Scenarios illustrate ten ways kids can cool off whenever an angry situation leaves them ready to explode, boil over, or burn up. In “Stop So You Can Think,” they learn they can 1) freeze, 2) count to ten, or 3) walk away. In “Use Your Words,” they can 4) ask a question, 5) state how they feel, 6) write down how they feel, or 7) talk silently to themselves. In “Get Busy,” the many suggestions include 8) jump rope, 9) draw a picture, or 10) stand on your head.

Workshop comes complete with master copies of the worksheets, discussion questions, suggestions for using the workshop, and an extensive bibliography.
