Anger management: A group treatment program for people with mental retardation
This paper describes the development of anger management groups for people with moderate to severe mental retardation. The
group was based on work developed by Novaco (1976) and extended to people with mild mental retardation. Modifications to group
techniques, such as participants being accompanied by a support worker in the group and more effort to help participants label
emotions, were required for this more disabled group. An evaluation of the group is described and it was found that a reduction
in aggressive behavior occurred after group treatment. Suggestions are made for future efforts in this area.
