The Anger Control Game teaches children the skills they need for effective anger control. It is particularly helpful in treating conduct-disordered children or those with temper control problems.
Based on cognitive-behavioral principles, The Anger Control Game focuses on six skills related to anger control:
- Empathising with the victim
- Distinguishing between aggressive and nonaggressive acts
- Using self-statements to diffuse anger
- Generating and evaluating alternatives to aggression
- Identifying feelings underlying anger
- Evaluating the opinions of others.
An Anger Control Inventory (included) helps you determine which skills a child needs to develop. Usually played by the therapist and one or more children, the game can also be played in the classroom.
