Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This clear, well-written book incorporates evidence-based practices for anger management with children and adolescents. Sukhodolsky and Scahill also draw on their own behavioral treatment research with neuropsychiatric disorders. The book is notable for its practical emphasis on how to implement the program. Another feature that sets this book apart is the inclusion of assertiveness training and methods to help children prevent anger-provoking situations before they occur. It will be a useful text for graduate training in practicum courses and for training clinicians."--John E. Lochman, PhD, ABPP, Professor and Doddridge Saxon Chairholder in Clinical Psychology, University of Alabama

"Sukhodolsky and Scahill address an important clinical need for professionals treating disruptive behaviors in 8- to 16-year-olds. Based on established research in the field, the approach in this book can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with other psychosocial or psychopharmacological therapies. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Anger and Aggression in Children is a valuable resource for a wide range of clinicians who provide mental health services to children and adolescents."--Daniel F. Connor, MD, Lockean Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry and Chief, Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, University of Connecticut School of Medicine

"Anger and aggression are major issues for many children and adolescents seen in outpatient settings, and practical, effective interventions are badly needed. This book provides empirically based tools that can help this volatile (yet often fragile) population. One strong asset of the authors' approach is that it attempts to put young people in the driver's seat so they can experience more control and autonomy over their own actions. Most of these patients are not deliberately aggressive; they feel powerless to manage their reactions to upsetting events. This book will help to break this vicious cycle."--Michael Aman, PhD, Nisonger Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, The Ohio State University
