Rage provides helpful insights into an unpredictable emotion. This book on sudden attacks or fits of rage, first published in German in 2007, takes us on a multi-layered, interesting journey through the cultural history and social psychology of this unpredictable emotion. It gives answers to the questions: Where does rage come from? How does rage manifest itself? And what can we do about it? It outlines the various perspectives of perpetrators and victims, exploring their social and cultural context. Moving case studies provide numerous helpful hints and insights for understanding rage. This second, revised edition features a more diverse and multifaceted range of sources, which offer answers to this unpredictable emotion from the world of psychotherapy. The author points out the potential in therapeutic aspects of self-empowerment which, with regular practice, can be applied to our everyday lives. A book for those personally affected, their loved ones, and for people in the caring professions.
