Mood Management is a skills-building programme designed to help adolescents learn to effectively manage difficult emotions such as anger, depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. On the basis of cognitive behavioural counselling theory, it stresses the importance of prasticing the skills introduced in each unit of the Skills Workbook to achieve and maintain emotional well being The Skills Workbook is primarily written from the perspective of a classroom guidance or group-counselling programme, however clinicians can easily adapt the information to facilitate individual therapy. The workbook contains transparencies which provide visual references to help the adolescent.
