Lesson Learned from Leading an Anger Management Group Using the "Seeing Red" Curriculum within an Elementary School
Sportsman, Emily L.; Carlson, John S.; Guthrie, Kelly M.
Journal of Applied School Psychology, v26 n4 p339-350 2010
Four fourth-grade boys participated in an anger management group using "Seeing Red: An Anger Management and Peacemaking Curriculum for Kids" facilitated by a school psychology intern and her supervisor (J. Simmonds, 2003). The group met for 30 min weekly for a total of 14 sessions. Lessons consisted of practicing skills and strategies related to understanding one's anger and controlling one's own behavior. This intervention was intended to provide a safe environment in which the students could participate in a group of their peers and take part in an anger management curriculum with the goal of changing behavior and generalizing that behavior change to other settings. In this article, the authors review the outcome data and discuss critical issues of group counseling evaluation and accountability. School psychologists' background and training may allow for an expansion of responsibilities to provide a greater range of mental health services to children in schools. (Contains 4 tables.)
