Upon pioneering a new approach to emotional healing, she directed her attention to the study of anger and aggression. In her book 8 Keys to Eliminating Passive-Aggressiveness, she examines strategies for overcoming a common yet debilitating response mechanism.

In her newest book "Mindful Anger: A Pathway To Emotional Freedom," Dr. Andrea Brandt takes a refreshing new approach to handling anger. She urges readers to practice "mindfulness" -- the act of deliberately allowing physical sensations and emotions to surface, so they can be examined and released in a productive way. By incorporating mindfulness techniques in daily routines, readers will be able to process anger before it becomes unhealthy.
