Anger: Taming the Beast

Peurifoy’s work is embraced by many self-help groups and clinics addressing anxiety-related problems who have selected his books from among a host of others on the market as the basis for their programs.

Peurifoy has been a key feature speaker at 11 national conferences for The Anxiety Disorders Association of America (ADAA), the nation’s primary organization for anxiety-related problems.  He is also a frequent media commentator, having appeared extensively on dozens of television and radio outlets.

The first edition of Anger: Taming the Beast, was published by Kodansha, a Japanese based publisher that was expanding into the self-help genre. In recent years they decided to pull out of that market, so he saw this as a perfect opportunity to update and re-release it as new second edition published by LifeSkills.

Reneau held a private practice for twenty years as a marriage and family therapist specializing in anxiety disorders. He retired from private practice in 2000 to teach at a local College in Sacramento, California. In 2015, he retired from teaching and received a ministerial credential from the Church of God headquartered in Anderson, Indiana. He is now spending his time writing, speaking, and seeing a limited number of people with anxiety-related problems as a pastoral counselor. He has also developed a YouTube channel (listed below) that features videos on practical life skills. In this way he hopes to share his insights and experience with a new generation.
