Teen Anger Management

Teen Anger Management Group

For: Adolescents (ages 14-17) who would like to reduce the negative outcomes of their anger, particularly when those outcomes have included the involvement of law enforcement, legal actions or family conflict.

Structure: This is an "open" group, where participants may start the group at the next session.

Goals: By the end of the program, participants will be able to:

1. learn about their personal anger style and how it leads to problematic anger.
2. learn to recognize distorted thinking patterns that promote problematic anger and the relationships between thoughts, feelings, and behavior.
3. learn immediate avoidance, escape, and problem-solving strategies to de-escalate and disarm the physiological arousal associated with anger.
4. practice new communication styles to more accurately express their own thoughts and feelings.
5. develop a relapse prevention plan tailored to their own high-risk anger-provoking situations and share them with their group for feedback.
6. practice their relapse prevention plans to reduce recidivism when applicable.
