Fun CBT workbook to help children understand and manage their anger
Kate Collins-Donnelly has worked as a therapist, psychologist, criminologist and anger management consultant based in the UK for many years. She presently runs a successful independent consultancy practice which provides cognitive behavioural therapy, counselling, coaching and training, and is head of the Psychological and Criminological Research Division. She is the author of several books for children and young people published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers, including Banish Your Body Image Thief, Banish Your Self-Esteem Thief and a range of titles in her Starving the Gremlin series.
Starving the Anger Gremlin for Children Aged 5-9 is a high quality programme with innovative, fun and age-appropriate materials to support young children to manage their emotions successfully. It is flexible enough to be used with groups and whole classes as well as in one-to-one sessions with children with varying levels of anger issues, including those with complex needs. I envisage schools, parents and children benefiting greatly from using this structured approach to cognitive behavioural therapy and I look forward to its use in our school. An excellent resource for every primary school! -- Andrew Truby, Headteacher at St Thomas of Canterbury School, Sheffield, UK
