Anger Alert! Listen to Your Body's Anger Warning Signs and Control Your Temper... Before It's Too Late! Max Nass & Marcia Nass, $27.95 (therapeutic game, ages 7-12)

Some of us clench our fists; some tremble; others have the urge to throw something. All of us experience physical symptoms — warning signs — when anger is about to erupt. This clever card game introduces kids to these "anger alerts" and teaches 10 easy strategies they can use to calm down and retain their composure. As players race to get rid of their cards, they respond to anger-provoking situations. But before responding, they must invert an hourglass timer and wait 7 seconds. This delay reminds kids to stop and think before they act. An eye-catching poster displaying both anger warning signs and anger control strategies is included, along with four colorful sand timers. Includes Leader’s Introductory Guide; 1 Poster (Anger Warning Signs on one side, Anger Controls on the other side); 4 Impulse Control Timers; 50 Anger Spark Cards; 10 Anger Warning Sign Cards; and 6 Swap Cards. For 2 to 4 players.

Helpful topics include:

  • Overview of the Exploring Feelings Program
  • Introduction to Cognitive Behavior Therapy
  • The Emotional Toolbox
  • Social Stories
  • Research Evidence on the Effectiveness of Exploring Feelings

Handbook of Anger Management and Domestic Violence Offender Treatment, 2nd Edition. Ronald Potter-Efron, $59.95

Ronald Potter-Efron consciously connects anger management and domestic violence, two long separated fields, and addresses treatment options and intervention methods that meet the needs of individual clients, couples, families, and groups. Therapists, counselors, social workers, and other treatment specialists will find this book a useful overview and reference for anger and anger management techniques as well as domestic violence approaches. This new edition is split into four distinct sections:

  • A description of anger and domestic violence focused upon helping clients use the principles of neuroplasticity to dramatically alter their behavior
  • Assessment for anger problems and/or domestic violence
  • Group treatment for individuals with anger problems and/or domestic violence
  • Individual, couples, and family treatment of these concerns

Woven through this book is a fair and balanced treatment of gender issues, reflected in the diversity of case examples that address jealousy, chronic anger, behavioral problems, group and individual counseling, and more. Readers are also shown how anger develops and can lead to verbal and physical outbursts, the five types of rage reactions, and how to treat anger turned inward. Potter-Efron also details four different approaches to treating anger: behavioral, cognitive, affective, and existential/spiritual. Mental health professionals are provided numerous questionnaires and worksheets to utilize with their clients. Handbook of Anger Management and Domestic Violence Offender Treatment is an essential guidebook that illustrates effective theory and practice.

Little Volcanoes: Helping Young Children and Their Parents to Deal with Anger. Warwick Pudney & Éliane Whitehouse, $30.95

Young children can erupt like little volcanoes when they are feeling angry. It can be overwhelming and difficult to deal with, and can produce angry feelings in the parent or caregiver too.

This book is packed with advice and strategies for those working with children under five on how to understand and manage anger in children, and how to help their parents or caregivers to deal with anger. The authors outline the different reasons children may feel angry so that their emotions can be fully understood, and offer strategies to combat negative feelings and minimize outbursts. These include putting in place behavioural boundaries and helping a child to feel secure. Simple activities and exercises are also given to help children and adults to express their anger positively. In addition, a selection of poems and stories will help adults to pass on the lessons of the book to children.


Mode Deactivation Therapy for Aggression and Oppositional Behavior in Adolescents: an Integrative Methodology Using ACT, DBT, and CBT. Jack Apsche & Lucia DiMeo, $68.95

Clinicians know that mental health disorders in adolescents may manifest externally as aggressiveness, opposition, or isolation from others. What's less clear is just how to move beyond these conduct and defiance issues to help teenage clients cooperate with treatment so they can build healthy social skills and values.

This text combines the most effective aspects of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and functional analytic psychotherapy (FAP) to meet the specific challenges of therapists working with angry, distrustful, or hostile adolescents. This evidence-based treatment program is effective with the most difficult-to-treat adolescents, especially those who struggle with anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and depression. Complete with assessments and client worksheets, this approach encourages young clients to see alternatives to their antisocial core beliefs and equips them with skills for gaining control of their emotions and oppositional behavior. The skills these clients learn will be useful long after adolescence, and can redirect their lives dramatically.
