There are too many kids with anger issues in society and this is proving to show difficulty in school, with peers, and in the home. A variety of behaviors are occurring, such as acting out, bullying, fighting, angry outbursts, destruction of objects, and harming self. Various forms of behavior often portrayed are: attention seeking, power, control, and revenge. This thesis will examine multiple types of anger and aggression, as well as play therapy techniques such as clay therapy, drawing and game play, role-play, and mutual storytelling that are useful to identify where anger stems from.
