Description

Teen aggression and bullying is a problem that continues to grow, often disrupting our school, families, workplaces and communities. The causes of teen aggression and bullying vary from person to person and may include such factors as a teen having been exposed to physical or sexual abuse growing up; violent behavior witnessed in the home or neighborhood; violence in the media; socio-economic issues such as family poverty, need deprivation, unstable family environment, lack of family support and appropriate role models, and exposure to weapons. Teen aggression can take many forms including:

    • Bullying • Fighting • Gang Violence • Rape and molestation • Arson • Destruction of property • Cruelty to animals • Homicide • Indirect aggression such as gossiping or spreading cruel rumors • Shooting and Stabbing • Internet-based bullying

The Teen Aggression & Bullying Workbook combines two powerful psychological tools for the management of aggressive thoughts, feelings, and behaviors: self-assessment and journaling. It contains six separate sections that will help the participants learn more about themselves as well as how aggression impacts their lives:

    • Violence Motivation Scale helps individuals explore reasons they may act aggressively or violently toward other people. • Environmental Aggression Scale helps individuals identify the extent of their exposure to environmental violence and help them develop strategies to become more resilient. • Are You Being Bullied? Scale helps individuals assess whether or not they are being bullied, and if so, to what extent. • Are You a Bully? Scale helps individuals identify whether they are aggressive and/or bully others, and to what extent. • Bystander Behavior Scale helps individuals explore how they react and respond in bullying situations.

Also included is an eight-page section on depression and suicide with a detailed questionnaire, idea-prompting lists, and relevant journal questions designed to lead to productive in-depth discussions of how problems arise and how they can be solved. 115 pages
