Seeing the Need Behind and Responding to Anger and Aggression in Children and Young People

Anger and Aggression in children and young people can be challenging to respond to and can escalate
easily when the child/ young person is left feeling unheard, misunderstood, and uncontained. Our
workshop aims to support practitioners to recognise anger as a secondary feeling (it’s the gatekeeper
of sadness, fear, and injustice) and aggression as a survival strategy. We will look at strategies to
change our own thinking about anger and in turn our response, with opportunities to develop some

strategies to help us stay curious, reflective and in control.

This training is suitable for school staff, health professionals, Social Workers, Residential Care staff
and Youth Workers.
Within this workshop you will:
 Consider what is the purpose of anger.
 Explore what is the difference between healthy and unhealthy anger.
 Recognise the impact that anger has on a child or young person’s mind and body.
 Explore how to recognise what makes us and others feel anger and how to manage these
 Consider the consequences of anger.
 Provide tools for professionals to help respond to and soothe/ calm a young person in a
respectful and safe way.
 Develop skills, techniques, and confidence in supporting children and young people who may
be demonstrating anger and aggression.
