Featuring a wealth of familiar and easy-to-learn games, it is designed to foster successful anger management strategies for children aged 5-12.

Review quote

Anger Management Games for Children is a practical guide with clear and explicit theoretical underpinnings that would be useful for all those supporting the emotional development of primary school aged children... As a psychologist it was refreshing to see a solution-focused approach being used to anger management, with an emphasis on facilitators reflecting on their practice and their own emotional needs... This is an incredibly useful and practical resource for those setting out to successfully use games in anger management work with children. -- Debate Adults are encouraged to use the games mindfully, making sure they are aware of the possible effects exploring sensitive issues with vulnerable children. Ideas for reflection after each activity prompt children to make sense of the feelings generated by the game they have played. The games are simple to play and clearly explained, with symbols indicating the time required and the recommended age. The games range from five to 60 minutes' duration, and mostly require no extra resources, which make them an invaluable resource for any adult who works with children aged 5-12. -- The Sign There are many good ideas here that can be dipped in and out or added to your current repertoire ideas. -- NASEN Special This handbooks is designed to help adults understand and manage children's anger. It includes games and activities that encourage children aged between five and 12 to express their emotions in a healthy way. -- Children and Young People Now Deborah M Plummer's practical guide is packed full of easy-to-learn games that will help teachers to understand and manage children's anger. -- Junior Education Education Plus This book is divided into two parts. The first explores the theory around anger, with chapters on understanding anger: why games are used to support healthy anger management; structuring the emotional environment when a child is already angry, and self-reflection and self-care for workers. I really enjoyed the common sense approach the author uses in this section. She explains anger as a normal, healthy human emotion, and clearly describes the chemistry involved in experiencing and expressing anger. -- Children & Young People Now
