Young People and Anger Management

This training offers teachers, trainers or youth support workers a framework and practical approach to delivering anger management sessions to young people. Delegates will develop an understanding of how anger is triggered and experienced by young people and use this understanding to feed into exercises and discussions for delivery in a group or one-to-one support context.
