This fully revised and updated second edition of The Anger Workbook for Teens includes new skills and activities based in clinically proven treatments such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to help teens deal with negative thoughts without losing control.
Teens will learn:
- What’s triggering their anger
- Why they react the way they do
- How to be more aware of their thoughts and how they interact with them
- Skills and techniques for managing anger without losing their cool
Teens will also develop a personal anger profile, learn to notice the physical symptoms they feel when anger takes hold, and then calm those feelings and respond more sensitively to others.
This book can help teens understand how both mind and body respond to anger, and how they can handle this anger in more constructive ways.
“A super teen-friendly and highly effective guide for teens that is packed with quick-and-easy activities for teens to calm down and problem-solve when anger and other overwhelming emotions come their way. I highly recommend this essential book to every teen, parents of teens, and school systems.”

“This second edition of The Anger Workbook for Teens offers creative, interactive, and practical activities for all teens to work through their vast range of emotions. Each activity invites the reader to reflect on their experiences and who they are as they navigate this critical developmental stage of life. The workbook provides a supportive outlet for teenagers, and even highlights realistic and ‘doable’ coping strategies and skills for teenagers to incorporate into their daily life. I would highly recommend any teenager, parent, counselor, administrator, and anyone who cares about teenagers to consider reviewing the book and working through the activities.”
