Do you often find yourself in trouble because of anger?
Do you react to situations and later regret how you behaved? Does your
anger cause problems with other people? Are you tired of letting anger
control you?

Between family life, friends, and the pressures of
school, there's no doubt that it's stressful being a teenager. And while
anger is a natural human emotion, different people handle it
differently. Some hold in their anger and let it build, some lash out
with hurtful words, some resort to fighting, and some just explode. If
you've noticed yourself beginning to take out your frustrations on the
people you love most―your parents, brothers or sisters, and friends―it
may be time to make a change.

The Anger Workbook for
Teens
includes thirty-seven exercises designed to show
you effective skills to help you deal with feelings of rage without
losing it. By completing just one ten-minute worksheet a day, you'll
find out what's triggering your anger, look at the ways you react, and
learn skills and techniques for getting your anger under control. You'll
develop a personal anger profile and learn to notice the physical
symptoms you feel when you become enraged, then find out how to calm
those feelings and respond more sensitively to others. Once you fully
understand your anger, you'll be better prepared to deal with your
feelings in the moment and never lose your cool.

The activities
in this workbook will help you notice things that make you angry, handle
frustrating situations without getting angry, and effectively
communicate your feelings. Most of all, these activities can help you
learn to change how you respond to anger. Change is not easy, but with
the right frame of mind and set of skills, you can do it. This book is
designed to help you understand how both your mind and body respond to
anger, how you can handle this anger constructively, and relaxation
techniques for dealing with anger in a healthy way, so that you can not
only control your anger, but your life as a whole.

Maybe pre-teens.
I am a mental health counselor working with adolescents aged 13-18. After looking through these books (anger and anxiety by the same author), I don't think it's fair to market this to teens. My clients were offended by the youthfulness of the exercises and would not even humor me to engage in the worksheets. As a clinician I can look at the workbooks and see that they do have good stuff in them that is worth discussion, but the actual worksheets/workbook are more appropriate for pre-teens 10-12ish. Just my opinion though, it's possible it's just my particular population/region.

Great for starting conversations.
I use this workbook to springboard conversations with my 12 year old, who is prone to impulsive, emotional and angry outbursts. We do not write in the book, and while we started out just going through it sequentially module by module, sometimes we skip around if I see a particular topic that relates to an issue we are having at the moment. For this purpose, this book is perfect for us. It is a little cheesy here or there, and there have been times where my son and I can't help but stop and make fun of something hokey in it, but then we are laughing together and no one is angry, so it is still a win in my book. Older "sophisticated" teenagers might find this workbook to be dumb if just handed off as an independent exercise in anger management.

Must have self awareness
I purchased this book to use with middle school and high school students. It was way about their cognitive ability as well as their self awareness. This book has a lot of writing and self reflecting. If someone ONLY has an anger issue, this could be the book they need. I would look for another resource if in addition to anger there is a cognitive or writing deficit, conduct issues, or language issues. I am going to keep my copy since it does have great activities and different presentation of material than other books I have. You'd just need to know how to differentiate the work.

Good resource for counselors or teachers working with older kids
It is sometimes very difficult to engage teenagers who are referred for anger management counseling. A workbook with relatively easy, straightforward exercises is a useful tool to start them communicating and thinking about their bad feelings and sometimes worse behaviors before rapport has built. I recommend this book to anyone working with teenagers. I've even used a couple of the exercises with siblings and other family members so they can share feelings, etc. and see how different people see the same situations differently.

Great Purchase!
This series of teen workbooks is one of the most valuable resources I have found for counseling my at risk teenage students! I purchased the anxiety, anger, self esteem and overcoming negative feelings handbooks and I was honestly nervous. So many of the tools avaliable to address teen needs are dated and are taken as nothing but a joke by those they are designed to help. My 6th-12th graders happily and often eagerly engage in the questionnaires and activities in these books! They also have told me that they feel like they really do help. That in and of itself is worth it to me!

