Helping Adolescents Manage Frustration and Anger (Guest: Dave Wolffe)

Ask just about any counselor, social worker, clinician or Special Education teacher to identify the toughest challenge they face in helping youngsters improve interpersonal skills. Their response will be amazingly consistent: the management of frustration and anger.

Dave Wolffe, banking on over 35 years as a public school educator and counselor, shares a process that works: the Anger Management Power Program. This program builds on the premise of authentic communication and helps young people improve their behavior from the inside out. Interventions Dave calls “Anger Managers” are discussed in this interview.

Dave is a sought-after seminar leader and trainer on the subject of anger management with adolescents. He is an Adjunct Lecturer at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City, and he’s the founder of PEACE, Inc. (Peace Enhancement Attained through Collaborative Effort), a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting harmonious, peaceful relationships. Dave’s book is entitled, Peace: The Other Side of Anger. (26:30)

When Our Children Say, “I Hate You!” (Guest: Dr. Doug Riley)

No parent wants to hear their child say, “I HATE You!” The need to deal with a seriously upset son or daughter (or student), however, is very much a reality. It seems especially a reality in today’s high-pressure, warp-speed pace of life. How do we manage the youngster and the situation so as not to make it worse, and how do we get back to a more favorable state as quickly and as safely as possible?

Dr. Doug Riley speaks candidly with Dr. Sutton in this informative interview that draws on over 40 years of their collective experience as psychologists. There’s great value here, so listen in! (20:25)
