A valuable resource,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Starving the Anger Gremlin: A Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Workbook on Anger Management for Young People (Gremlin and Thief CBT Workbooks) (Paperback)
We bought this as part of a program to assist an autistic young adult to understand emotions. Although it's not specifically aimed at this, we found it benefitial and were impressed for a number of reasons.
The book comes across as friendly and accessible, it's not too thick, no realms of text or intimidating formality. There are spaces for writing and drawing your own responses and even for drawing your own 'Anger Gremlin' which lets readers use their own creativity and expression as they work through the book.
There seems to be a purposeful direction throughout the book, using a CBT approach, so it doesn't come across as 'wishy washy' or as pop-psychology and it's presented using some visual, as well as verbal, content (e.g. an anger 'remote control') which might help visual thinkers.
It's a useful and down-to-earth book for young people or some young adults who may still benefit from its approach.
