About this title

Synopsis:

A Volcano in My Tummy: Helping Children to Handle Anger presents a clear and effective approach to helping children and adults alike understand and deal constructively with children's anger. Using easy to understand yet rarely taught skills for anger management, including how to teach communication of emotions, A Volcano in My Tummy offers engaging, well-organized activities which help to overcome the fear of children's anger which many adult care-givers experience. By carefully distinguishing between anger the feeling, and violence the behavior, this accessible little book, primarily created for ages 6 to thirteen, helps to create an awareness of anger, enabling children to relate creatively and harmoniously at critical stages in their development.

Through activities, stories, articles, and games designed to allow a multi-subject, developmental approach to the topic at home and in school, A Volcano in My Tummy gives us the tools we need to put aside our problems with this all-too-often destructive emotion, and to have fun while we're at it.

Elaine Whitehouse is a teacher, family court and private psychotherapist, mother of two and leader of parenting skills workshops for eight years. Warwick Pudney is a teacher and counsellor with ten years experience facilitating anger management, abuser therapy and men's change groups, as well as being a father of three. Both regularly conduct workshops.

From the Back Cover:

My brother said I hit him, but I didn't.
My father growled at me.
I got mad at Dad.
When I get angry it's like I've got a volcano in my tummy.
― a story by L, aged 9.

Children often have problems with anger. Teachers and parents often have problems with anger. Why? Because we're afraid of anger. It may mean that someone is out of control. It may mean that someone won't like us. It may mean that someone acts violently.

A Volcano in My Tummy is about helping 6 - 15 year olds handle their anger so that they can live successfully, healthily, happily and nonviolently, with motivation, without fear and with good relationships. An accessible resource book for teachers, parents and all who care for children, it is full of stories, and easy-to-use games and exercises designed to encourage children to see their anger and to deal constructively with it.

A Volcano in My Tummy includes sections on key concepts, building a child's self esteem, what adults can do when a child is angry, developing an anger management program, troubleshooting, and a special section for teachers that integrates the resource with other curriculum areas. Exercises are clearly described, indicating appropriate age levels, teaching strategies, materials and procedures to follow, with worksheets for the childrens' use. All are easily adaptable for use by teachers, parents or other caregivers.

"This is a wonderful book about anger. We need as many new and creative approaches to handling anger as we can find. A Volcano in my Tummy is full of useful ways for teachers and caregivers to help young people learn safe and effective means of responding anger nonviolently."
― Priscilla Prutzman, co-author The Friendly Classroom for a Small Planet and co-founder of Children's Creative Response to Conflict, based in New York.

Eliane Whitehouse is a counselor and psychotherapist who runs courses on "Happier Parenting", anger, human development, self-esteem, communication and eating problems.

Elaine lives in Auckland, New Zealand.