Love this series of books
I have used the ADHD and the Emotional Health books from this series and they all are wonderful. I homeschool so I needed something that was very user friendly, could be used for a daily journal activity, and which did not require a lot of time to go over the concepts. This is something they van do on their own and then you go over their answers and discuss them. I have found it very helpful for them to understand themselves and their feelings and for me to better understand them as well.

Wish it worked even a little, but...
See picture - this is what happened when my son was upset and found his workbook. Do not recommend.

Get this!
Another great resource! I work with youth in schools and this book (and the whole collection of these books) has been incredibly helpful in helping the children understand themselves and where their emotions are coming from, and then helps them apply this understanding in guided work that leads them to greater control over themselves. Wonderful!

Many helpful exercises -- but I'm not thrilled by the sequence presented
Maybe it's me, but it seems that the initial exercises would have been better placed toward the end of the book. (But, I tend to pick and choose based on my client's needs anyway.) During one session, I opted to talk through the questions. I began by reading the introductory scenario which featured friends pulling a prank involving a student's locker at school. My client was very animated and said that was exactly like what happened to him. The questions that followed lead to a very good session.

I think the scenarios presented will resonate will with many teenagers -- which is nice because so many exercises allegedly meant for teens are too childish or downright sappy. It's definitely worth investing in if you are going to be seeing teens (particularly relatively high-functioning teens with relative normal anger issues). If your client base can afford to buy individual copies and are invested enough in the process to do the homework, the book would make for a good tool for a group.

Pages have fallen out
The information is good. But, the quality of the book itself is not. I just started looking through it a couple of weeks ago and Te pages have completely fallen out from inside of the book.

I like the workbooks and find them useful
I've used this workbook, as well as others by these authors. I like the workbooks and find them useful; however, the stories and some of the activities are a bit "corny" and irrelevant for high school teens that I work with. I usually just skim the stories and at times have skipped over entire activities because the activities are elementary-like, and the high schoolers I work with don't take them seriously. Overall, though, these workbooks are very helpful and open up a lot of conversations and help teens really think about their behaviors and how they approach them.

To complex for my students to grasp.
Too wordy for me. I guess I was looking for more of a short attention span self-help for teenagers. Looking for new ideas.

Resourceful
I like the ideas and suggestions this book provides you. Some of it though you can search the internet if you wanted to dig on your own time if you had the time and patience.

I work in a domestic violence shelter as a youth advocate and recently reached out to New Harbinger Publications to donate some of their workbooks for teens to help us patch the gap in our teen resources. They were amazingly generous in their response and because of that we now are able to provide teens who come through the shelter with this information and these exercises to help them learn about their own emotions and learn techniques for regulating them and caring for themselves.

This is one I work in a domestic violence shelter as a youth advocate and recently reached out to New Harbinger Publications to donate some of their workbooks for teens to help us patch the gap in our teen resources.

This is one of the books New Harbinger Publications donated. I've been going through it to find activities with which to create a binder for teens coming into the shelter and I've found so many wonderful activities that hinge on teaching the reader emotional competence: how anger effects them and others, how they might have learned (or not learned) how to process anger, healthy ways of coping, moving toward controlling anger rather than it controlling them, etc. Honestly, it would have been a lovely resource to have in my own teenage years, or for my father to have access to.

One of the lovely things about this book is that so much of the information and so many of the activities are relevant to adults, too, even if they're tailored to a younger audience. The information is presented in a highly accessible way, and I anticipate the activities in the books to be useful not only to the teens in the shelter but to the adults as well. ...more

I read this and flagged the many great activities to use with my clients. The writing is clear and straightforward and worded in a way that even younger teens will be able to use it. I'm sure I will find this book very helpful with my clients that struggle with anger!

Not for my 10 year old....
I have to be honest, It just did not work for my 10 year old. The projects and/or lists that he has to come up with just will not keep his interest. I recently came across a "kindness" journal. Where he writes in it everyday. Each day it has him do some thinking on various community, family, personal related subjects. I feel that is most helpful so far. Can I return?
