Description

Today’s children and teens feel overwhelmed, time crunched and stressed out by social media, screen time, and an uncertain and often frightening world. These stressors can lead to frustration and the very natural emotion of anger.

But anger can quickly turn into disrespect, aggression, defiance, and outbursts when young people are unable to cope; sabotaging school performance, peer relationships, and family functioning.

Whether you’re a therapist, educator, counselor, social worker or any professional who works with children and adolescents, it’s essential for you to be properly equipped to work with angry, oppositional and aggressive behavior.

Dr. Jeffrey Bernstein is a licensed psychologist and best-selling author who has worked with over two thousand angry and defiant children and their families over the last 32 years.  Dr. Bernstein has appeared on the Today Show and is the author of several publications on anger and defiance.

Watch him in this Online Certification Training as he gives you the high-impact skills, reliable tools and proven strategies you need to help children and teens with anger issues manage this overpowering emotion. Dr. Jeff will give you detailed step-by-step guidance and walk you through specific real-life scenarios related to family, school and peer relationships so you can:

  • End power struggles at home and school
  • Reduce and prevent angry outbursts, aggression and violence
  • Get teens to think and reflect before reacting
  • Cultivate emotional intelligence, communication and problem-solving skills
  • Help kids trust and value adults
  • Offer healthier alternatives to angrily shutting down or lashing out

Best of all, you can become a Certified Specialist in Child and Adolescent Anger Management (CSAM-CA) upon completion of this course – letting families,schools, agencies or your employer know that you’ve taken the time and effort to effectively work with angry, oppositional and aggressive behavior.  Visit www.evergreencertifications.com/csamca for professional requirements.

Sign up today, add valuable skills and credentials to your resume, and make a difference in the lives of children and teens!
