What is the theory behind the Anger Tree Worksheet?

Using the visuals of a tree with fruits on it can be used to teach kids about the importance of ‘choosing’ the right coping strategy when angry. The fruits can be likened to different coping strategies that they can be encouraged to ‘pick’ from in order to control or manage their anger. This will teach them the importance of taking a pause and deciding their next course of action instead of letting their negative emotions such as anger control their behaviour in a negative way. 

How will the worksheet help? 

This worksheet will provide a simple anger tree template. Young clients can write down different coping strategies that they can use to manage their anger on the fruits that they draw on the tree. Then the therapist or counsellor can guide them through the process of ‘picking’ the right strategy when needed so that they don’t simply react to their anger. 

How to use the worksheet?

This worksheet can be used by counsellors or teachers as part of emotional regulation training of young clients in both individual and group settings. Guide the young clients to write down different coping strategies or appropriate ways to manage their anger on the fruits in the tree. Then encourage them to refer to their anger tree to pick the right strategy when needed.
