Publisher's Summary

Hidden anger that comes out indirectly can undermine relationships between friends, family, and colleagues. When people feel compelled to conceal their true beliefs and emotions, there can be serious physical and psychological results for everyone involved. Tim Murphy and Loriann Oberlin offer a clear definition of passive-aggression and tell listeners not only how to end the behavior but also how to avoid falling victim to other people's hidden anger.

This revised, updated edition offers essential guidance for dealing with problems in the workplace and at school; avoiding the pitfalls of social media, texting, and online communication; and when to seek professional help. Whether you need ways to manage your own anger or ways to cope with this behavior in others, Overcoming Passive-Aggression shares sage advice, practical exercises, and opportunities for personal growth.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    What did you learn from Overcoming Passive-Aggression, Revised Edition that you would use in your daily life?

    Overcoming Passive-Aggression steps listeners/readers through what we too often see as controlling, manipulative, self-absorbed or sometimes lazy or down in the dumps behavior. The book explores where the behaviors come from, how this makes up the passive-aggressive persona, and why it leaves others (bosses, coworkers, significant others) frustrated. Through modern, easy to understand examples we can see the behavior play out and we can also see how to respond to it assertively so that we do not become so angry ourselves. This resources is a must-have for managers. Its multicultural perspectives aid in grasping the concepts that affect people of varying ages, ethnic backgrounds, and positions in life. Overall, very well done.
