What’s Your Anger Type? Revised Edition

New York, NY – In a thoughtful new book, renowned author and psychologist Peter Sacco takes a good, hard look at anger and the reasons it might be disrupting our lives, and future generations. In What’s Your Anger Type? Revised Edition, he asks, can anger be addictive?

“After working with individuals one-on-one in counseling and in groups, I would definitely have to say yes,” he says. “There are people who get totally aroused, empowered and motivated by their anger.” People respond to adversity and emotions one of two ways. They either run from it, or they stand up to it. “If you keep standing up to conflict or seek it, you get aroused and release adrenaline. This hormone provides a rush almost like a stimulant or ‘upper.’ We are seeing more of this now in acts driven by political fanaticism and moral justification.

There are twelve types of anger identified in What’s Your Anger Type? Revised Edition. A series of self-inventory tests help to clarify the different anger types and provide tips on overcoming them through proven methods. The two most important facts to keep in mind about anger, Sacco says, are that anger is a normal and healthy emotion, and you are not nuts or insane when you get angry. “It is how you deal with your anger which is the most important factor,” he continues. “There’s no time like the present to modify your life and make optimal living your goal.” His new book examines how ‘anger’ is affecting today’s children in North America.

Peter Sacco is also the acclaimed author of Right Now Enough Is Enough, a self-help guide for overcoming addictions of all types by combining Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) with the law of attraction. And in Why Keeping Resolutions Are So Ridiculously Difficult! The Handbook To Understanding And Overcoming Procrastination, Sacco explains that procrastination is a habit that can become an addiction, and how it is out of control in our culture – as are the bad habits and addictions which are its by-products.

In addition to being an author of many books and more than 800 magazine articles, Sacco is an award-winning lecturer at universities in both the USA and Canada, specializing in relationships, criminal psychology, addictions, and mental health. He is also a frequent resident expert on several television programs and appears regularly as a guest expert on many news talk radio shows in the USA (FOX, ABC, CBS, Iheart, Coast To Coast, etc.), as well as hosting the weekly radio show “Matters of the Mind: Managing Relationships and Mental Health.” He is also an award-winning executive producer and host of documentaries on relationships, psychological issues and child issues.

Sex Addiction 101: A Basic Guide to Healing From Sex, Porn, and Love Addiction

By Robert Weiss

“Clearly, this work is intended to enlighten not only the clinical population, but actual sex addicts and those who love them. If you are a therapist, my sincere hope is that you will find something here that helps you to help others, and if you are a sex addict or the partner thereof, my hope is that you will come away with a better understanding of this complicated issue, and also with some useful ideas on how to overcome this very serious addiction.” – David Sack, MD

Deerfield Beach, FL – In Sex Addiction 101: A Basic Guide to Healing from Sex, Porn, and Love Addiction (HCI Books—$14.95) Robert Weiss acknowledges and defines the loosely used term “sex addiction.” With his exensive background in the mental health and addictions field, Robert is able to give his readers real life testimonials of people who have been diagnosed with having a sexual addiction, and people whose sexual addiction is ruining or has already ruined their family, career, or health. All of the material in Weiss’ book is presented tastefully, and suitable for professionals and the general reader, including sex addicts and their loved ones.

Many people believe an addiction to consist only of drugs and alcohol, but Robert acknowledges that addictions can arise in all things done excessively. People suffer from addictions to their cellphone, social sites, gambling/spending, and even love. A lot of people believe the above addictions to be attributed to having some sort of compulsive disorder, but Sex Addiction 101 recounts the importance of recognizing the difference between compulsions and addictions, seeing as many people confuse the two and try to use them interchangeably.

Sex Addiction 101 is broken down into 18 simple chapters, where Robert is detailed in providing clear and simple explanations of all aspects involving sex addiction. The chapters range from topics that address common questions about sex addiction like, What is Sex Addiction,Treating Sex Addiction, and Gay Men and Sex Addiction to subjects that may be harder to address like, Teens and Sex Addiction, Sexual addiction vs. paraphilia vs. sexual offending, and The fusion of stimulant abuse and sexual behavior. Sex addicts are individuals who have lost control over their sexual fantasies and behavior; this book is a primer for understanding this complicated disease.

