If you are a parent hoping to help a child with anger issues, this is probably not the best book for you. It is basically a series of lesson plans designed for teachers/counselors to use when teaching students about anger and constructive ways to manage their anger.
OTOH, I do plan to adapt a few of the lessons for my family. There are a few useful stories and worksheets that could reinforce some of the messages I am trying to get through to my children, such as: using "cold water" words to diffuse someone else's anger; figuring out "what lit the fuse" for an outburst of anger; slowly escalating your words "using your muscles" to explain when someone is bothering you, rather than exploding all at once; and coming up with "safe ways" to express anger, among others.
My only difficulty was that I was a school where most of the children had to have many concepts and words explained to them, as they are just not exposed to the type of thinking involved with the activities. Made the book that much more an important tool.
I really feel that people working with children exhibiting anger, should review this book to understand how anxiety might look depending on the child. Research has shown that many angry children (and adults) reach that behavior from anxiety that keeps building up until they need to address it some way.
