Review quote

Starving the Anger Gremlin for Children Aged 5-9 is a high quality programme with innovative, fun and age-appropriate materials to support young children to manage their emotions successfully. It is flexible enough to be used with groups and whole classes as well as in one-to-one sessions with children with varying levels of anger issues, including those with complex needs. I envisage schools, parents and children benefiting greatly from using this structured approach to cognitive behavioural therapy and I look forward to its use in our school. An excellent resource for every primary school! -- Andrew Truby, Headteacher at St Thomas of Canterbury School, Sheffield, UKshow more