Highlights from the book include:

Common Signs and Symptoms of Sexual Addiction:

⦁ Obsessive Sexual Fantasy and Preoccupation and Loss of Control
⦁ Related Adverse Consequences
⦁ Tolerance and Escalation
⦁ Withdrawal and Denial

The Cycle of Sexual Addiction

1. Triggers (Shame/Blame/Guilt/Other Strong Emotions)
2. Fantasy
3. Ritualization
4. Sexual Acting Out
5. Numbing
6. Despair (Shame/Anxiety/Depression)

The Downside of Sex Addiction:

⦁ Addiction Hopping/Related addictions
⦁ Significant directly related Negative Life Consequences
⦁ Physical and Mental Health Problems
⦁ Career and Legal Issues
⦁ Relationship Instability and Difficulty Rebuilding Familial Relations

About the Author:

Currently serving as the Senior Vice President of Clinical Development, Robert Weiss is in charge of various treatment programs around the United States. Along with his already bountiful schedule, Robert provides sexual addiction treatment training internationally to psychology professors, addiction treatment centers, and the US military. In 1995 Robert founded the Sexual Recovery Institute in Los Angeles, which became one of the first facilities anywhere in the world that offers treatment for sexual addiction and its related issues. The author of Robert’s foreword for Sex Addiction 101, David Sack, characterizes Robert as, “… the face of and driving force behind understanding and treating profound intimacy disorders like sexual addiction.” Robert Weiss is not just an author and Clinical expert, he is a humanitarian who cares about more than just the well being of himself.

You’re Tearing Us Apart; Twenty Ways We Wreck Our Relationships And Strategies To Repair Them

By Pat Love, Eva Berlander, and Kathleen McFadden
Illustrated by Andres Berlander

Houston, TX – Many broken relationships not only can be mended, but magnificent, say the authors of You’re Tearing Us Apart; Twenty Ways We Wreck Our Relationships and Strategies to Repair Them (HCI Books—$12.95), Pat Love, Eva Berlander, and Kathleen McFadden. Readers get a quick and straight to the point look at twenty ways a relationship can be ruined and most importantly how to fix them. Using more than fifty years of combined professional experience and scientific study, they’ve ensured tried-and-true strategies that work.

Experience proves one person can destroy a relationship not two. A broken trust can be caused by just one person pushing the other too far. It can happen either by invading privacy, over criticizing, or even a drunken argument. But the good news is that while one person can indeed break the relationship apart, one person can also be the one to fix it. All it takes is three steps:

Step 1: Recognize the part of your behavior that undermines intimacy
Step 2: Replace harmful behaviors with healthy acts of love
Step 3: Repeat steps 1 and 2!

Who has the time and inclination to wade through 200 pages to find a solution to an immediate relational problem? These three authors collaborated to write a narrative where each chapter is broken down into four easy to understand sections. The first illustrates what it’s like to live with someone practicing the relationship-threatening behavior. Then the psychology behind the behavior is explained followed by a concise description as to why the behavior is so threatening to the relationship. Each chapter ends with a variety of strategies to help any couple overcome their problems.

The snack-able chapters found in You’re Tearing Us Apart can be read one by one or completely devoured; either way, readers come out with an independent-study degree in relationship problem-solving. The book teaches the reader how to acknowledge, understand, and make a change to fix the problems in their relationships. The scenarios are easily relatable and give the reader a better understanding of how each problem affects the relationship. The many solutions given at the end of each chapter give readers plenty of options to adapt into their relationships.

In addition, each chapter is introduced with a piece of artwork that mirrors the problems of the chapter. The original artwork is gender neutral as well as the writing. This allows the text to be adapted by any type of couple looking to fix their relationship.

With the techniques found in this book, any couple can learn to move forward while creating happy, healthy relationships.
