Anger Coping (AC)

​​​​Anger Coping (AC) is a school-based group intervention that focuses on developing anger management skills. Anger Coping aims to equip students with the social processing and behavioral skills needed to reduce impulsive and reactive aggressive responses to anger. Students in Anger Coping will learn skills such as: the anger continuum, understanding physiological responses to anger, connection between thoughts-feelings-behavior, social problem solving, and self-calming techniques. Anger Coping is designed to be used in the elementary and middle school setting for the 3rd through 8th grades. This one day training will equip clinicians working in schools to facilitate the Anger Coping program. The training includes role plays and hands-on practice of specific Anger Coping components.
