Myths About Anger

Anger is inherited

Anger automatically leads to aggression

You must be aggressive to get what you want

Venting anger is always desirableSlide9

Anger Meter

A simple way to monitor your anger is to use a 1 to 10 scale called the anger meter. A score of 1 on the anger meter represents a complete lack of anger or a total state of calm, whereas 10 represents an angry and explosive loss of control that leads to negative consequences. Slide10

Events That Trigger Anger

When you get angry, it is because you have encountered an event in your life that has provoked your anger

Many times, specific events touch on sensitive areas

These sensitive areas or “red flags” usually refer to long-standing issues that can easily lead to anger Slide11

Cues To Anger

A second important way to monitor anger is to identify the cues that occur in response to the anger-provoking event

These cues serve as warning signs that you have become angry and that your anger is escalating

Cues can be broken down into four cue categories: physical, behavioral, emotional, and cognitive (or thought) cues Slide12

Weekly Check In Procedure To Monitor Anger

What was the highest number you reached on the anger meter during the past week?

What was the event that triggered your anger?

What cues were associated with the anger-provoking event?

What strategies did you use to avoid reaching a 10 on the anger meter? Slide13

Anger and The Family and Culture

For many of us, the interactions we had with our parents have strongly influenced our behaviors, thoughts, feelings, and attitudes as adults. With regard to anger and its expression, these feelings and behaviors were usually modeled for us by our parents or parental figures or the culture in which we grew up. Slide19
