Become an expert in working with angry kids and teens
with 150 quick, easy, high-impact strategies,
worksheets, games, and exercises

Anger is one of the most natural emotions for kids to feel. And one of the toughest, most triggering, and most uncomfortable for us to work with.

But it's ok to be angry. And to express it. Because bottling it up just doesn't work.

The problem is that kids don't know "how" to be angry.

And when they don't, anger can ignite like a fiery storm, quickly turning into disrespect, aggression, defiance, and outbursts - clouding their world with frustration, stealing away moments of joy, and making your work with them feel impossible.

That's why I developed this course.

To share the secrets I've learned in working with over 2000 angry and defiant children and their families and give you the blueprint to teach kids and teens how to be angry in healthy ways that will serve them their entire lives…

…and make working with them less stressful and more rewarding for you than ever before.

I've included a complete toolbox of over 150 quick, easy, high-impact strategies along with printable worksheets, games, and exercises you can start using right away to:
  • End power struggles at home and school
  • Reduce and prevent angry outbursts, aggression, and violence
  • Cultivate emotional intelligence, communication, and problem-solving skills
  • Help kids trust and value adults
  • Offer healthier alternatives to angrily shutting down or lashing out
  • And much more!

PLUS this course is so comprehensive you can become a Certified Specialist in Child and Adolescent Anger Management (CSAM-CA) upon completion at no additional cost.

Healthy anger management is the best gift you can give the kids you work with (and yourself).
