The Cognitive Behaviour Therapy program Exploring Feelings was designed by Dr Tony Attwood to be highly structured, interesting and successful in encouraging the cognitive control of emotions.
Many children, especially those with developmental delays, have trouble understanding or expressing their feelings, and the result can be difficulty with anger management.
Listing possible responses to situations-and the likely outcome of each one-allows the child to make informed decisions about which responses to choose (walking away vs. hitting). This book provides a guide for parents or caregivers and then the workbook portion asks children to identify situations that trigger their anger and find appropriate ways to respond.
