Answer preview

In life, each person is presented with unpleasant situations that spark negative emotions such as anger or rage. While there is limited control over the actions that led to these emotions, the reaction that follows them is within the person’s control. Often people react to unpleasant situations in a violent eBay that threatens their physical and emotional safety as well as that of other people. In his book, Butler recommends a more ethical approach to handling conflict-stricken or unpleasant situations. He proposes the use of non-violent ways which acknowledge the unpleasantness of a situation and recommend useful language and actions for resolution.
