“Anger Control Game, The”, The. (PTG 071). Ages 8+ with 2 players.
by Berthold Berg, Ph.D
The Anger Control Game teaches children the skills they need for effective anger control. It is particularly helpful in treating conduct-disordered children or those with temper control problems.
Based on cognitive-behavioral principles, The Anger Control Game focuses on six skills related to anger control: empathizing with the victims; distinguishing between aggressive and nonaggressive acts; using self-statements to diffuse anger; generating and evaluating alternatives to aggression; identifying feelings underlying anger; and evaluating the opinions of others.
An Anger Control Inventory (included) helps you determine which skills a child needs to develop. Usually played by the therapist and one or more children, the game can also be played in the classroom.
Ages 8+ with 2 players
