A complete, readily applicable guide for school-based professionals, this book presents an empirically supported group intervention for 8- to 12-year-olds with anger and aggression problems. The Anger Coping Program has been demonstrated effective in reducing teacher- and parent-directed aggression and enhancing students' classroom behavior, social competence, and academic achievement. In one volume, the authors provide a session-by-session cognitive-behavioral treatment manual, a clear rationale for the program, and instructions for implementation. Also included are detailed guidelines for monitoring outcomes and successfully duplicating the intervention across multiple settings. Many helpful examples enhance the practical utility of the book, as do reproducible teacher handouts, child self-report forms, and parent letters in English and Spanish.
