Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 031230045X, Paperback)

Going Off examines common scenarios that can lead to anger in friendships, romantic relationships, families, and the workplace. It suggests ways to defuse your anger triggers by changing your perspective so that you can avoid the temptation to "go off" and instead think about the situation rationally. It also helps you detect when you have fallen into the Invincible Black Woman syndrome, the silent but strong type, and leads you on a path to recovery through control over stressful situations, counseling, setting limits, and accepting support from others. Going Off identifies some of the most common anger triggers and the four anger styles:

* Authoritarian: difficulty seeing others' point of view or feelings
* High Profile: overly concerned with image, often displaying a strong front
* Pragmatic: a stable team player at risk of internalizing anger
* Intellectual: likes to be in control and feels threatened when criticized

Finding spiritual release through rituals, meditation, self-care, and forgiveness is the final tool for conquering negative anger patterns. With insight, empowering quotes, and spiritual reflections, Going Off is full of inspiration and hope.
