Exploring Feelings: Anger

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy to Manage Anger

Tony Attwood

Designed to be highly structured, interesting and successful in encouraging the cognitive control of emotions. Every participating child has a workbook for the six two-hour sessions that includes activities and information to explore the specific feelings of being happy, relaxed, anxious or angry. At the end of each session, a project is explained to the child, which is to be completed before the next session. At the start of the next session the project is discussed with the person implementing the program or the group of participants using the program. The Exploring Feelings program is designed to explore the mental world from a scientific perspective. Originally designed for small groups of two to five children 9 and 12 years, with two adults conducting the program, it can easily be modified so that it can be used with just one child. The activities can also be modified to be age appropriate for an adolescent or adult.
Intended for children with Asperger's syndrome, the program can be equally applied to children with High Functioning Autism and Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Not Otherwise Specified (PDDNOS). The author also designed the program so that it does not have to be implemented by a qualified psychologist. A teacher, speech pathologist, occupational therapist or parent could implement the program without having training in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.

Healthy Anger

How to help children and teens manage their anger

Bernard Golden

The author suggests that anger is a natural human emotion intricately connected with a range of other thoughts and feelings. He stresses that anger, when properly understood, tells us more about our own wants and needs than about the person or situation that has caused the anger. He has developed a set of skills that parents, teachers and counsellors can use to show children how to identify the causes of anger, how to respond to anger in ways that lead to an internal sense of competence and self-control, how to use anger to understand their own emotional situation, and how to develop a greater capacity for empathy toward themselves and others. And he shows how to cope with outbursts - including clear, step-by-step instructions and problem solving skills - how to derail escalating anger, reward good behaviours and recognize when professional help is needed.
