Anger Issues

There are many reasons why children would have anger issues.  One of the reason is that the child does not have the skills to manage his/her anger.  Anger issues can also be a symptom of another issue, such as depression, oppositional defiant disorder, reactive attachment disorder, or trauma.  A complete history and assessment is needed in order to differentiate anger issues.
