Base 25 - Supporting Young People in Shaping their lives

Anger Management and young people

Anger is a normal, healthy emotion. However, it can be a problem if you find it difficult to keep it under control (NHS 2016). As young people transition through their teenage years, they can experience a range of emotions.  Anger is one of many of these emotions that at time can be justified but can also cause confusion and distress.  Anger can manifest itself into aggression, shouting, loosing control and other forms of negative behaviour.  There could be a range of reasons that underpin why a young person gets angry such as problems at home, school, unhappy thoughts or feelings, friendship breakdown, not feeling understood, not able to express oneself, confusion around sexuality or gender, experience of being bullied or abused.  It is important that anger problems are recognised so that support can be put in place to prevent further problems resulting from anger issues such as violence, self harm, addiction and other disorders (Young Minds 2016).

The Base 25 anger management programme is for children and young people but can be used for adults.  It is a structured programme that is tailored to meet the needs of the individual.  Referrals for anger management can be made using the referral form below.  Base 25 has an environmental policy and would request that referrals be made electronically to prevent the need to print. There is a cost for this service.
