What Others Say About Got An Angry Kid? and The PACT Training Program

"The family is much calmer. Taking PACT Training was the best decision I ever made. It's the best hard work I've ever done. PACT was the light at the end of the tunnel for us."
--Ms. K. D., Willimantic, CT, Mom and Dad of an adolescent girl placed in foster care

"From my professional experience as a manager in the field, PACT is one of the very few services which has been held in high regard by our professional staff as well as the families which benefitted from Dr. Gibson's excellent program."
--Ms. Helen Lawrence (retired) Connecticut State Department of Children and Families (CTSDCF)

"I have had to fight for every service for my family. PACT is my best chance to [create] change. Thanks for everything."
--Ms. K.M., Vernon, CT, single Mom of an out-of-control son

"Although I was only a few weeks into PACT, I felt myself becoming calmer, more hopeful, and more in control. PACT is putting life into my parenting and does what three years of residential placement didn't."
--Mrs D.W., Hamden, CT, single Mom of a seriously emotionally disturbed boy

"Again, I can't say enough about how this program has changed my life."
--Mr. L.C., New Milford, CT, single parent of a foster child

"PACT and Got An Angry Kid? is brilliant."

Editorial Reviews

Professional Counselor - Virginia M. Fulton

Here is a book that lays out, clearly and concisely a step-by-step program for the parent(s)so that they can start to do things that work, to scrap the stuff that doesn't work and to create real change. This program is consistent with tried-and-true family systems theory - when one or two members of a group change, the whole system, even Spike (the book's prototype of everyone's nightmare
Reader Views - Paige Lovitt
The first reaction that I felt after reading "Got An Angry Kid?" was "Wow!" This book teaches parents how to effectively regain control of their family when dealing with a child or teen that is angry and disruptive. Changing how a parent interacts with their child is a key to success. The book is written very concisely and organized in a manner that will make it easy for parents to follow, in spite of there being many steps in the process. There are also appendices that contain charts for parent
ReviewTheBook.com - Lauri C. Coates
Kids-raising them and caring for them can be pretty challenging. Add a psychiatric label or behavioral problem such as ADD, ADHD, bi-polar disorder, oppositional defiance, etc., and parenting can become what seems like a hopeless and insurmountable chore. Dr. Gibson has worked with families of angry children for many years. He has developed an innovative and proven technique in the form of a self help program he calls PACT (Parenting Angry Children and Teens). The author introduces us to Spike a
