CBSE has recently instructed all the affiliated schools to focus on the importance of Anger free zones. Anger Management as a skill area for teachers and administrators in our schools has long been neglected. In the wake of several high-profile acts of school violence, as well as the media emphasis that accompanied them, there is a consensus among educators that comprehensive science-based anger management programs could have a positive impact on the total school climate.
Over the past few years, researchers have identified early indicators of violent behavior. The early indicators—deficient skills in empathy, impulse control, social problem solving, anger management, and assertiveness— have been consistently correlated with adolescent and adult antisocial behavior.
As per research, there is a list of 20 identified behaviors that may predispose a child to violence, and two behaviors from the list are directly related to anger or the lack of anger management skills (To get the complete details on these behaviors and other skills, WhatsApp us @ 7982466300). Educators know that when children have tantrums and uncontrolled angry outbursts and regularly make violent threats to others when angry, some action is needed. To neglect such behavior without action may put this child and others around him at great risk.
What is Anger Management in schools?
Anger management is to assist people in learning how to reduce the emotional and physiological arousal that anger causes. The program’s goals should never be aimed at the impossible task of eliminating anger, but to learn to control its effects on people and their environment.
Studies indicate that anger management techniques can be taught effectively to young children, adolescents, and adults as well. Teaching anger management strategies can help create anger in free school environments.
The emotional and physiological stimulation that both precedes and accompanies a person’s angry reaction is unique to each human being. It is necessary therefore that any adult dealing with an angry child be equipped to help that young person identify the specific emotional and physiological cues that allow him or her to regain control of the anger and to curb a violent response.
In some more advanced societies, it is observed that, rather than waiting until the violence has occurred and then devoting increased resources a more effective approach would be to redirect resources to the implementation of violence prevention programs, particularly for young children and pre-adolescents.
Educators and parents can reduce the chance of violent behavior in youngsters by enabling them to arrive at nonviolent solutions to problems by focussing on the following skills:
- Stress management, Assertiveness
- Anger and impulsive behavior control
On the contrary, if an angry student is left alone to deal with feelings of hostility, the result will be:
- Verbal and physical assaults
- Interpersonal conflict and poor academic performance
