This book can help teachers, school counsellors, social workers, probation officers, psychologists, foster parents, child care staff, and administrators teach angry youth how to calm down, use self-control strategies, and solve problems in positive ways. Professionals learn how to build good relationships with aggressive youth and teach them pro-social behaviour to diffuse aggression and prevent violence.

Aggression and aggression theories are defined, the Boys Town Model is described and proven teaching methods are offered. Research data shows that kids who receive treatment based on the Boys Town Model get better and on the path to success with positive behaviour support. Sample treatment plans are given to address both proactive and reactive aggression in youth. Included is a social skills chart that shows which skills work best with specific types of behaviours. Charts are an easy reference guide for caregivers to teach new skills that replace inappropriate teen agression.
