Working With Aggressive Youth

Angry, aggressive, or violent youth threaten the well-being of themselves, other children, and caregivers in any setting – schools, foster care, group homes, or mental health facilities. They may need medication and therapy to treat their problems, but they also must learn how to control negative thoughts and emotions without turning to aggressive behavior.

Professionals learn how to build good relationships with youth and teach them prosocial behavior. Also offered are sample treatment plans to address both proactive and reactive aggression in youth and guidelines on how to promote a safe environment for the children in your care.

Included is a social skills chart that can be used as an easy reference guide by caregivers as they teach new skills to replace old aggressive behaviors. The chart shows which skills work best with specific types of behaviors.

This book can help teachers, school counselors, social workers, probation officers, psychologists, foster parents, child care staff, and administrators teach angry youth how to calm down, use self-control strategies, and solve problems in positive ways.
