The Anger Workbook for Kids Helps Children Address Feelings

A young child using the Anger Workbook for Kids

After 12 years practicing as a mental health clinician specializing in children, Christina Kress says she noticed a lot of parents were bringing their children to Minnetonka Counseling with the same dilemma: Their children didn’t know how to process their anger.

Kress drew on her experience with past patients, as well as her background in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), to author The Anger Workbook for Kids: Fun DBT Activities to Help You Deal with Big Feelings and Get Along with Others, which aims to help 7 to 12 year olds learn to process the complex emotion of anger.
