Anger is a natural part of life and can sometimes be useful. It may motivate you to stand up for what you believe in or alert you when your boundaries have been crossed. Being angry often, however, is not healthy and can wreak havoc on your body and your relationships. When you experience high levels of anger your body kicks into "fight or flight" mode and releases stress hormones as well as raises your blood pressure. Some research has even found a correlation between being highly angry often and heart disease. Your health is not the only thing that suffers from being angry often. Your anger may also lead you to become isolated from others and can keep you from getting your relational needs met.
This book may help you reconnect and strengthen you relationship by examining unhelpful patterns of conflict and underlying unmet relational needs. It includes practical exercises to communicate effectively with your partner and heal relational wounds.
