Today’s teenagers struggle with issues such as anger, depression and anxiety, grief, substance abuse, friendship and body image problems. In fact, research suggests that at any given time around 10 per cent of students will be suffering from a mental health issue that directly impacts on their education and health. But by using the simple techniques of Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) (the subject of Dr Russ Harris’s bestselling The Happiness Trap), they can develop effective, flexible coping skills that will build their mental resilience and equip them to deal with life’s challenges.
By following Andy on his journey of self-discovery, as he learns how to stand up to his own emotional Beast, I Just Get So... Angry! teaches adolescents these all-important techniques in an easily accessible way. At the end of Andy’s story, they’ll feel more confident about tackling their own problems and changing how they view the world.
