Les Carter graduated from Baylor University in Waco, Texas then went on to University of North Texas to earn his master's and Ph.D. degrees in counseling. He interned at Life Counseling Center in Dallas where he learned to integrate principles of psychology with theology. This internship, under the tutelage of Dr. Connie Adler and Ross Banister proved invaluable in preparing him to communicate timely truths about emotional and relational issues from a Christian perspective. In February 1980, he joined the Minirth-Meier Clinic (now the Minirth Clinic) in Richardson, Texas where he maintained an active counseling practice until the end of 2004. His years at the clinic opened the doors to many opportunities. Dr Carter has authored or co-authored sixteen books and through the years he has spoken across America in many seminars to thousands and has built a reputation as one who can talk about penetrating concepts in ways that touch common people right where they live. Currently he conducts the popular Anger Workshop and he leads a workshop for businesses called Anger Management in the Workplace. Today he has established his own practice by jointly opening the Southlake Psychiatry and Counseling Clinic.
Filling in for George, Ian Punnett welcomed Dr. Les Carter, during the first two and a half hours of the program, for a discussion on the nature of anger, how to use it constructively and avoid being consumed by it. The remainder of the show featured Open Lines.
