Overview

Temper and Tantrum Tamers is full of surprising interventions to convince angry, out-of-control, oppositional, defiant and violent children and youth that they must learn better ways of interacting with others. Full of unusual, colorful strategies to teach anger control to even resistant, oppositional and conduct disordered youth, this book has 20 lessons perfect for the classroom, office or counseling group. Lessons include: "Find Work with a Temper Like That," "Turn Down the Heat at Home," and "Outside Anger That Comes to School." This is one resource that you shouldn't do without if you work with angry or violent youth as it has the newest and best strategies for youngsters with the worst anger control problems. Many lessons are accompanied by handouts that are full of cartoons and engaging activities that facilitate the acquisition of new skills.

Handouts include: "Is There an Aggressive Face in the Mirror?," " Can an Adult Even Make It Through the Morning with a Temper Like That?," "What Really Causes Anger?," "The Top 6 Ways to Deny You Have a Problem with Aggression," "Can You Really Make a Living With a Temper Like That?," "Who Really Controls Your Fist, Mouth and Actions?," and "Can You Spot Aggressiveness Before It (Or You) Strikes?"

Most of the handouts rely on engaging cartoons that ease students into accepting information that they would normally resist. Especially designed to hold the interest and engage difficult, defiant and negative students, the handouts often can accomplish more change in students than conventional approaches such as talk, consequences and restrictions. The handouts use creative, unexpected ways to convince youth that they must reign in their temper to succeed. Motivation and attitude issues are also heavily covered.

Editorial Reviews

'I can't even balance my checkbook,' admits the fictional down-and-out star. A student who questions the value of school may be given a quiz on coping with an adult's typical day. ..School districts in Oregon like the approach well enough to invite Wells to conduct teacher training sessions.

Youth Today
...Breakthrough Strategies to Teach and Counsel Youth is geared toward mental health workers, foster parents and case managers. Each book offers step-by-step lesson plans and handouts. In particular, 'A Child's Guide to Surviving in a Troubled Family' gives some good tips on approaching difficult topics...
