About the Author

Ronald T. Potter-Efron, MSW, PhD, is Director of the Anger Management and Domestic Violence Center at First Things First Counseling in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. He is author of over fifteen books on anger management and related topics. His books for the general public include Angry All the Time (2005) and Healing the Angry Brain (2012).


"Dr. Potter-Efron's groundbreaking book is brilliant. The integration of Domestic Violence and Anger Management treatment with an emphasis on safety while also providing anger management skills and techniques has been a long time coming. This book provides a map to significantly improve the very poor outcomes of older Domestic Violence treatment models. The National Anger Management Association (NAMA) wholeheartedly endorses this extremely helpful handbook."--Rich Pfeiffer, MDiv, PhD, President, Board of Directors, NAMA; Co-Director, Growth Central "Ron Potter-Efron has done a masterful job in writing an intelligent, balanced, and wise exploration of the origins and treatment of dysfunctional anger. It is a must-read for anyone desiring a deeper understanding of anger, rage, and violent behavior. Highly recommended." --Lou Cozolino, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Pepperdine University; Author, The Neuroscience of Psychotherapy: Healing the Social Brain "Handbook of Anger Management and Domestic Violence Offender Treatment represents a major advance in the treatment of individuals and families affected by high conflict, abuse, and physical violence. The author has a sophisticated understanding of these problems - their varied manifestations, causes, and consequences. Eschewing gender-based paradigms and false perpetrator/victim dichotomies, Potter-Efron instead offers interventions that are both gender-inclusive and systemic, based on cutting-edge social science research. Overall, this is one of the two or three best books ever written on family violence treatment." --John Hamel, LCS; Editor-In-Chief, Partner Abuse; Author, Gender-Inclusive Treatment of Intimate Partner Abuse, 2nd Edition: Evidence-Based Approaches
