Spiritual anger-management

In the lighthearted comedy Anger Management, a mild-mannered man ends up getting into a fight and is eventually ordered by a judge to undergo anger management therapy. But unlike in the movie, anger is no laughing matter.

Studies indicate increased incidents of angry outbursts on planes, in workplaces, and on the highway. And media coverage of incidents like a father fatally attacking another parent at his son's hockey game, points to an increasing need for permanent solutions to stem the tide of anger that threatens to get out of control.

David Stevens, whom I recently interviewed, found a way not only to control anger but to be freed from it. Fifteen years ago as a college dean at a small midwestern college, David remembers how unpleasant it used to be for his family whenever he lost his temper.
