About the Book

This volume presents unique, culturally relevant interventions that can teach coping skills to African American boys with a history of aggression. Stevenson provides the history and current events for readers to understand why these youths perceive violence as the only way to react. Interventions and preventative actions developed in the PLAAY project (Preventing Long-Term Anger and Aggression) are presented. These include teaching coping skills and anger management via athletics such as basketball and martial arts. Frustrations and strengths in those athletics illuminate the players' emotional lives, and serve as a basis for self-understanding and life skill development.

About the Author:

Howard C. Stevenson Jr. is associate professor with tenure in the School, Community, and Clinical Child Psychology Program at the University of Pennsylvania. His five-year PLAAY project (Preventing Long-Term Anger and Aggression in Youth) was sponsored by the National Institutes of Mental Health.
