Adolescence is a stage when young people extend relationships beyond their parents and family. It is a time of intense influence of peers, and the outside world in the society. A desire to experiment and explore can manifest in a range of behaviors-exploring sexual relationships, alcohol, tobacco and other substances abuse. The anxiety and stress associated with achievement failure, lack of confidence etc are likely to lead to depression, anger, violence and other mental health problems. A pre experimental research study was carried out to evaluate the effectiveness of a planned teaching programme on anger management for adolescent students. A total of 60 adolescents students of 12 to 15 years of age were drawn by multiple sampling techniques (i.e 20 from class 7th, 20 from class 8th and 20 from class 9th). Data was collected using Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and Adolescent Anger Checklist (AACL). Pretest data collection was followed by five days anger management programme and post test assessment with the same tools. There was significant decrease in anger levels in D1 ‘intensity’, D2 ‘frequency’, D ‘mode of expression’, D4 ‘duration”, and D5 ‘effect on inter personal relationships’. The reduction in the level of anger was seen through the mean score comparison between pre test and post test. The mean difference between the pre- test and post- test anger level was 19.10. In order to find the difference statistically “t” value was computed (t59 = 15.96) showed that the tabulated t-value (df =59) was less then calculated t-value. The mean difference between pretest VAS and AACL was -.0005 and post test mean difference was -.0015.
