Anger is an intrinsic part of the human experience. So rather than telling young people not to be angry, adults should instead teach them how to express angry feelings in constructive ways.

Learn to recognise the three counterproductive styles of anger expressions in children, and teach them to gravitate towards the most constructive style with How to Be Assertive. This training course comprises a series of four short videos explaining the neuroscience behind anger and outlining the practical skills adults can teach to children. Covering a variety of techniques, from regulation practices to sensory-based strategies, these videos offer the ultimate toolkit to move a young person from every counterproductive style of anger expression, be it aggression, passivity or passive aggression, to assertiveness, the most constructive form.
