The Anger Workbook for Teens offers a step-by-step approach to helping teens who need to control their anger. This workbook is designed to help teens learn about their anger, understand how anger affects their lives, and learn constructive communication skills to help express their feelings.
Readers work through a series of exercises and worksheets to explore why they react the way they do, then learn skills and techniques to help them get their anger under control. They will assess their anger to develop a personal anger profile and learn to notice the physical symptoms they feel when they become enraged. Once readers fully understand their anger, they will be better able to target their symptoms in the moment and put new anger management strategies, such as relaxation techniques and active listening, into practice.
