Anger Management (Child and Young People’s Services)

Address: Child and Young People’s Services, St. Luke’s Hospital, Pietà in front of the ex-emergency department.

Opening Hours: Monday to Saturday from 07:00am till 15:00pm.

The anger management group therapy is aimed at young people aged 8 to 18 years old. The goal of the group is to equip children and adolescents with a diagnosis of oppositional defiant disorder, ADHD, conduct disorder etc., with necessary skills to be able to better control their anger outbursts in different contexts. The professional carries out individual screening sessions with both child/adolescent and parents/caregivers. The parents/caregivers are invited to an information meeting in order to provide information regarding the programme and the skills used in order to further support the young person in controlling their anger. The group’s weekly sessions are held for 7 weeks (1 hour per week).
