The Anger Control Game
- 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
- 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.
- Usually played by the therapist and one or more children, the game can also be played in the classroom
- Ages 8 and up
