<li>• what kinds of aggression are considered normal for a young person’s age and stage of development?</li>

<li>• what kinds of aggression may suggest that a young person has a problem that needs specialized intervention?</li>


<p><em>Acting Out</em> aims to help you answer “yes” to these questions. It describes the causes of aggressive behaviour in young people, and discusses approaches to handling it.</p>
