Many children experience difficulty in controlling their strong feelings and in managing conflict in both school and home settings.
This book aims to help children:
- Avoid or manage situations of conflict
- Understand that they can create change
- Realise that it is possible to resolve difficulties and achieve a positive outcome.
In this thoughtful approach to anger management, the authors suggest a teaching and learning model and use a story as the focus of pupil engagement.
The eight stories help children develop emotional literacy through topics such as:
- Fighting with friends
The stories also reinforce some of the key themes and concepts introduced via the Primary National Strategy's SEAL Curriculum.
During the 10-session programme children will: • Understand anger in a variety of situations • Learn about physiological and behavioural aspects of anger • Rehearse coping strategies • Plan positive responses to provocative situations.
The book offers teachers and non-teaching staff a practical, exciting and well-designed resource with full facilitator notes and all handout materials printable from a CD Rom.
