Review

From the Publisher

I'm Not Bad, I'm Just Mad is designed to help children with anger control problems develop better emotional and behavioral control. The fifty activities teach children how to identify the things that get them angry, how to be better problem solvers, how to talk about their frustration rather than act out, and much more. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Customer Reviews

Very helpful for individual and group sessions with kids.

Like, "Hot Stuff to Help Kids Chill Out", this book has great thought behind it but I feel like it just gave my son the wrong idea.
Lynz
This book is a great resource for psychologists and teachers alike.

I am an elementary school counselor, and I like to print out copies of pages from the book, trim them down, and staple them together, making mini workbooks for my students and I to discuss and complete during individual counseling sessions. The kids love having something tangible to work on, and it facilitates discussion easily. If you make the little booklets I do, it's also something for the kids to take with them after meeting. I love the practicality of the pre-made lessons. I would definitely recommend this book and any of the others by Lawrence Shapiro in this set!

I work with 5th-8th grades in a city school, and this book (although well-written) is largely not useful for me. The activities are written at a reading level far above what most of my kids are comfortable with, except for some advanced 8th graders, but the tone is too childish for them.

As a child therapist, I found this to be a helpful tool in giving my kiddos a tool to concretely work with and to add to my repertoire of aids to help them deal with anger issues in a fun way. For the price, this is a great tool!

Very helpful for individual and group sessions with kids. Other therapists have came and borrowed my book for ideas to work with their clients on. Helps break down anger and other emotions for children 12 years old and under.
