Anger is neither good nor bad-it is simply an emotion. However, learning to respond to angry feelings in healthy and productive ways is an important life skill that transfers to the world of work.
- Assertion training is a powerful way to manage anger.
- Mindfulness is another great tool in your anger management tool box.
- Angry reactions often mask deeper feelings like fear or embarrassment.
- Assertion skills should be taught to all students. Some may require a Tier 2 intervention, such as a small group, to teach anger management skills.
- Second Step has a K-8 curriculum, and there is a section on emotion management. The Zones of Regulation program is great. I use it with elem students, but you could tweak it to work with older kids.
