Description: High performance cars can go from zero to sixty in just a few seconds. Anger can feel a lot like that for teens. One minute they are calm, but the next, something sets them on a course to speed out of control. Getting to anger’s edge too fast can get teens in trouble. Expert author Michael Tompkins offers tips and tricks to help stall anger and leave it by the side of the road. Teens will learn how to calm their body, derail thoughts that fuel anger and learn how to communicate and de-escalate situations.
Book Review: In a word, "Zero to 60" is simply remarkable. Featuring crisp examples and vivid illustrations, replete with vignettes and action plans written in authentic teen tones--and steeped in CBT and mindfulness traditions--it speaks directly, forcefully, and sensitively to adolescents with anger management issues. Capturing the real-life situations and inner dialogues that accompany teen anger and even rage, it is at once action-oriented and extremely positive. Five stars, highest recommendation.
