Leadership-Driven Anger Management Groups for Adolescents: Do They Really Work?
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v43 n1 p57-80 2018
This study investigated a current trend in anger-management groups labeled as leadership development. The goal of the investigation was to determine if leadership is a critical factor in working with angry youth. A total of 52 middle school-aged adolescents from 2 schools served as participants. Of those, 18 participants received a strength-based, leadership-driven anger management group, while 18 participants received the same anger management group, devoid of the leadership component. An additional 16 participants served as a control group and did not receive either of the 2 treatments. Results indicated that the leadership-driven group had the most reduction in overall anger when compared to the other 2.
