Anger can be an especially difficult emotion for many children to process in a healthy, non-destructive way. This easy to use workbook will help you teach the special needs students you work with how to manage their anger in a low key, positive manner. Teachers, therapists and parents have used it to implement Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) without prior training.
Through the use of CBT, children will learn to take cognitive control of their emotions. Activities start by exploring how it feels to be happy, relaxed, and then angry. Students are prompted to remember and write down their responses to these feelings.
Next they will develop an emotional toolbox to help them learn to manage anger when it begins.
Written by Dr. Tony Attwood a clinical psychologist with over 30 years experience working with people on the autism spectrum, CBT has become an extremely effective therapy for treating emotion management.
