Andrea Brandt, PHD, MFT
In her workshops, patient sessions and presentations, Dr. Brandt reveals positive paths to emotional health that teach you how to reinvent and empower yourself. She emphasizes the mind-body-heart connection as a key to mental, physical and emotional wellness. Upon pioneering a new approach to emotional healing, Dr. Brandt directed her attention to the study of anger management and conflict resolution. In her book 8 Keys to Eliminating Passive-Aggressiveness, Dr. Brandt examines strategies for overcoming a common yet debilitating response mechanism.
In her second book, Mindful Anger: a pathway to emotional freedom, Dr. Brandt explores methods to better understand and manage the powerful emotion of anger. In her third book, Mindful Aging: Embracing Your Life After 50 to Find Fulfillment, Purpose, and Joy, Dr. Brandt challenges you to throw out the old stereotypes about aging, to look at the powerful and inspiring new evidence, and to open yourself to the very real possibilities that exist for you right now.
She holds workshops open to the public on passive-aggressiveness: 8-Keys to Eliminating Passive-Aggressive Behavior Workshop. She also trains therapists across the nation with the seminars: Mindful Anger: The Art of Transforming a Difficult Emotion into a Therapeutic Tool Seminar and Mindful Aging: Finding Fulfillment, Purpose, and Joy in Later Life.
"8 Keys to Eliminating Passive Aggressiveness" was a good book. I researched PA books for a while before I bought this one. I am an engineer and know very little about psychology. This book is straight forward, concise and provides realistic approaches to help you.
"Mindful Anger" changed my behavior (because it reached my mind and heart) while I was listening to it, which I did twice. I thought it organized information well and gave really excellent examples that I could understand and relate to. Sometimes you just need one really beautiful or important thing to take away and make your own, and this book gave me that.
"Mindful Aging" is an enjoyable and useful book. It's for all ages but I found it so helpful I bought copies for my friends. It's written so all ca n follow and make use of the advise. It's not at all dull or preachy as some self help books are and it helped me embrace my age with joy and not despair!
