This educational game provides an enjoyable way to teach anger management skills to middle school students. It can be used independently or to enhance the In Control. program, also by Dr. Kellner. Before playing the game, students learn language, concepts, and strategies for managing their anger. During the game, they learn to recognise their anger, stop and think before they behave inappropriately, and then use an appropriate anger management strategy to calm down and stay in control. The game can be played by large or small groups in schools and other settings. Includes 15 bingo cards, 50 calling cards, plastic tokens, and a 26-page facilitator’s guide.
