I won this book from Goodreads.
This is an excellent book. New Harbinger publishes a lot of useful and interesting books. As someone pursuing graduate degrees in counseling/psychology, I would love to have more of their books, as well as other books by Mark Purcell. They are very useful for reference in class papers and will be useful in my professional career after graduation. I would recommend Marc Purcell's and other New Harbinger books and/or other resources for anyone pursuing degrees in t

This is a good book including different activities that help teens learn about different types of anger as well as how the seeds of anger are planted. Several of the activities focus on self-reflection and acceptance. The activities help teens learn about how to identify and respond to triggers. I sometimes have trouble convincing teens that mindfulness is worth learning. The activities are easy to rearrange and you can focus first on activities that are of more interest to the teens first.

This book is a great tool when working with teens that have anger issues. Mark C. Purcell has definitely spent time with teenagers who have difficulties with anger and it shows. He has strategies in the book as well as worksheets.

I would recommend it to anyone who has a teen in their life who might need a little help in how to deal with anger.

I won this book in a giveaway by Goodreads. I'm always excited to receive books that allow me some insight to help me with my children. This book was so awesome in that it was a workbook for teens. My oldest is a tween, but this book was still applicable and useful for her. It was awesome!
