Healthy Anger

How should we respond to a child's temper tantrum? To a teenager's sullen resentment? How can we help children and teens experience their anger without being overwhelmed by it? How can we deal with their anger before it leads to depression, isolation, or even violence? In Healthy Anger, Bernard Golden draws upon more than twenty years of experience as a psychologist and teacher to offer specific, practical strategies for helping children and teens manage their anger constructively. Golden has developed a set of skills that parents, teachers, and counselors can use to show children how to identify the causes of anger; how to respond to it 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 towards themselves and others. And he shows parents how to cope with outbursts--including clear, step-by-step instructions and problem-solving skills--how to derail escalating anger, reward good behaviors, and recognize when professional help is needed. For anyone who has ever helplessly confronted a child's rage or a teenager's defiant fury, Healthy Anger offers a wealth of wise insight, clear advice, and eminently practical strategies for turning anger into understanding.

Anger Management Essentials

Anger Management Essentials Teen Edition is a workbook designed to help teens manage aggressive behavior. Though the term "anger" management is used in our culture, anger is a normal, healthy feeling. It is aggressive behavior that causes physical and emotional harm. There is a wide misconception that anger management is for people who break things and punch holes in walls in fits of rage. What may come as a surprise is that anger management is invaluable to all of us. We all have moments of frustration and irritability: anger management allows us to communicate our feelings assertively, giving us the best chance at getting our needs met. Additionally, anger management teaches active listening skills, essential to healthy personal and professional relationships. The authors, Anita Avedian and Ingrid Caswell, are authorized trainers and supervisors with the National Anger Management Association (NAMA), as well as Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists within California. They wrote Anger Management Essentials Teen Edition with an eye on designing a program that could be customized for every reader, focusing on the individual's primary areas of concern. Though the material in this book is most effective when facilitated by a certified anger management counselor, most of the lessons are self-explanatory and can be used as self-help exercises. The Teen Edition has 25 worksheets and materials so that a school, or counselor, can implement anywhere from a 4-week program (selecting the 4 core worksheets) to a 26-week program with the use of this book. Key areas of focus include: Understanding and Managing Anger with the use of Cognitive Behavioral Tools; Communication and Listening Skills, Developing Healthy Relationships and Boundaries; and, Emotional Intelligence (Mistreatment or Empathy), due to the high correlation between low emotional intelligence and a high number of anger episodes. Anger Management Essentials Teen Edition is for anyone interested in managing aggressive behavior and improving relations both at home and at school, and living a more peaceful, fulfilling life.

Youth Violence

This bibliography comprises a selection of Library of Congress catalog records for some 1,500 books, periodicals, and websites related to youth violence. Anyone wanting such a bibliography could probably compile it from the Library of Congress web site, and the deficiencies in conception and design of this "product" defy understanding. A brief preface sounds an alarm--"...no one should be surprised that youth violence lurks behind every school house door"--but sets forth no criteria for selection of citations (no indication of time frame, purpose, or audience). Entries are arranged alphabetically by title within chapters on school violence, guns and youth, gangs, campus violence, dating and violence, and periodicals and Web sites. Unforgivably primitive alphabetic sorting puts all titles beginning with The together (the same with other articles); and, in addition, those titles are indexed together! Though the title indicates the presence of "abstracts," there are none except the summaries supplied by Library of Congress for juvenile titles (of which there are many). Cross-referencing and indexing (except by title) are absent. The compiler's credentials, motivation, and orientation are not cited. Furthermore, with better design, the contents would have consumed half the number of pages, and a few typeface variations would have eased scanning.
