a practical approach to helping adolescents cope with anger. One
particularly compelling feature of the book is the assistance it
provides to parents of angry teens. This dichotomous teen/parent
approach will help professionals work therapeutically with both the
angry teen and parent to understand and master anger management
skills. Adolescent Volcanoes is a must have book for any
professional working with youth who struggle with anger. --

(This) very readable book (...) is clearly laid out with diagrams, food for thought sections and highlighted at the end of the chapters of the key concepts covered... Throughout the book there are handouts which cover a variety of aspects of the discussion... I found that this book also provides some interesting discussion points and reflections which would be valuable for practitioners to reflect upon their own experiences for practitioners to reflect upon their own experiences of anger... The key strength of the book is in recognising alongside our clients that feeling angry is OK but it's what you do with it that matters... It's definitely a book to return to and be explored further especially with others within a support group too. -- Tiffany Louise Allen, PTUK Accredited Play Therapist, Clinical Supervisor and Editor * Play for Life *
