Anger is usually defined as psychometric, rather than a theoretical model and generally, anger treatments have been developed for handling incompatible anger. Roy Adaptation Model‐based intervention not only focuses on problematic behaviors but also on healthy behaviors and to evaluate the individual with a holistic perspective. The research aim was the examination of the effect of the Roy adaptation theory‐based, cognitive‐behavioral approach program on adolescent’s anger management.
In this study, the pretest–posttest control group experimental design, interview, and observation techniques were used. Carried out in a vocational training center, with 60 participants (experimental group 30 and control group 30), who meet the research criteria. The semi‐structured interview forms, the state‐trait anger expression inventory, multidimensional anger scale, and brief symptom inventory were used for data collection. Results have been evaluated to the 95% confidence interval and p < .05 significance level. In data analysis; descriptive statistics, Pearson’s χ
2 test, Mann–Whitney U test, and Wilcoxon Sign tests were used.
There was a significant difference in anger management levels of the experimental group after the adaptation theory‐based therapeutic approach program.
Study results showed that the adaptation‐base therapeutic approach is effective in adolescent’s anger management. This program will contribute to theoretical and practical studies and field experts.
