The Basics...

What should you do when someone, perhaps your spouse, is mad at you? This video sets the stage for how to receive anger in a way that is skilled and helpful instead of in a way that leads to a big blow-out.

In this video, Dr. Abigail Hirsch outlines three helpful strategies for these moments.

First, know when you can receive anger and when using an Exit and Re-Enter is a better approach.

Second, hang on to your basics. The basic Power of Two skills are especially critical when there is a potential explosion in the making.

Finally, stay problem-solving focused. When you have a disagreement, the goal is to solve the problem, not to see who can land a better punch!
