This practical handbook helps adults to understand, manage and reflect constructively on children's anger. Featuring a wealth of familiar and easy-to-learn game, it is designed to foster successful anger management strategies for children aged 5-12. This book covers the theory behind the games in accessible language, and includes a broad range of enjoyable activities: active and passive, verbal and non-verbal, and for different sized groups. The games address issues that might arise in age-specific situations such as sharing a toy or facing peer pressure. They also encourage children to approach their emotions as a way to facilitate personal growth and healthy relationships. This is an ideal resource for teachers, parents, carers and all those working with anger management in children."Deborah Plummer uses imagination and empowerment to move children and adults from discouragement to success."
