Description

Many people with intellectual disabilities have difficulty managing feelings of anger. Anger Management is a complete training package for helping people with intellectual or physical disabilities deal with anger in constructive, effective ways.

The training programme consists of 12 fully-scripted sessions dealing with topics such as recognising feelings of anger, learning to relax and think calmly, and being assertive and handling problems competently. Each session follows a standard format, including introductions, reviews of previous sessions, and explanations. Photocopiable handouts, facilitator's script and evaluation sheets are provided for each session.

Designed specifically for people with intellectual disabilities, but suitable for people with physical disabilities too, this training package provides relevant and authoritative information and exercises.

It is a tried-and-tested resource which will provide effective strategies for anger management trainers, psychologists and counsellors.

Reviews

'Gulbenkoglu and Hagiliassis make a strong case for the need for anger management programs among disabled individuals with intellectual or communication disabilities, and they have also compiled a training package that may have clinical utility. Gulbenkoglu and Hagiliassis's text provides a perfect starting point for further research.'
- PsycCRITIQUES

'In terms of supporting people with acquired brain injuries the structured learning regime would for most people work well. Additionally the clearly scripted self management resources may well prove useful in delivering clear and precise coping strategies.'
- The Encephalitis Society

'The packaging covers such topics as feelings and anger, helpful and unhelpful ways of dealing with anger, learning to relax, thinking calmly, handling problems, speaking up for ourselves, and "putting it all together" in behavioural terms.'
- Book News

'This is an easy-to-read, structured, 12 session programme package. The session flowed well, following the constructs of cognitive-behavioural techniques, with a heavy emphasis on pictographs to aid understanding.'
- The Psychologist
