    Help students to develop their own intuition as to when they are feeling angry. By recognizing signs in themselves, they will be more able to implement appropriate methods of control.

    Sometimes we don't feel comfortable (or qualified) to talk to our angry students, or perhaps we just haven't got to know them well enough yet. This ready-made booklet can be given to a pupil for them to complete on their own. Not only does it give them food for thought, but it may also help you understand the source of their anger and their reactions.

    This in-depth document gives you an insight into why and how young people get angry. Whilst their is no definitive way to deal with an angry or aggressive child, you will find many ideas here. I particularly like the information regarding ways to talk to two angry students at a time when there is conflict.
