Join us for this engaging and highly educational workshop where therapists will gain a greater knowledge of how to help clients who struggle with anger through hands on activities, games, worksheets, and songs. Participants will learn to engage all kinds of children, those oppositional, resistant, and even those in denial of their anger, helping them work towards achieving their therapeutic goals. The training begins with helping clients with self-awareness, psychoeducation, and accountability and continues to shares ways about how to release and express anger, increase insight, and addresses coping skills. Parenting skills are also incorporated into the training since parents are an essential piece of the therapeutic process when working with angry children. The training concludes with songs and games that focus on helping children with impulse control, frustration tolerance, and working on patience.
