Anger is an intrinsic part of the human experience. So rather than telling young people not to be angry, adults should instead teach them how to express angry feelings in constructive ways.

How to Be Assertive is the perfect training course for parents and professionals working with young people who have benefited from the book by the same author, How to Be Angry. This training course comprises a series of four short videos explaining the neuroscience behind anger and outlining the practical skills adults can teach to children. Covering a variety of techniques, from regulation practices to sensory-based strategies, these videos offer the ultimate toolkit to move a young person from every counterproductive style of anger expression, be it aggression, passivity or passive aggression, to assertiveness, the most constructive form.

Press Reviews

  • Dr. Lori Desautels, Assistant Professor College of Education, Butler University

    Signe Whitson has created a powerful and accessible video series that discusses how "anger" is experienced in our nervous system. When children understand why they feel the ways they do, there is a sense of relief and empowerment that goes beyond the labels we traditionally integrate into the pathological models within the social and emotional paradigms.
