SmartHelp is a unique approach which utilizes a child s learning strengths and draws on the most up–to–date brain–behavior research findings. SmartHelp for Good n Angry Kids provides the reader with an innovative tool for determining a child s individual learning strengths, and for pairing this information with specific, carefully crafted activities that teach the child about anger and its appropriate expression.

The book features workbook activities divided into the eight individual learning styles: Logical–Mathematical, Bodily–Kinaesthetic, Intrapersonal, Interpersonal, Musical–Rhythmic, Visual–Spatial, Verbal–Linguistic, and Naturalist.

Each activity is then divided into three crucial areas for successfully managing angry behavior: cognitive, affective, and behavioral.

SmartHelp is a vital supplement to standard psychotherapeutic approaches such as play therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, behavioral therapy, family therapy and traditional anger–management techniques.
