Anger Management and Violence Prevention: A Group Activities Manual for Middle and High School Students.
Schmidt, Teresa M.
This group-activity manual is intended for adolescents who have risk factors on any of the four ecological levels: personal, family, social, and societal. It contains everything needed to lead a group of middle or high school students through this anger-management program. Part 1 provides guidelines to help initiate and implement a support-group program in a school or agency. Part 2 contains materials to help group leaders understand current theories on adolescent development, facts and theories about violence and family violence, and the effects of family violence on children, especially adolescents. Part 3 contains the complete group guide for leading an anger-management group and includes the objectives, necessary preparation, background information and guidelines, handouts, and detailed step-by-step plans for the 11 sessions. The last part includes support materials, a list of references and supplementary readings, and a list of resources. Overall, the manual provides practical and creative ways to help adolescents clarify their views on violence and look at their own risk factors on each level of the ecological framework. It teaches concrete problem-solving skills to use when adolescents are angry and provides age-appropriate and relevant scenarios in which they can practice these skills. (Contains 40 references.)
