“Kool It!” is ideal for anyone who has regular contact with young people including youth groups, charities, schools and Young Offending Service teams.
The innovative package, devised specifically by Altered Attitudes Ltd, interlinks theoretical and practical exercises designed to engage young people – and is a clear and dramatic move from the traditional mantra of ‘walk away and count to ten.’
It aims to teach young people that anger is not the problem, it’s how you choose to deal with it that can be the problem.
“Kool It!” emphasises that anger can be a force for good. Former South African president Nelson Mandela and Live Aid founder Bob Geldof both used their anger at injustice to achieve positive change.
“Kool It!” motivates and empowers young people by helping them learn a valuable lesson – there is nothing wrong in expressing their emotions, providing how they do it is appropriate and doesn’t harm other people.
