The Intentional Clinician #5: Anger! The what, how, where, and why of it with Mike Speakman.

Paul Krauss MA LPC interviews Mike Speakman--part two of the conversation.

In part 2 of my conversation with Mike Speakman, we discuss ANGER! Seriously, we discuss all the ins and outs of anger, what it is, where it comes from, the pros and cons of it, how destructive it can be and how to use it for your benefit. We discuss how anger can affect relationships, why it is a vital emotion, and why it often viewed as negative in the US culture. We hope you enjoy this interview with Mike Speakman LISAC, founder of the PAL support group (parents of addicted loved ones).
