Overview

This comprehensive guide presents the Anger Coping Program, an empiric ally supported group intervention for 8-12 year olds with anger and ag gression problems. Controlled clinical research has demonstrated this program to reduce teacher- and parent-directed aggression; improve on- task behavior in the classroom; and enhance participants' verbal asser tion and compromise skills, social competence, and academic achievemen t. In one clearly written volume, the authors provide the latest knowl edge base on childhood aggression, the cognitive-behavioral principles underlying their approach, instructions for setting up and running th e program, and a session-by-session treatment manual. Included are det ailed guidelines for monitoring intervention outcomes and successfully duplicating the program across multiple settings. Many helpful exampl es enhance the practical utility of the book, as do reproducible teach er handouts, child self-report forms, and parent letters in English an d Spanish.
