Exploring Feelings: Cognitive Behavior Therapy to Manage ANGER
Author(s): Tony Attwood
Award Winning Book: 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.
