This comprehensive guide presents the Anger Coping Program, an empirically supported group intervention for 8-12 year olds with anger and aggression 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 assertion and compromise skills, social competence, and academic achievement. In one clearly written volume, the authors provide the latest knowledge base on childhood aggression, the cognitive-behavioral principles underlying their approach, instructions for setting up and running the program, and a session-by-session treatment manual. Included are detailed guidelines for monitoring intervention outcomes and successfully duplicating the program across multiple settings. Many helpful examples enhance the practical utility of the book, as do reproducible teacher handouts, child self-report forms, and parent letters in English and Spanish.
