The Jungle Pack: Workbook-Therapy Journal is a therapist’s aid in helping the client to set goals, navigate emotional booby traps and furhter understand his or her relationships.  As a licensed Professional Counselor, I find that most people who visit with me often confuse the role of emotions.  The physical symptoms of anger and fear are not meant for the job of making decisions.  Emotions such as anger, fear, anxiety and sadness are temporary manifestations which result from how a person views their world or situation at any given time.  If I am thinking someone has me backed into a corner with no way out, then my reaction is likely one of defense and anger.  If I let anger influence what is going to happen, such as hitting or kicking, then the ability to investigate for options is lost to me.  I end up making things harder on myself.

This can become a real issue of waste and continued trouble that gets in the way of pursuing goals.  And the goals are in the realm of school performance, employment or dating and improvement of marital relationships.

  1. As a mediator and counselor myself, I’m intrigued by your book and interested in hearing more about your approach–but could only find one blog entry. Have I missed something–or could I invite you to say more? Candida

  2. Your comments are right on. It’s amazing how anger can fuel us in relationships — by contrast, seeking to understand, as Stephen Covey so eloquently said, works as well and feels much better!!
