ebook-cover-angerForgiveness has been said to be an antidote to anger  in your life because every time you remember the injustice, and you will remember it since forgiving is NOT forgetting, you choose to release the perpetrator from the debt that she/he owes you.  You may read about the Biehl’s amazing journey here:


And…The Mayo Clinic Staff reports that researchers are claiming that, in addition to improving your spiritual health, forgiveness may have benefits for your physical health, too.  This is definitely something that warrants our attention!  It is being said that “letting go of grudges and bitterness can make way for compassion, kindness and peace, and that forgiveness can lead to:

  •  Healthier relationships
  • Greater spiritual and psychological well-being
  • Less anxiety, stress and hostility
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Fewer symptoms of depression
  • Lower risk of alcohol and substance abuse”

Well, this helps explain the statement I’ve heard and read again and again that if you experience a high level of gratitude you cannot be depressed.  This makes sense since depression is anger suppressed.  Imagine a line with frustration in the middle.  It can go either way- one end is depression(extremely suppressed anger) and the other is a high anger level – often in an inappropriate, aggressive way.

The University of Maryland School of Medicine  is researching the connection between anger and  “unforgiveness”. Anger is a component of unforgiveness and anger is a health risk.  Then is unforgiveness  a health risk  as well? Included in the research are studies with aids patients.  Knowing more about the nature and course of anger expression in the context of unforgiveness will ultimately help define and clarify this area of research.

Now I’ll share a few important points that can be helpful in letting go of anger- something I’ve learned as an Advanced EFTtapping  (Emotional Freedom Techniques) Certified Practitioner in a training I attended and has been reinforced in my trainings to facilitate Anger Management.

  • As the victim, it’s OK to forgive only a small percent.
  • Perhaps the other’s behavior was impacted by a chemical/emotional imbalance
  • *** The other was doing what he/she knew how to do – perhaps learned – no matter.
  • It’s possible that the action was not meant “personally” – it was simply an “M.O.”
  • It’s impossible to change another person’s way of dealing; only your own.

If you or someone you love gets help with managing anger and/or letting it go as a victim, then stress is automatically addressed and therefore health will improve too!

 Balance & Power, Inc. has been addressing stress and anger management issues for two decades, corporately and  in the educational and private sectors, and is now facilitating Workplace Bullying Prevention trainings.

 Resolving conflicts,  violence & bullying prevention workplace programs in the workplace and schools need to be in the  forefront again with the horrific event in our nation’s capital.  The news coverage has informed us the murderer had PTSD and had a previously reported gun problem.    I shy away from expressing political  opinion in my work and know now that I must take a stand for stronger gun control and background checks with proper privacy controls.  The other component is to up the ante on public education and trainings in the field of conflict resolution, anger/stress management , violence prevention and bullying prevention in the schools and workplace.  I work with small groups, individuals and couples in my Long Island office and via Video skype as well as go onsite to facilitate.  Every group presentation is customized.  You may contact me for a 15 minute complimentary strategy phone session 516 623 4353 or connect with me via email

Studies have been verifying that bullying (victim or perpetrator) affects adulthood. A new study suggests that  that bullying doesn’t end in the schoolyard, but casts a shadow into adulthood when emotional, behavioral, financial and health problems manifest.

Research shows that the poor results for victims and victims-perpetrators ran high even when other important factors such as childhood psychiatric disorders and family hardship were controlled.  It’s these victims-perpetrators that are the most socially defeated, as they are unsuccessful at fighting back.  Bullies enter adulthood with similar problems as victims: low self esteem, poor communicative abilities, poor anger and stress control  and difficulty sustaining positive relationships. 

 The global economic and political climate is a large stress factor for most people.  Anger is a natural human emotion; however it can be self-sabotaging and destructive when out of control…  I will be facilitating a three week Anger Management group for adults in Long Island starting soon.  See details and sign up here: http://www.balanceandpower.com/angermanagement.php

 I continue to see individuals, both adults and children in person and via video skype.

Hi Everyone!

Success and Happiness are basic human rights…
Unfortunately, there is a part of the population that blocks success and happiness.  I’m not talking about governments now, but individuals- “bullies”- and as children/youth bullies  grow up to  become adult  bullies, often criminal in nature.   No matter what age, there are several common characteristics among bullies and extremely angry people:

  • Poor or no self-esteem
  • Poor or no self-love
  • Shame
  • Poor communication skills

Several years ago, I became a certified anger management specialist/educator and work with court mandated  as well as individuals and groups who are truly motivated to learn how to release anger and stress in appropriate ways and have happier, more successful lives.

The other side of the spectrum are the victims.  Those who have been bullied , physically and/or emotionally abused have a lot in common:

  • Poor or no self-esteem
  • Poor or no self-love
  • Depression or Anger
  • Difficulty focusing

I am co-facilitating groups this summer http://www.jamieisaacsfoundation.org  in Long Island for young people who are bullying survivors.  These are  support groups as well as for suicide prevention.  Much of the curriculum is from my book/manual SOAR! with Resilience™ 
I am continuing to run small groups in Wantagh, Long Island on the second and fourth Saturday AM of each month for angry/and or stressed individuals.
I offer complimentary telephone consults/coaching strategy session                         516 623 4353
