This study explored whether leadership is necessary when working with angry youth. Fifty middle school-aged adolescents served as participants. Eighteen received a strength-based, leadership-driven anger management group, while 18 participants received the same anger management group, devoid of the leadership component. Sixteen participants served as a control group and did not receive either of the two treatments. Results indicated the leadership-driven group had the most reduction in overall anger.
