Positive Strategies to Teach Self-Control and Prevent Violence
Daniel L. Daly and Michael Sterba

Angry, aggressive or violent youth threaten the well-being of themselves, other children and carers 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 behaviour.

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

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

An enclosed CD-ROM allows the printing of skill sheets to use as checklists, make notes and list resources as you counsel individual families.
