Anger Stop Signs Worksheet

What is the theory behind this Anger Stop Signs Worksheet?

Anger stop signs are used in anger management training to help individuals identify cues that signal an oncoming anger episode or a sudden increase in anger. Being aware of these signs means they have the power to control their reaction and prevent it from getting destructive for the self and others. The main purpose is to help individuals learn to take pause and reflect on how they can react before they let their anger influence their actions. 

How will the worksheet help?

This worksheet will help individuals seeking anger management skills training to learn to recognize their anger stop signs. Knowing what cues can signal an escalation in their anger can help them control their reaction and give them time to choose to react in a constructive and productive way. 

How to use the worksheet?

This worksheet can be used in individual or group counselling sessions on anger management training. After a thorough session on what anger stop signs mean and look like, instruct individuals to write down their own anger stop signs based on their prior experiences and continue to write them down based on future observations.
