A Look At: The Book "Outsmart Anger"

http://media.soundmedicine.org/segments/061613_7.mp3

Joe Shrand, M.D., joined host Barbara Lewis to talk about his new book, “Outsmarting Anger,” and how to manage anger. According to Dr. Shrand, anger is an emotion designed to change the behavior of someone else. When a person gets angry, the brain starts pumping into overdrive and the limbic system, which controls emotion, is activated. Dr. Shrand says anger can be controlled using the decision-making part of the brain, the prefrontal lobe.
