Anger is an affective stress reaction to provocation events and involves both physiological and cognitive determinants. Anger is not necessarily accompanied by aggressive behavior, nor is aggressive behavior always driven by anger. However, for youth who are often impulsive with few emotion regulation skills, aggression often follows anger. Cognitive-Behavior Therapy for Anger in Youth is a 3-hour webinar that provides clinicians with an overview of cognitive-behavior therapy for anger. The webinar presents strategies to increase self-awareness, dampen physiologic arousal, and shift attributions that contribute to the anger response. The workshop presents guidelines for teaching a variety of interpersonal, communication and problem-solving skills to enable youth to manage anger in a variety of settings. Objectives:
Attendees will be able to describe the cognitive-behavioral model of reactive anger
Attendees will be able to describe somatic and cognitive skills to manage anger
Attendees will be able to describe interpersonal and problem-solving skills to manage anger.
