Many pupils experience difficulty in controlling their strong feelings and in managing conflict in both school and home settings. These two programmes (for different age groups) aim to help children and young people: * Avoid or manage situations of conflict * Understand that they can create change * Realise that it is possible to resolve difficulties. In this thoughtful approach to anger management, the authors suggest a teaching and learning model and use 'story' as the focus of pupil engagement. During the 10-session programme, participants will: * Understand the causes of anger in a variety of situations * Learn about physiological and behavioural aspects of anger * Rehearse coping strategies * Plan positive responses to provocative situations. Controlling Anger: A solution-focused approach for children provides eight stories to help pupils develop emotional literacy. The topics of the stories include fighting with friends, bullying, swearing humiliation and exclusion. The stories also reinforce some of the key themes and concepts introduced via the Primary National Strategy's SEAL Curriculum.
