Anger Management for Children & Teens
Are you having a hard time managing the angry outbursts of your child or your teen? Have you tried all sorts of solutions and not discovered anything that really seems to have the kind of traction that you need? Do you worry about what will happen to your son or daughter in the future, if they don’t learn how to better manage their own anger? These questions plague so many parents around the Lower Mainland and it can be hard to know where to turn.
At Jericho Counselling, we have several therapists who specialize in working with children and teens, who can help solve the problem of Anger Management with your daughter or son.
In some cases, this will involve teaching about emotional literacy which will allow for better management of all sorts of emotional responses, including anger. In other cases, we will help to improve communication and assertiveness skills which invite a different experience within the family, when conflict inevitably arises. We may explore the possibility of Anxiety or Depression, which can often manifest as Anger issues with children and youth. In all cases, we will teach young people about their responsibility when managing their angry feelings, so that they can change their relationship with these sensations and reduce the frequency of negative outbursts at home and out in the world. And we will often invite a parent in to learn more about the work the young person has done to address the concerns about anger, which dramatically increases the likelihood for success.
