Managing Anger and Challenging Behaviour

21/06/2022, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The pandemic and Covid related restrictions have been challenging for everyone. For some young people
this has resulted in increased tensions at home, school and out in the community leading to frustration,
difficulty expressing emotions and aggressive behaviour.

This introductory workshop aims to develop an understanding of how anger is triggered and experienced
by young people, how this can lead to aggressive and/or challenging behaviour and ways that youth
workers can help them to express feelings in more positive ways that don’t overwhelm and lead to
conflict. Using a mixture of theory, diffusion and anger management techniques, along with practical
skills that can be applied in youth work settings, this workshop is suitable for volunteers, part time and
full-time youth workers supporting young people aged 11-19 (up to 25 with additional needs).

• The basic principles of anger management theory and how this works in practice
• That everyone has ‘triggers’ that impact on how we cope with feelings of anger and frustration
• How to identify early warning signs and simple techniques to diffuse challenging situations
• Ways to build emotional literacy and encourage young people to name and express their
emotions rather than act them out.
