Ron Potter-Efron once again presents clinicians and clients with an insightful exposition of the family of emotions associated with interpersonal aggression and violence. He describes the intrapersonal roots of the interpersonal experience of explosive anger that is as disruptive of the aggressor's life as it is of the aggressed. For Ron rage is more than the far extreme of anger continuum. He anchors the rage experience in the brain center that regulates emotion and impulse control. The essential neurochemical (serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine) conditions for mood regulation are impaired. In addition to brain chemistry, Ron summarizes research on impaired brain anatomy in areas commonly associated with problem solving, impulse control, and quick temper. Impaired neurochemistry and impaired microanatomy become the preconditions for learning six kinds of rage responses to people and events, past and present. With characteristic clarity Ron offers a concise behavioral description of six kinds of rage responses: Sudden Rage (quick, intense, fury), Seething Rage (resentment & repressed hurts), Survival Rage (blind reactive response), Impotent Rage (intolerance & helplessness), Shame Rage (diminished, belittled), and Abandonment Rage (jealous & obsessive). Ron's rapid-assessment- instrument of the six kinds of rage guides the clinician and client through a discovery of rage events and their consequences for self and others. (We look forward to a validation study of "The Potter-Efron Rage Scale"). Ron provides sufficient description of each kind of rage to educate the client and to provide a rational explanation for each dimension of this devastating experience. Assessment and diagnosis sets the stage for creating an individual treatment plan. The ultimate goal of treatment for the client is a new sense of intrapersonal, interpersonal, and transpersonal comfort beyond the chronic explosive experience to perceived or real danger to mind, body, and spirit. The objective of treatment of this radical mood shift is information, formation, and transformation. Clinician and client can select from among a large array of strategic interventions. Each intervention is presented with a rationale for its relevance and a step-by-step guide for resolving each of the six kinds of rage. This book is the third in a trilogy of well-crafted treatment manuals for anger, shame, and rage, also published by New Harbinger. The trilogy comprises a package of interventions for those seeking to change anger-rage-shame responses to unresolved crises, tragedies, and traumas. Ron does not to pretend to offer the final word on rage intervention. However, twenty years of clinical research-practice culminates in a unique clinical guide for facilitating interventions with those who suffer from explosive rage beyond healthy and appropriate anger for justice.
