|dc.description.abstract||This study examined anger in children and adolescence and the use of psycho-educational group counseling in anger reduction. It was hypothesized that a six week psychoeducational anger management group would reduce the cognitive, behavioral, and emotional components of anger. A pre and post-test assessment was conducted using the Multi-dimensional School Anger Inventory (MSAI) on the effectiveness of psychoeducational group counseling across five subscales: Anger Experience, Hostility, Behavioral Expression, Destructive Expression, and Positive Coping. Findings indicated a positive change in all subscales with the exception of positive coping which resulted in a slight negative change. The study’s strengths and limitations were discussed as well as suggestions for future research. Implications for the counseling practices were also addressed.|
