The Anger Control Workbook

The Anger Control Workbook
by McKay and Rogers
(For Young Adults and their Parents)

The Anger Control Workbook offers a new and highly effective
approach to anger control that gives you the tools you need to manage anger
in your day-to-day life. You’ll get a deeper understanding of how anger affects
all areas of your life—both physically and emotionally—and within a few weeks feel
the benefits of controlling destructive anger. This workbook shows you how to
practice new coping behaviors that allow you to gain control in anger-stimulating
situations. Throughout, the techniques are streamlined and presented in a clear,
step-by-step format, including numerous exercises and worksheets. It’s arranged to
make it as easy as possible to put together a program tailored to your own personal
obstacles and triggers.
Scholarly and empirically based, this market-leading text gives students what
they need to understand using the principles and practices of applied behavioral
management in the classroom. The content is presented clearly, in a friendly,
accessible–even fun–manner. The eighth edition uses classroom-based examples and
practices firmly grounded in research. Content is presented in the order of
decision-making by a teacher who has a student exhibiting challenging behavior
in class or a student who needs to execute a behavior-change project. The text
covers identifying target behavior, collecting and graphing data, functional
assessment, experimental design, arranging antecedents and consequences,
generalizing behavior change and discusses the importance of ethical
considerations in using applied behavior analysis in the classroom.
In this book, the author translates years of experience working
with students with Asperger Syndrome and social-communication difficulties.
The essence of this resource: 70 of the skills that most commonly cause
difficulty for individuals with autism spectrum disorders and social-communication
problems. Each skill is presented with a reproducible skill handout, as well as
activity sheets listing ways teachers and parents can demonstrate, practice
and reinforce the skill in the classroom and at home.
The Autism Acceptance Book is an interactive, educational,
and character-building book that introduces children to the
challenges faced by people with autism while also supporting
their personal journey toward appreciating and respecting
people's differences.
This book offers educational information, conversation-starters,
and engaging exercises that invite children to "walk in someone
else's shoes" as they learn to treat others the same ways they
would like to be treated themselves.

Like the bestselling first edition, this new edition
of Activity Schedules will show thousands
of parents and service providers how to use this teaching
tool to help children and adults successfully engage in
self-directed and purposeful activities.

This book describes scripts that parents
and teachers can use to help children learn
to initiate conversation, thereby improving
communication. The authors have successfully
used scripts and script-fading techniques based
on their clinical observations and research,
and founded on applied behaviour analysis principles.
