Workshop Description

Anger problems in children and adolescents are quite common and are associated with such adverse outcomes as externalizing behavior problems, depression, anxiety, suicidality, peer rejection/victimization, poor school performance, increased health problems and adolescent substance abuse. Therefore, mental health clinicians need to have an understanding of the nature of child anger problems and the key components of effective treatment for it. This workshop provides an understanding of common etiological factors associated with anger problems in children and presents key components of treatment for anger problems in children including research pertaining to psychopharmacological interventions and non-pharmacological interventions.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learners will be able to explain the “anatomy of anger” and developmental course of anger problems and their relationship with psychiatric disorders.
  2. Learners will be able to translate the “anatomy of anger” into effective treatment strategies to help children with anger problems.
  3. Learners will be able to build a repertoire of practical techniques that can facilitate treatment of children with anger problems.
