How do you respond to anger? Dr. Christian Conte created "Yield Theory" as a way to meet conflict without aggression or submissiveness through the practice of compassionate listening. With Walking Through Anger, he teaches you this revolutionary model for dealing with anger in an increasingly divisive world. Combining Buddhist wisdom, neuroscience, and Dr. Conte's hands-on experience as one of top anger management therapists, he offers powerful tools for resolving conflict in a way that promotes deeper connection and understanding.
Yield Theory is a form of radical self-compassion that lets you circumvent the brain's fight-or-flight responses in yourself and the person you're talking to. With a practical guidance, Dr. Conte takes you through seven steps of this method: acceptance, authenticity, conscious education, creativity, elimination of shame, mindfulness, and non-attachment.
