily life into psychological growth. The book includes a list of emotions to increase your emotional awareness and also provides information about how anger and a lack of forgiveness can lead to clinical depression.
