Exploring Feelings: Anger: Cognitive Behaviour Therapy to Manage Anger (Paperback)
Winner of a 2008 Teachers' Choice Award Many children, especially those with developmental delays, have trouble understanding or expressing their feelings. This can result in difficulty with anger management. Listing possible responses to situations--and the likely outcome of each one--allows the child to make informed decisions about which responses to choose (e.g., walking away vs. hitting). This book provides a guide for caregivers along with a workbook portion that asks children to identify situations that trigger their anger, and helps them find appropriate ways to respond.
Helpful topics include:Overview of the Exploring Feelings Program Introduction to Cognitive Behavior Therapy The Emotional Toolbox Social Stories Research Evidence on the Effectiveness of Exploring Feelings and more.
