This first addition of this workbook builds on the “Keeping Your Cool” workbook series that has been in use since 1996. Taking into consideration the developmental challenges of adolescence, it provides five empirically-supported anger management strategies that can be employed by boys and girls, ages 12-17, to help them cope with a variety of anger-arousing situations. Whereas the original “Keeping Your Cool” Workbook relied heavily on sports-related situations, this new edition has a wider range of appeal for adolescents, with new attention to developmental, gender, and diversity issues. The workbook addresses not only the anger issues experienced by boys, but also the social aggression that characterizes the anger experienced by girls at that age. It also helps adolescents refocus on how they can better take charge of their lives and be the best person they can be. Attention is also paid to specific anger-arousing situations that are experienced by minorities.
