Dr. Claudia Black’s comprehensive workbook designed for clinicians working with clients whose anger is preventing them from living healthy and productive lives.
Newly revised and updated, this clinical workbook is a valuable aid to mental health professionals with clients addressing serious anger issues. These difficulties may range from how they view and feel about themselves, to parenting skills, relationships, job performance, legal issues, and overall health. While some individuals are more motivated to change than others, the strategies in this book will assist in both motivation and change.
Some clients may be participating in an anger management group as a consequence of domestic violence or other illegal behaviors that have arisen from their inappropriate expression of anger. Others may be in individual, couples, or family therapy and their anger has been identified as a crucial clinical issue. The foundation of client assessment and intervention this book offers will be useful in working with all of these clients.
Anger Strategies is composed of seven sections with 42 sessions containing didactic information and reproducible handouts that can be used in a group or individual setting. Many of the strategies present ideas and formats for structured interventions. Written exercises, checklists, sentence stems, structured dialogues, and art activities are an integral part of this therapeutic technique.
