The forty activities in this workbook can help children learn positive ways to manage their anger. These techniques are based on the theory of emotional intelligence, which assumes that emotional, behavioural, and social skills can be learned in much the same way as sports, music, or academic skills.
This workbook is for young people who express their anger in ways that harm others, themselves, animals, and personal property. The workbook is especially helpful for children who have experienced complex trauma and are hurt, angry, and bereft as a result. Adults can use the exercises in this workbook to guide children to deal constructively with the sources of their anger and to guide them to pro social ways of expressing anger and other emotions associated with their anger. Young people can learn to manage their anger without parental involvement but they do even better when parents are involved and do whatever it takes to be emotionally available to their children.
Our materials and communications are created by young men – whether within an international agency or simply guys doing it off their own bat. We seek to work with clubs, venues and brands with voices that men respect, feel comfortable with and trust to get our message across.

This could be your parents, a sibling, friend, teacher, GP but often talking about how you are feeling can really help you to feel better. People who care about you will want to help you to feel better so don’t feel worried about talking to people.”
