[This course will take you about 45 minutes to complete.]

All children and young people will experience strong emotions and tantrums. Some children, however, will have more intense anger outbursts. And if these are frequent, it can be particularly stressful for them, and you as their foster carer. There are a number of reasons why the child may experience anger and ways that it will be displayed including verbal and physical outbursts. It will be important for you to understand where this anger is coming from and learn techniques and approaches to coping with the problem when it arises.

In this course, you will learn:
- Why children get angry.
- What happens when they get angry.
- What you can do in the short and long term.
- Developmental and behavioural disorders and anger.
- Additional resources to help you and your foster child.
