Reneau Peurifoy holds a master's degree in counseling and is the author of four books: "Anxiety, Phobias, and Panic: Taking Charge and Conquering Fear", "Overcoming Anxiety: From Short-Term Fixes to Long-Term Recovery", "Anger: Taming the Beast" and "Why Did God Give Us Emotions?" His first book, "Anxiety, Phobias and Panic", has gone through three revisions and sold over 200,000 copies.
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. The Anxiety Disorders Association of America (ADAA), the nation's primary organization for anxiety-related problems, has invited Peurifoy to speak at eleven national conferences.
Peurifoy has a wide range of experience in front of groups, addressing a wide array of topics ranging from overcoming anxiety disorders and stress management to setting limits as a parent. He is a frequent media commentator, having appeared extensively on dozens of television and radio programs. Peurifoy's warmth and comfortable manner generate a strong rapport with audiences. Because he believes so strongly in the material he has developed over his years as a therapist, teacher, and workshop leader, his excitement over sharing it is genuinely contagious.
Peurifoy was in 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. He has attended Fuller Theological Seminary and after retiring from teaching in 2015, he received a ministerial credential from the Church of God headquartered in Anderson, Indiana. He now is spending his time writing, speaking, and seeing people with anxiety-related problems as a pastoral counselor. He has also developed a YouTube channel that features videos on practical life skills.

Midwest Book Review - Reviewer's Choice
"Anger: Taming The Beast" is straightforward, "user friendly", do-it-yourself program that anyone can undertake in order to become master of their emotions, rather than at the mercy of them. Individual chapters focus on learning new ways to resolve conflicts, handling the frustrations and anxieties of parenting, the nature and origins of anger, assertiveness, stress management, and much more. "Anger: Taming The Beast" is a strongly recommended title for anyone seeking to manage their emotions in a more positive, fitting, situationally appropriate manner.
