Adolescent Anger Management
Some Practical Texts

Anger Management - an overused phrase that often provokes more anger than management. Anyone working with angry adolescents rapidly realizes that while attention may be on the consequences - damage, disruption, violence to self and others - anger won't be resolved unless underlying issues are listened to and addressed if possible.

Equally strong emotions give rise to the expression of anger - fear, embarrassment, loss among many. The sense of injustice is a constant theme - 'things not being fair'. Things indeed are not fair for many adolescents, and their power to change the situation may be effectively non-existent. Unlike work with adults, when even in the most desperate circumstances it is usually possible to identify some means of improving the outcome, adolescents are often powerless in situations that are not of their making. Who wouldn't be angry?

Adolescent suicide rates, especially among young men are a huge concern. Angry adolescents are often depressed and always have very low self-esteem. The experience of being listened to by someone who isn't shouting, arguing or criticising can make a big difference. Easy to say if you're a teacher or parent on the receiving end.

There are a number of useful, practical texts to support work with angry adolescents that build on these ideas of increasing self control, improving self-esteem and seeing situations from the point of view of others.

Anger Management: A Practical Guide by educational psychologists Adrian Faupel, Elizabeth Herrick and Peter Sharp is a long-established text offering strategies and tips for teachers and parents. While directed at work with young people, the concepts also have been valued by adults trying to understand and cope with their own anger.

Tina Rae has written a number of excellent practical guides, setting anger in a broader context that contributes to de-labelling the young people concerned. Two examples are Emotional Survival: An Emotional Literacy Course for High School Students and Strictly Stress: Effective Stress Management for High School Students.

Alex Kelly, whose primary work is with adults with learning disabilities has also produced a number of comprehensive social communications programmes of relevance to people of all ages. Talkabout: A Social Communication Skills Package and Talkabout Activities: Developing Social Communication Skills provide excellent models for groupwork.

Deborah Plummer offers simple, creative, fun activities that are suitable for children of all ages, including those with special needs. Helping Children to Build Self-Esteem: A Photocopiable Activities Book and Using Interactive Imagework with Children: Walking on the Magic Mountain are good examples.

Richard Nelson-Jones has written extensively on counselling psychology. Human Relationship Skills is partly directed at young people and is intended to help people make better decisions.

Stress Anxiety Depression by Martin Simmons and Peter Daw is a practical self-help workbook that is also useful for professional helpers. The text is clearly set out and makes useful distinctions between terms that are often confused or used interchangeably. The authors highlight 'an ability to relax' as a primary aim.

Anger Control Training is a comprehensive cognitive-behavioural training pack by Emma Williams and Rebecca Barlow intended for use by professionals in a variety of disciplines.

For those working in schools, Brief Counselling in Schools: Working with Young People from 11 to 18 by Dennis Lines offers a realistic overview of the challenges involved.

Finally, two more theoretical texts that offer valuable insights and context - Clinical Practice with Adolescents by David G. Martin and At Risk Youth: A Comprehensive Response by J. Jeffries McWhirter, Benedict T. McWhirter, Ellen Hawley McWhirter and Robert J. McWhirter.

Practical and user-friendly, this comprehensive workbook is an essential resource for therapists running social skills groups.
